My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 232: There's a million-year-old bug in my rice!


Back to the


There's a fossil in my lunchbox. Today's lunch features simmered shiitake mushrooms over rice, out of the latter of which I made a trilobite. Hey, some people make Sanrio characters out of rice balls and nori, I go for prehistoric bugs. Plus, this goes with my recent steampunk bentos, as I based it on Agatha's locket from Phil & Kaja Foglio's excellent comic Girl Genius.

Also, we got a meat pie, some steamed yellow squash, four bacon-wrapped mushrooms that are in danger of being overgrown by steamed broccoli florets, and coconut mochi. Yes, I was cleaning out my fridge & freezer; how could you tell?
