Sushi! For those of you who missed it, my wife has a semi-obsession with bento boxes, which are Japanese lunchboxes. They are meant to be decorative as well as functional, and there are blogs and websites that discuss it. I'm behind it because I like cooking stuff for my wife, and I'm always happy whenever she finds something she's really into. Part of looking forward to her working is looking forward to making her fancy lunches. She's into making some stuff for it too, so she bought a fancy rice cooker.
I ran out for some beer and dinner tonight, and I stumbled across an Ultimate Sushi Kit that I thought would be just perfect. It came with sushi rice, pickled ginger, and a bunch of other sushi fixings and accessories. I'm also thinking an X-Acto knife and a small bamboo cutting board might be a good idea as well. As per last night's post, gadgets and such always seem like a good idea to me. ALWAYS. I'm even considering some small squirt bottles, like the mustard and ketchup bottles in a diner, to decorate the food with swirls of fancy sauces. I'm not generally an artistic type... except when it comes to food. Then, I want to really get creative.
I have little doubt that tomorrow or Sunday, I'll have some pictures up. Lunch has never been so interesting, has it?
