Temari Rabbit 2-Tier Bento #71
Having concluded that I need to try to get myself out of a rut, I decided to make this very odd looking meal. I had bought some ground pork on sale for 99 cents per pound and needed to find a recipe for it; Going Solo in the Kitchen had this recipe for a Chinese-inspired pork meatballs-and-cabbage dish. They are more like patties than meatballs and this doesn't look like much, I'll grant you, but it was amazing. I had it with rice and a cup of applesauce with cranberry relish added for color.
Cooked cabbage isn't exactly pretty, but I love it in almost every iteration. For some reason, however, I rarely cook cabbage myself--maybe because, cheap though it may be, a whole head of cabbage is a bit much for one person.
