My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 308: Pink eggs?


Back to the


NBC Peacock? Ah, food coloring. There is so much fun contained in those four tiny bottles. It allows one to make things like the shading in the rolled omelet here. I started with a cup of beaten eggs, and made the first layer without coloring. I added a drop of red and made the next layer, which was orange. Another drop for a pink layer, and another drop for brighter pink. For contrast, the omelet is resting on a bed of stir-fried teriyaki tofu. Below it is some edamame fresh out of the freezer. On the other side, we got a sesame-seed-covered mochi, a grove of takenoko no sato (chocolate covered bamboo-shoot-shaped cookies), and a fruit salad with mango, grapes, and lychees.

Just for the record, I went to Tomato - another of Atlanta's Japanese groceries - right before making this, and somehow I didn't use a single thing I just bought. Go figure.
