In place of Fancy Sandwich Friday today, I'm taking part in a Dr. Who blog hop with my bento blog buddies :)
My lunch today is based on the episode " The Eleventh Hour" from season 5. I've seen more episodes from this season than any other ( so far). I really like Amy Pond, and I think Matt Smith makes a great Doctor! To help explain my lunch, here's a video clip:
So here's what my hubby is taking for lunch today:
It should look like fish fingers and custard - but I admit, I didn't have any fish, so these are actually chicken fingers and custard : ) I made them gluten free and they turned out really good - so we're all eating chicken fingers for lunch today. The breading is made from a combination of instant potato flakes, millet flour, and tapioca starch with a sprinkle of dry chicken boullion powder and seasoned salt for flavor. The "custard" is actually lemon pudding. The chicken fingers are on a bed of rice, and have a few veggies as a garnish. The letters are cheddar cheese.
Why the apple? In the episode " The Eleventh Hour" Amy, as a little girl, gives the doctor an apple with a smiley face.
When he returns, 12 years later than he said he would - he convinces Amy that he's a real time traveler by giving her back the same apple, as fresh as the day he got it.
