This lunch is quite an eclectic mix of "whatever
I had in my fridge." Mini-pita
chicken sandwiches, each of which is a little bit of chicken
smeared with mayo, wrapped in a lettuce leaf, and stuffed
into half a mini-pita shell. I have a boiled egg
(which spent some time getting acquainted with my star-shaped
egg mold) on stir-fried
cabbage which is bordered by simmered shiitake mushrooms.
there's steamed Japanese sweet
potato and steamed purple sweet
potato, and finally fruit kebabs
served on a few orange slices.
Lately the sweet potatoes I've been buying have been
kind of dry, so this time I tried slicing them into
1/2" thick coins and steaming them instead of baking
them. The result is as you'd expect: moister, differently
textured, but tasting the same. Sure doesn't look as
pretty, though! I stuck the fruit on toothpick-sized
bamboo skewers after thinking that the grapes and berries
and such reminded me of the gems in "Columns"
(an old Sega Genesis game) and thus they would look
pretty impaled in groups of three on wooden stakes. Er... well, you know
what I mean.
