love Halloween. So, of course I'm gonna dress up my
lunch! I started out with candy-corn-shaped onigiri.
The rice is colored with plain ol' food coloring, molded
in triangle onigiri molds, and then reshaped a little
by hand to give them the right elongated shape. Then
there's some baked sweet potato
coins with a nori Jack-o-lantern face. It's surrounded
by steamed broccoli foliage
and enoki toadstools. Up above is an attempt at
an pan stuffed with pumpkin
pie filling, which (as I mentioned before) didn't come
out well. Since I call such baking mishaps "Igors,"
which fits the theme perfectly, I went ahead and packed
one. (They taste fine, they're just homely as all get
out.) It's being invaded by gummi worms. And finally,
there are some tamarinds.
I am consciously refraining from making any remarks
concerning black cats, and if you have no idea why,
consider yourself lucky!
