so nice to be back home with the boyfriend and doggy, catching up on my DVR, and back to bento, too! miami was great (the conference was academically stimulating and i networked up the wazoo!), but like they say, there’s no place like home.
tomorrow’s lunch is a tofu piggy, dyed in 2 drops of red food coloring and water, and then pan fried with salt, pepper, sesame oil and garlic powder. i fried up all the scraps from cutting the piggy, too, and those are buried underneath the rice. this piggy is sniffing a takuwan and red pepper flower with parsley leaves.
my fruit and veggie section, separated by lettuce baran, has takuwan, asparagus, broccoli (with a cheese butterfly), grape tomatoes, pea pods, flower-cut carrots, and two blackberry-and-kumquat skewers.
looking forward to catching up on all the bento blog and flickr entries i missed last week!
