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?
