My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 365: The Colors Blue and Purple


Back to the


Chicken of the Seafood It's Friday, which is the Summer rerun season of the bento week. (Did that make any sense at all?)

Anyway, here we have a kaleidoscope of leftovers, blue and otherwise! octopus & vegetable yakiudon (made with homemade blue noodles), a little grilled chicken on steamed broccoli, and baked purple sweet potato with baby carrots for color contrast and munchiness. Then there's something new: blueberry mochi. It's actually baked coconut mochi with food coloring and blueberries. It turned out really well! Next time I make it, I might try steaming some to see if it comes out more like the soft, no-crust stuff you get in stores.

Wanna talk about it?
