What's with the stuff on my noodles?
Normally I buy grated parmesan. Sometimes I purchase a block of parmesan and grate it myself. Shaved parmesan is new. To me it's exciting. To A-chan it's a change worthy of gasps and cries of alarm. "What's that stuff? That stuff on my noodles?" There was a noticeable undercurrent of disgust in her quavering voice. I patiently explained that it was parmesan cheese, just like we normally put on noodles. She wasn't convinced. We compromised with a 'try it at lunch and see'.
In the bento: Spaghetti noodles, shaved parmesan, nectarine chunks, steamed broccoli, cara cara orange slices, baby corn spears, and a colossal black olive.
I've started getting back into a morning yoga routine. I'm finding that it's a great time to do some prep cooking - these noodles were boiling while I was stretching which makes for great time management!
