Left: strawberries, kiwi, mango, and mandarin oranges
Right: SPAM fried rice with egg flowers (GF)
Snack bento (non-GF): steamed bun with spinach filling, panda cake (for Tai Shan!), mini-choux a la creme pastries
The beautiful weather we had this weekend is starting to go away. I just wish spring would get here already! My gyoza-pleating friends and I went to the National Zoo on Sunday, and we were lucky enough to see the baby panda. Isn't Tai Shan cute?
You can't really tell in the picture above, but the pink flowers are sakura-shaped and the yellow flowers are normal flowers. I made thin 1-egg omelets and then used my cookie cutters to make the shapes. The pink tinge is from food coloring (I should make green eggs and ham one day). I kind of made the rice up as I went along, but it came out pretty tasty!
1 1/4" slice of Spam, diced into little cubes
1/4 red bell pepper, diced
diced onion, about the same amount as the red bell pepper
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1 cup cooked rice (leftover rice works best)
1/2 tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. sake
1 egg (or 2 eggs if you are going to be cutting shapes)
