it's me and darling during finals week! that's the exact face we end up making sometimes. xD
only one day left. i didn't have any finals in my last quarter (woot woot), but darling did. poor baby, at least he got a cute little bento lunch out of it.
i like to think ninja'd it into his fridge, special ops style... (more like i walked in during studying and was like, "hey dude. lunch in the fridge," haha)
the onigiri are filled with canned bbq eel with tobasco sauce, mmmm sooo good, seriously. if you have never tried asian canned eel you need to get your hands on some. it's a like eel at a sushi place (unagi) but saltier and ...harder? like sardines/anchovies. hard to beat.
...but then you get to the stir fry. OMG. i'll admit that this was somewhat of a (delicious) accident. i had some leftover hot sauce from a curry eating contest, so i tossed it over my veggies while they defrosted (busy students don't have time to shop fresh). i came back and stir fried them as usual with soy sauce and garlic, but had this amazing sweet/sour kick to it! i remembered i had tossed this random hot sauce in so i went back and looked it up for you. :D it's called Floyd's Famous HotLime Sauce, made of key lime juice and habanero. i would have a picture but i already recycled the bottle. ):
apparently it's a small-company, west-coast thing. i used about 1-1.5 tablespoons of the extra-hot version (there is a pansy green version also) in 1 small pan of stir fry, which is about two servings. if you want some and a) don't live in norcal/oregon/washington or b) can't find something similar where you are; you can get single bottles direct from their website for $8. it's gooooood stuff.
and just to round out the pictures:
dessert = japanese candies but of course they end up as appetizer instead. 9_9 *sigh*
"don't eat meeeeeeee!"
