Temari Rabbit 2-Tier Bento #3
The cheese and gingerbread are from lyktabento. She said they were meant to be eaten together. I was somewhat baffled, and it took guts to give that one a try, but it actually turned out to be really good! It was a strong flavor, and I couldn't eat all that I'd packed, but I enjoyed it and finished the rest later. I wondered if the gingerbread wouldn't be like other gingerbread I'd eaten, and so would not be like putting cheese on a cookie, but it was rather like putting cheese on a cookie. I decided that if cheesecake can have a graham cracker crust (and what is a graham cracker if not a cookie pretending to be a cracker?) it made at least some sense.
If I'd had a hard boiled egg or something I would have thrown that in, but instead I put in the packet of peanut cakes I bought from the Asian market over the weekend. (I went a little crazy there; you'll see kind of a lot of new Asian things from me for a while.) If you open the packets they crumble, so I just left them as is, but they're pretty nice--just peanuts mashed with a little sugar, so kind of like very dry peanut butter.
Thanks again, lytkabento!
