Laptop Lunches #41
Having eaten all of my leftover chicken in last night's fried rice, today was a no-leftovers day. I wonder why no-leftover days look so much like kid lunches? I don't intentionally set out to make kid friendly things, but looking at all this in the morning I shook my head at myself and wondered why I couldn't be more of a grown up.
I said I would try peanut butter-banana mini kebabs another way, and I am pleased to report that it worked. First, assemble them, then paint the lemon juice on. Also, in the midst of this, I realized that the lemon juice adds something important to the flavor, in addition to preventing browning, which I honestly find very strange, but I guess it's no stranger than Granny Smith apple slices (also tart) dipped in peanut butter, which I and many other people happen to really like.
This was about a B+. As I tell my students, it takes more than above average effort to get an A. I'll keep working on it!
