Well, the prospect of making bento does get me up and, subsequently, out the door in the mornings. I think it’s just that I can have a relaxed breakfast on the ferry, rather than one rushed at home or something expensive and greasy in the ferry galley.
Also, never underestimate being able to eat a lunch both cheap and dry in the heart of Seattle.
Breakfast Bento: I found a way to make the cereal work!
Plus mandarin oranges and grapes. The rice milk is in an off-screen Lock&Lock. I did try some yogurt last night, but it didn’t work out for me taste-wise.
However, hummus is apparently also a complete protein, so I want to try that next week. And I know I like hummus.
By the way, this is one of my older bento kits, from Zojirushi, who also makes the Mr. Bento bentos. Its components looka little like the ones for either Mr. or Mrs. Bento, but they don’t stack in a single column.
A spoon (or chopsticks) fits across the top, and then I gather it and click the handle like so.
While this is compact, my eBags and Laptop Lunch combo are still thinner. However, it works on the ferry.
Honey bread, peanut butter, strawberry fruit sandwich in the Extra Large container. Apple slices (sigh), goldfish crackers (yay!), and applesauce with cinnamon (didn’t work for me, but I think that was because the apple sauce brand sucked).
I really do like my Laptop Lunch box. But I need to vary the menu more (not that my eating out menu ever varied much…).
I’m thinking rice dishes next week. Maybe make a curry over the weekend for meals next week, since I picked up some Native Forest non-BPA-lined cans of coconut milk. I need to freeze the last of the veggie soup and bisque.
Bake some different bread… go home more, workaholic less… crazy times.
