Bento Shopping Snack
Saturday we had many weary shopping-type errands, and I am not a very hardy shopper so I packed us a snack bento:
I was thrilled to discover that an English muffin fits perfectly ( with just a little smooshing!) into each layer of this Chinese bento box which has two little ghost-looking creature-heads on it and says
beside them. I fried tofu slices in some sesame oil and put a thin layer of Dijon mustard on each muffin side, plus lettuce. It was terrific! We needed them after being overwhelmed by the entire wall of flip flops which had appeared in Target:
There were two young ladies trying them on furiously, and one said to the other,
"I go through a pair of flip flops in a month".
Does she run marathons in them?
But O how I wish I had a 6-year old daughter who could wear these!
Can't you just see these, standing at the bus stop, all of life ahead of them, ready for mud puddles and spring?
