My 113th vegetarian bento came along to work today, on Friday the 6th of August. I probably should be glad I reached this number now instead of next week, when it’ll actually be Friday the 13th! Better not tempt fate :P

Friday, the #113th Bento (06-08-2010)

Round container: Elstar apple slices with lemon juice and a pinch of cinnamon.
Rectangular container: red berries with ‘snow sugar’.
Bento tier: lettuce & basil lining, cucumber, tasty tom tomato, parsley, and root kinpira with wasabi sesame seeds.
On the side: picknicker veggie snack.

I also wanted to try out my new SnackTaxi sandwich bags, so I brought along two sunflower seed sammies: one spread with houmous & cucumber slices, the other with cheese & tomato. I was a bit apprehensive at first so it seemed the perfect test bringing such wet & greasy fillings and the bag held out great! My bread didn’t dry out neither. Wonderful! A gorgeous re-usable cloth pouch is so much more fun than plastic waste :))

I would also love to have some green Food Kozys from Kid Konserve but none of the online shops wants to ship to The Netherlands :( Sometimes the web isn’t as grand as it seems! But don’t think me ungrateful; I’m really happy with my recent purchases :))

Organic & local: berries, lettuce, carrot, navret, fennel, parsley, cucumber, basil.
Organic: vegetarian snack.
Total ww propoints: 11.5 (including both sammies but I only ate one; the other will be turned into a grilled cheese sandwich tomorrow ;) = 8 ww propoints for lunch in the end.

Three kinds of radish
Last Thursday I told you about the comparative test we were supposed to do with the 3 different csa radishes we found in our veggie bag. Well, here’s the result you’ve all been waiting for! ;)

— Drumroll —

3: the ‘ordinary’ round radish
2: the long red one

Number 1: the WHITE radish!!!

The root vegetables were tested by wlfr, Mr Gnoe and myself. Mr Gnoe and I ate them with, and without (sea) salt.

Wlfr did the test by himself (probably salted) and sent us his verdict by e-mail:

Wlfr's radish rating

Cool, right? As always, his and my verdict were completely opposite… Actually, we all had different tastes concerning the three types!

The plain round one was my favourite; the white came first for Mr Gnoe. So he would have won the (con-)test… if it had been a bet ;)

My number 1 was juicy, sweet and spicy at the same time. The white winner started out with a subtle taste and turned into a sharp lingering taste. “Multiple consecutive sensations,” as Mr Gnoe put it. [sic.] The long red one was well… just pretty pungent and a bit too tough to my taste — although Mr Gnoe disagreed.

Anyway, it was a fun thing to do! :) Hope you’ve enjoyed our experiment a little as well? ;)

Gnoe goes ExtraVeganza!
