Happy Sunday! No real plans for the day, so I did some food shopping and cooking. For dinner, I made cottage pie (like shepherd’s pie, but with beef instead of lamb) because mashed potatoes sounded awesome:
I also worked on my presentation a bit, chopping up and layering some fruit. I’m calling this construction “fruit-a-touille” because it’s very similar to a layered ratatouille I make (similar to the one in the film). This one has strawberries and bananas; I wanted to layer some kiwi slices in there too, but the kiwis I got aren’t ripe yet.
I got fresh bananas today with the hope that they’d last through the day in the bento, so made banana bread out of the softer ones I already had. Also, I’m having bad luck keeping strawberries around (they seem to mold pretty instantly) so after chopping up a few, I cooked down the rest into a compote, which seems to last much longer. Also, it’s delicious on banana bread.
