This was yesterday’s lunch, and I decided to mix things up by putting the rice along the long side of my lunchbox. (I know, hold onto your seats, I’m getting crazy up in here.) Either my sense of proportions is off, or I actually eat less rice than I thought: I’d always thought it was a solid third of the lunch that was rice.
I was feeling the need for something a little springy, so I made a quick garlic scape omelette (so good!), the celery kinpira (note to self: less pepper next time, holy moly) and filled in the rest with my beloved mushrooms. Not the most inspired lunch, but it still provided surprisingly varied tastes. The egg was a little sweet, the celery was, uh, peppery, and the mushrooms were their usual, umami-y selves.
In other news, even my garden has gotten the memo that spring is here: yay! On the downside, it means there is now a lot of yard and garden work to get caught up on… eek.
