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.
