101013 Wednesday, Parshat Lech Lecha
Left: white rice with croutons in a used teabag*, a packet of duck sauce, and dried cranberries in the green silicone star-shaped mini-cup, steamed broccoli with shreds of carrot, cherry tomatoes and black olives
Right: lettuce and dressing in Winnie th' Pooh's head, dates, heart-shaped banana muffin (made from Fannie Farmer Baking Book's Kona Inn banana bread recipe minus the nuts, with raisins)
Bottom: Camel-shaped cheese sandwich with cheese, carrot, and cranberry accents, standing on a cheese stick. (Camels feature in this week's Torah portion heavily - Rivka gave them water to drink, passing Eliezer's litmus test for kindness, and later she fell off her camel when she first saw Yitzchak.)
* The Matcha tea I like comes in fabric bags. I cut them open, empty and rinse them for re-use. They make perfect quasi-disposable dried condiment carriers.
