Tiffin Tuesday - berry time!

Left side: Homemade veggie wontons and one storebought veggie dumpling, tamagoyaki with nori wrapping, a condiment cup of wild raspberries, blueberries and lingonberries* and a tube of organic fairtrade sugar for the berries.
Right side: Two onigiri (one with mixed rice and furikake, one with plain white rice), raw red bell pepper slices, and some chanterelle mushrooms fried in butter.

The berries and mushrooms are picked in the forest. It's berry-picking time! :D

* For the readers who aren't from Europe, lingonberries are a tart little berry about the size of a blueberry. It is almost, but not quite, like a cranberry. Smaller, for one.
I had for ages translated them as cranberries, but the Swedes are quite insistent it's not the same thing...
They are quite delicious in marmelade, which is often served with meat (instead of ketchup) or cheese.

Veggie wantons - I made potsitckers the other day for Soeren's lunch box and he loved them. So I have to try out wontons. Unfortunately we do not get fresh longonberries here - only when we make a trip to Ikea do we buy some Lingonberry jam!
