My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 324: Mmm, tentacles.


Back to the


Earth tones vs. bright colors So I have a lot of leftover rice. Time for fried rice!  But with what? Beef? Nah, I'm gonna use what I have for the next try at pseuki yaki. Chicken? That'll take too long to defrost and I'm hungry now. So what won't take too long? Hey! lookit those little Ziplocs of octopus! SOLD!

Wouldn't you know it, what I thought was octopus was actually squid. You know what I'm talking about; you've probably made the same mistake yourself. Oh well, I got extra tentacles in my squid fried rice out of the deal. (Click on the pic to see lots of tentacles. I didn't skimp on the squid!) I fixed the rice as per usual, and added the squid in at the very end and cooked them lightly; squid is easy to overcook and overcooked squid is tough and not too appealing.

There's also the last of the stir-fried asparagus and a fruit salad with mango, baby bananas, strawberries, grapes, and persimmon. I've certainly been in a fruity mood this week, haven't I?

Wanna talk about it?
