leftovers looking good

food tastes better when it looks good on the plate. it follows that leftovers taste better when presented well. even a boxed lunch can look appetizing if you put a little thought into it.

i like the shallower, wider plastic containers for this. here, i packed a measuring cup with brown rice so that the rice would retain the cupped shape, repeated, threw in leftover stirfry, and garnished with organic kumquats.

(since you eat the peel, organic is the only way to with kumquats. they are available at open harvest, and they're sold by the pound. so you can buy a few to try without spending a lot of money.)
