In Australia it seems all outlets that sell lottery tickets have a little motorised cat on the counter by the cash register, its paw constantly bobbing forward to confer luck. In Japan they’re called maneki-neko. I’ve always thought them charming, so when I saw this maneki-neko lunch box on ebay I had to buy it…and then quickly found a furoshiki cloth to go with it. I love it :)!
The meal was simple…beef burgers, sauteed spinach, peppers and carrots, and some purple pickled radishes, carrots and cabbage with ginger. For dessert I had some homemade yogurt with strawberry sauce. The yogurt was made in my Thermomix…as was the rice. I’m trying lots of new things and having fun with it! I made this lunch last week and haven’t had a chance to do anything specifically seasonal. So I’ll call it a day and say Happy Easter everyone!
