Being vegetarian can bring a lot of difficulty over the Thanksgiving holiday. Most of my family doesn't understand that we don't eat meat and the T-day becomes a confrontational event that I just avoid by staying home. This year my mom is going to come have Thanksgiving with us, though! I'm so excited that I'm cooking enough for an army or two and have been going crazy with the cleaning. I've been asked probably 20 times this week if we're doing a Tofurky. Nope! I did try one a few years ago but didn't find it very satisfying. My menu calls for Soy sausage rolls as the main course. Not only are they yummy by themselves but they are great with gravy on top. And if there are any leftover they can be frozen to use in bentos.
A-chan has been busy all afternoon making decorations and taping them up in various locations around the house.
I don't have another T-day themed bento ready but here is the cutest clementine ever :) A-chan has recently discovered Clementines and the fact that she can peel them herself. We are both delighted by this discovery and enjoying their yummy orange goodness just about every day right now.
In the bento: A container of black beans, clementine with nori, black sesame seeds and mozzarella face details, halved baby tomato, steamed broccoli and baby corn. The other side is full of Japanese curry with a jasmine rice frame on top, baby corn and carrot flowers at the four corners.
