Lunch Box 493: Napping Octopus


Back to the


Siesta In today's lunch I have a boiled baby octopus resting on a bed of rice. The octopus is headless - I used that bit for a recent batch of takoyaki - so I gave it a cap made of a slice of baked sweet potato. Imagine that that's a sombrero and that it's napping under there.

On the other side, there's boiled mustard greens, because the grocery store was out of spinach. They aren't bad, especially when you make a lasagna-like concoction with layers of greenery and mayonnaise. And finally, some baked purple sweet potato and a chocolate caramel cookie. Alas, no recipe for the cookie, as a friend baked it.

Wanna talk about it?
