While talking to my husband tonight about what I was going to make for Molly's lunch he said, "can I get in on that?" So, tonight we made some extras for Daddy to bring for his lunch tomorrow.
*cooks note: if using natural peanut butter you might need to add extra oil. I would recommend using regular peanut butter for this particular dish.
Our vegetables, we have two to make up for the lack of vegetables today, are thinly sliced cucumbers with a splash of rice wine vinegar on them and edamame. The cucumbers are an homage to the yummy cucumber salads that are available in Japanese restaurants.
Our fruit/dessert is a sweet pear, also known as a Seckel pear. It has a more firm flesh and a very sweet taste, hence the nickname sweet pear. I highly recommend them because they are small and very sweet which are usually two favorable things with most kids. Not necessarily an Asian pear, but a pear nontheless.
