Today is a mix of leftovers, frozen fare and easy going summer spirit!
I had some Spiced Carrots left overs, so I put that in and then rummaged through the fridge and freezer to find the rest! That's a 10 minutes bento, including cooking the beans and cooling everything up (in the fridge!).
Here's my box:
Top left: I have the last of my little delicious tomatoes I bought Tuesday at the Embarcadero, and some cut strawberries.
Top right: I have red kidney beans and chickpeas sauteed in salsa, and Spiced Carrots.
Bottom: I have vegetable curry, with a little cup of steamed lentils (TJ).
Everything (except the lentils) is red or orange, and even then, the lentils are brown, so they fit. Since I was already in a color theme, I decided to use my weird little bright orange box. That one I got at Daiso for $1.50. I like the way I can lay out the food in it. Isn't it just cute?
Here's the box closed:
My husband has pretty much the same foods:
Left: Spiced carrots with cut up strawberries. I put in little "picks" to make it easy to eat the fruits and veggies.
Right: I have the vegetable curry, the sauteed beans and 2 Mini Babybel light cheeses.
I didn't have time to heat up grains, I hope it's enough food for him.
I just now realized that his box is dark red, it fits too!
Tomorrow a green box! Just kidding!!
Happy Bento Everybody!
