I think I'm ready to cheer on the United States soccer team against Ghana this afternoon. I made soccer bento lunches. America is a melting pot of culture, so even though the food isn't especially American, the spirit is there.
A soccer ball made of sweet rice and decorated with toasted nori, cooked spinach "grass", grape tomatoes from the garden, vanilla yogurt with fresh raspberries and blueberries, and a tuna salad sandwich made with a cream puff shell.
I figured we needed a festive dessert, as well, so there are cream puffs filled with whipped cream and strawberries.
This should be an exciting game! The two teams are pretty evenly matched, and one of Blaze's best friends is from Ghana. We live in very ethnically diverse housing and several of our neighbors are from African countries.
