for tomorrow’s lunch, i have two spicy-tofu-stuffed onigiri topped with “mameshiba” (bean dog) faces. the faces are made from rice colored with green deco-furi, edamame ears, and nori facial features.
the rest of the box has steamed broccolini, two salmon cakes topped with a carved carrot flower, a red and a yellow tomato, two purple potato slices, a piece of takuwan that i twisted like konnyaku, and some fish sausage flowers with corn kernel centers. for dessert, a decadent, buttery shortbread “petticoat tail” — yum!
