well, supposedly it’s spring, but it hasn’t felt like it for the past couple days in NYC — chilly temperatures and constant rain, ranging from a drizzle to a downpour. hopefully tomorrow’s lunch will cheer up my day!
these chirping chicks are made from rice colored with the yellow deco-furi (rice powder) packet from the package of 5 colors that my sweet bento pal sent me (thanks again, you-know-who!). they have nori eyes, edamame beaks, and the sister chick has gochujang cheeks and a fish sausage flower. they’re in the medium size from this lovely lace cups set i got in my j-list box this week.
this tiffin-style box is pretty deep, so i put a thick layer of mixed salad greens down before i added the chicks. then i filled the rest of the box in with steamed broccoli, a few more fish sausage flowers, grape tomatoes, takuwan slices with sesame seeds, flower-cut carrots, and a slicked chik-n patty (soy chicken). i would call this lunch vegetarian, except that i suspect the deco-furi is fish-based. oh, and the fish sausage too, i guess. oh well, it’s mostly veggie.
here’s a close-up of this chirping brother and sister:
wishing you all a sunny wednesday!
