My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 32: Winking lunch


Back to the


I always feel that somebody's watching meHere we have shrimp fried rice, broccoli, grapes, manjuu, and an manjuu. Fried rice is so easy to make, and as far as baking-type stuff goes, so are manjuu (steamed, sweet cakelike buns), because you don't have to fool with yeast, and let dough rise, and punch it down, and wait for it to rise again, and all that junk.

The ball on the left is plain manju  with no filling. The one on the right is an manju, meaning it has anko filling. Something like an pan, but much easier to make. I put little dots of dough on the top to indicate which ones had filling - and didn't realize what that would look like after they puffed up. (They look like eyeballs. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.)
