Arrrgh! No matter where I positioned the butterfly or what angle the photo was from, this butterfly just looked awkward to me. It's still a nice butterfly and A-chan liked it a lot, so why am I worrying about it?! I shouldn't, right? Today I made myself a bento too. It was yummy! Have you ever been to a Moroccan restaurant? If you haven't, drop everything and go now. Yes, I mean it - now! Both of our bentos have leftovers from the Moroccan feast that I cooked the other night. Not only is Moroccan food delicious it makes a ton of leftovers which just tickles pink the freezer stash lover in me.
In A-chan's bento: Garlic and Basil couscous, Moroccan chickpeas, carrot butterfly, strawberries, steamed broccoli, carrot hearts, veggie hotdog flowers with green pea centers, and a container of feta cheese.
In my bento: Garlic and basil couscous, Moroccan vegetable stew, pan seared tofu and a perilla leaf.
The sweet Julie Moore got me thinking about couscous recently, making me realize how long it had been since I'd made Moroccan food. I am grateful - I love this stuff! Go have a peek at the post I just made with the couscous, stew and tofu recipes.
Unfortunately A-chan does not share my relish in Moroccan cuisine and totally refused to eat the Vegetable stew. That's why her bento has only the chickpeas, each one individually picked out of the stew to go into her bento. Yep, that's how much I love my girl :)
