Bento (No. 82)

Here’s another one of my ‘boring’ bentos for myself.

I have half of a veggie sausage sandwich, salmon paste lettuce wraps, cherry tomatoes, hummus and cucumber for dipping.

I always take lots of fruit for snacks and lunch additions so I know it doesn’t look a lot, it was only part of a bigger picture (of my daily food).

Has anyone got any easter choccy left? Some people think I’m strange still having some left!

Bento No.49

Quick post for a fantastic Bento (if I do say so myself). Had this wonderful gem yesterday and I was ecstatic the whole of the day because of it. I’m not sure whether it’s the colours, or the range of foods in it, or that I managed to fit that much food in a small bento box!

In this tightly packed sistema box, (starting from top left) I had beetroot, sushi rice with  sushi vinegar and furikake on a bed of lettuce, mixed salad with lettuce, pepper, olives, mange-tout, carrots and baby sweetcorn, crunchy cheese rounds (microwaved cheese crispy things), pancake muffin topped with grapes (cut into tulip shapes), cherry tomato and carrots.

100th Post!! (Bento No.42/43/44 – Special)

Today is a special post!!

This is my 100th blog post!! And of course it has to be a bento post! To mark this special occasion, I am including not one, not two, but three bentos in todays post!

First up is my bento. I have told you that I have boring lunches so no apologies for this one! The bento has deconstructed lettuce sandwiches. I don’t have a lot of bread as I’m not a fan, so I use lettuce instead to make wraps/roll-up type things. To go in the wrap I have sliced carrots and cucumber, chicken slices (on top of the lettuce leaves) and hummus sprinkled with milled flax seed (hiding in the top left corner). I did have snacks to go with: satsuma, mini pack of popcorn, cereal bar, blueberries and grapes. Lovely and healthy 🙂

Next is my brothers lunch. I make it simple and easy to eat as I never know whether he’s off out or college or something (he’s college age). He has cheese, cucumber and mustard sandwich on seedy bread, unsalted cashews and salted peanuts in the small green lidded box, sliced peppers, cherry tomatoes and a homemade nest cake in the foil. Again, nice and balanced and healthy 🙂 with a little treat. My brothers bento has no accompanying sides.

This last one is my bf’s main dish bento. He had leftover tagliatelle in tomato and cream cheese sauce with mushrooms and leeks and cheese on top, and a side salad of cucumbers and carrots (with a little cheese on top too) with cherry tomatoes down the middle. The bf usually has lunchbox additions (aside from the main bento) of malt loaf, fruit (apple, satsuma, grapes or banana), a treat (so in this case a homemade nest cake) and other bits and pieces. Nice and healthy again! I’m on a roll!

Well, what a post for my 100th one 🙂 hope everyone is having a fantastic day!!

How long ago did you start blogging?

Bento No.30

This is yesterdays Bento, as I’m on a smoothie/soup day today 🙂

I had anice quick salad with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, and radishes (they are all under there, the lettuce is hiding it), a silicon cupcake case of cheese, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds (to put on the salad before eating), a chocolate Hello Kitty (christmas stash) and a clementine and blueberries.

I’ve also been taking more snacks with me, as I do get peckish occasionally and I don’t want to keep reaching for the biscuits! The snack that accompanied this bento was sliced red pepper and ham wrapped dates.

I’m not usually a fan of dried dates or figs, but I tried them the other day with ham, and I loved them! Future snacks sorted!

Have you tried anything new lately that you’ve had a new found liking for?
