Whether from excitement, peer pressure or poor time management, Hana’s lunch yesterday was a half bust. However, I’m never one to give up – so here we go with day 2 of packing lunch!
Harusame salad with thinly sliced and sauteed peppers, carrots, onions and shiitake seasoned with sesame oil, soy sauce and a little rice vinegar
Okra parboiled and sliced with a little ponzu
Organic Grapes and carrots sticks in a separate container
Soup – try again with the chicken soup with veggies with turkey and flax meatballs.
Last night, the girls had broiled sanma with grated daikon and soysauce with rice, seaweed salad, sauteed pea shoots with ginger dressing. I also finished off my project of sliced bitter melon sauteed and tossed with cellophane noodles. Next time, thinner slices of bitter melon! All this of course, accompanying the multigrain steamed rice. Ran out of time to make a soup – hopefully I can get the timing right so I can have a miso soup of some sort to round up the meal.
