Ok, today I was teaching, and it was not a last minute thing, so I knew I needed a lunch. So yesterday, dinner was planned with the bento in mind. I explained in my previous post what I planned so here's the pictures!
Top left corner of the "yellow box" (that's mine) is the mini-frittatas. In the "blue box" (my husband's) the frittatas on at the top right corner.
My mini-frittatas are the ones made in the metal pan, they aren't as well shaped. They also have mushrooms, which my husband won't eat. His are smaller, well shaped and mushroomless. ;op
In my box the chicken is on the top right corner, his is on the top left corner. Both are leftover from wednesday's roasted chicken.
As dessert, we both have bluberries and I used cherry tomatoes to fill the gaps cause things were moving around a bit.
At the bottom left corner (both boxes) is the Shredded Green Beans, with lemon-lime zest and snipped chives. I sprinkled shredded carrot over it just to make it look cute. I was in a hurry so I wasn't as careful with the sprinkling for my husband's box.
On the bottom right corner, I have the Citrus-Chive Whole Grain Couscous. I sprinkled a bit of chives on there, but it was really small and it doesn't show on the picture.
It was very filling and still "light". I got comments on my lunch from some of the teachers too.
This is my most "bento feeling" bento so far! I'm all happy with it! Tomorrow: San Francisco, FINALLY!!!!!! I'll be reporting on my bento shopping adventure!
