Bento is Back! Bento #11

It's been a while without bento. The main reason is that for the past two weeks, Chris has been working at home; no bento required. We've also both been running around like crazy. I still need to re-stock on bento supplies, but managed to make do with what was in the fridge this morning.

Bento #11

Today we have:

  • Carrots! Always with the carrots.
  • Grapes
  • Cheddar cheese slices
  • Hot dog wrapped in tortilla strips to make pseudo pigs in a blanket
  • steamed broccoli and red pepper
  • leftover noodly stuff from the other night

Also, let me reiterate that I am not starving Chris! There really is enough food in one bento box for a human male lunch. We're all used to eating huge portions, but it turns out you can totally get through canadian pharmacy discount code viagra your day on a rational sized lunch. If you don't believe me, try it. Get a 600ml bento and pack it with food. Notice how there aren't any gaps in my bentos (usually). You won't starve, I promise.


Bento #10: Turkey Sandwich Maki

Today is another day for experimental foods. We have:

  • Carrots
  • Orange wedges
  • Pita
  • Laughing Cow cheese wedge
  • Turkey sandwich maki (what?!)

Once a week or so I make fresh rice and freeze it, and today was the day so I wanted to make use of the fresh rice on hand. Using Soy Wraps instead of nori I made maki with sliced turkey, american cheese, and cucumbers. If I'd had more turkey sandwich veggies on hand I'd have used them too. Sprouts seem like they'd be good.

I also attemtped to make banana maki (not pictured) with a soy wrapper, rice, and banana. It came out pretty bland, so next time I may mix purchase viagra in australia some peanut butter up with the rice before rolling it.


Bento #9: Cheese and Crackers!

I’ve been slacking on the bento photos a bit. It’s been a hectic week and while very few of my bentos take more than 10 minutes, staying organized and waking up more than 30 minutes before I’m supposed to leave has been a bit of a challenge.  I’ve also skipped photographing bentos which were just more of the same. And I entirely missed the one with the chicken pot pie. Chris was running out the door so there wasn’t time for theatrics.

This is one of the faster bentos I’ve put together. It couldn’t have taken more than 5 minutes. Today we have:

  • Leftover pasta and meatballs. You’ll recognize this from Bento #7. We’ve finally managed to eat it all!
  • Half an orange. Are you starting to see a pattern? At least I know he’s getting vitamin C.
  • Snow peas
  • Laughing Cow cheese spread
  • Water crackers

Snow peas are great for bentos because you can toss them in raw and they fit in small spaces. I like to eat them cold, but Chris prefers to heat them along with his entree. The laughing cow cheese is also great because it comes in a wheel of eight individually wrapped wedge shaped servings. It’s a soft cheese so it doesn’t really need any utensils.
