Friday was my husband's birthday. We had a good day, but without bento, and I ran late on all my online stuff!
Summer is a challenge isn't it?
So, we did have bento boxes Thursday and it was actually pretty yummy. Here's what we had:
Top left: I had Spicy Barley Pilaf (had it frozen) with a little bit of lettuce and a heart shaped cup of blueberries (not eaten with the barley obviously!).
Top right: I had steamed veggies with a heart shaped cup of steamed lentils.
Bottom: I had a ground turkey with vegetables dish that I dug out of the freezer.
It ended up being a LOT of food!
My husband had the same thing, just laid out differently:
Yesterday I did some thinking ahead and that's a good thing cause I slept in this morning. Here's my box:
Lower tier (left): Curried couscous with a little cup of steamed lentils.
Top tier (right): steamed veggies (steamed last night) and hard boiled eggs (boiled and shaped last night). The picture doesn't show it well, but the eggs are shaped in a bear shape and a fish shape.
My husband had the same thing, but his eggs were in the shape of a little car and a bunny!
So we're still bento-ing of course, but we skip a day every once in a while. It's summertime, I don't work daytime, so sometimes I like a freshly cooked lunch.
I'm not giving up though, I love this too much!
Happy Bento everybody!
