Another Boring Lunch

>> Monday, November 3, 2008

Well suited for this boring girl and perfect for this boring day. Notice how I went full on Halloween with an appropriately colored container. Go me!

The only thing worth talking about here is those little cupcakes and the only thing worth mentioning about those is the frosting. It's basically an Italian buttercream only I used brown sugar to make the magma and snuck a little cream cheese in with the butter and it ended up tasting like brown sugary cream cheesy buttercreamy illicit sex on a spoon. Or something like that.

The cupcakes themselves? Think ... oily muffin. That whore Martha let me down again.

Hey! Those trays were the ones used at my elementary school!

Talk more about the tray/container. It looks interesting!
PS I almost snorted when I read "That whore Martha" =X

I want a recipe for "illicit sex on a spoon" badly. :D

I still think it looks yummy

Lunchbuckets, you sound like you've lost your gusto. I think your cupcakes are sexy, I'm interested in the red glop in the big section of the plate, and I agree that Martha is a skeeving whore. Sometimes.

Sorry to hear that Martha let you down! LOL. But really? OILY? =S

Well, I think the bento looks amazing!

You call this boring? This kind of boring would thrill my kids, who wonder what's going on with Mom if I decorate their plates with a lonesome parsley sprig.

What's boring about this?? I would gladly eat it if you want. =D

Oh, I wanted to tell you also that your little Lunch Bucket icon, when reduced to the tiny size in the "Follow Me!" box looks JUST like George Jetson!

I'm totally not making this up.

very, very funny post. and that is not a boring lunch. my peanut butter and jelly sandwiches could tell you something about boring lunches.

I'm putting in a request for more info about the container, too.

And if your kid is like mine, the only issue is frosting in the lunch. Its support structure is secondary, at best.

Oh you made me laugh out loud despite getting up at 4:45 with an awful cold and stuffy nose.

That whore Martha - yeah she makes a pretty pretty picture, but I never trust her recipes. My best friend for decadent recipes is Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa.

Thank you for brightening my day :)
