Egg yolk is yellow

Tamago no kimi ha kiiroi Apparently, my favorite fashion blogger paid this blog a visit. So, yay! Thanks so much for dropping by! The Pumpkin Prince had his class trip to the local zoo. He asked for either a Doraemon lunch or a Pokemon lunch. Since my last attempt at blue characters fared badly, I decided to stick to colors found in natural foods.
Pikachu is rice colored/ flavored with boiled egg yolk, salt, and curry powder, with sliced cheese and nori features. The mouth is imitation crab. The Pokemon ball is a hamburger covered with sliced cheese, imitation crab, and nori. I always show the kids the lunches before I pack them in their bags so that they know that the lunch started out as a reasonable likeness. When the Pumpkin Prince saw the lunch, he said, "I wanted Doraemon!" I think 4 1/2 years old is old enough to give the "you're supposed to say thank you before you ask for better/ different/ more" talk, isn't it?

Aha, now I see some of your inspiration for your style.

You and my mom should get together someday and chat style.

Me, I like to think someday I could get stylish (ala my mother), but really I'm just a cowgirl at heart, and as I get older I just keep moving in that direction.

I am flattered that you quoted me.

I should have sent you a postcard from the recent Impressionists and Fashion show at the Art Institute! The next time I'm there I will see if they still have any.

Disclaimer: my usual "look" is middle aged female professor (T-shirt or pullover sweater, chinos, jacket, flats, and scarf. I trade the flats for Birkenstocks when I get to work). Just a couple years ago, I tended to wear tunics and leggings because the nursing top brand I really liked had a lot of cute nursing tunics, and they went well with leggings. But I decided that the look made me look perpetually pregnant, so here I am with my Uniqlo chinos and Eddie Bauer Jackets.

I should footnote you for the quote, shouldn't I?
