On the 7th of July Tanabata is celebrated in Japan, Ebi-kun came home with his tanabata tree decorated with origami and wishes.
 For dinner I made a dregs of the fridge loosely themed tanabata MTD, a handful of stars and some wishes on flags!
TOP L-R potatoes, baked beans, yoghurt
MIDDLE - cucumber, tomatoes, red pepper
BOTTOM - cucumber stars, taco weiners, potatoes
