There’s probably only one person in the community who will get this, but this week’s bentochallenge is “My favourite song” and since I have a weird music taste I took my favourite song in a very special aspect – DDR!
You see, I have this DDR game called “In The Groove” that came with my dancemat. I like it a lot better than the original DDR, actually. And in there is a song called “Xuxa” whose video features a appearing and disappearing rubber ducky, a pond with the label “POND” next to it for some reason and a smiling sun. It’s really cute and incredibly much fun to dance to!
We’ll see if it gets guessed at all!
The yellow rice “rubber ducky” was originally colored with saffron, but since it didn’t get yellow enough I added turmeric in the end. It got a lovely rubberducky yellow, don’t you think? The negative aspect was though that it was very un-sticky afterwards. Hrm. You can see how the ducky crumbles where I stuck the parts together… definitely need more experimenting with different rice sorts for that.
Around the ducky are stirfried broccoli, chinese cabbage, leek, sugar snaps and champignons stirfried with ginger, chili, garlic, limeleaf, soy and mirin. Mmm limeleaf. I don’t need any other flavouring! Why didn’t I get a pack of those before???
Then there is a deco of chinese cabage, carrot “DDR arrows” and in the silver foil cup are jelly beans, walnuts and kompeitou for dessert. I wanted Skittles but the last packet I had left had only red and orange skittles left! Can’t have a red and orange pond now, can I?
Hm, was that technically vegan now? Except for the jellybeans maybe…
