So, as I said on my main blog I went ahead and got me a basic bento box. That was saturday. I couldn't wait to see how I could organize it to put a full lunch in that little box.
I didn't have dividers, so I made one with aluminum foil and covered it with plastic wrap. It worked just fine!
Here's what it looked like today:
Left top corner: Bulgur, soaked with salt pepper and garam masala, mixed with chickpeas and steamed lentils (Trader Joes).
Right top corner: shredded lettuce with salt, pepper, and indian chili powder.
Left bottom corner: Steamed shrimps with salt, pepper, indian chili powder. I used paper cups to try to keep the shrimp stink from going everywhere.
Right bottom corner: Cut up red bell pepper and celery.
I had planned on making a dressing for the salad and cut veggies, but ran out of time. I ate it mixed with the bulgur mix.
I didn't eat it all, it was too much food!
So my first bento lunch isn't overly original, but it was good, and it was filling, and I had a lot of fun putting it together!
I also had to bring breakfast, so I made Steel cut oats with a banana and milk and syrup, nuked it, and put it in my thermos. It was ok when I got there. My thermos isn't exactly the best.
:o) Happy Lunch everybody!
