in this lunch look kind of pale and bland, don't they?
I didn't think about it when I was rolling these, but
when you have avocado, artificial crab, cucumber, and
cream cheese wrapped in rice, well, there's not a lot
of color there. Perhaps I should have spread some orange ikura
on the rice. Still, they tasted quite good.
On the other side we have the everpresent edamame
and the return of baked purple sweet potato. You'll
see a lot of the latter in upcoming lunches. I
bought several pounds of 'em because they're tasty, and purple
food is just so freakin' cool.
Finally, I have some
storebought peanut mochi
balls. The last time I made them they were uber-sticky,
so this time I rolled them in toasted sesame seeds,
which solved the stickiness problem nicely.
