I’ve done bento posts in the past, but I decided to start up some more. It’s really quite hard to determine calories on the go when you’re eating out.
Today it’s a Laptop Lunch, my favorite style o’ bento box.
- Full-sized peanut butter and strawberry fruit spread sandwich, cut in halves and stacked on top of each other. This container is deep enough to do that.
- Sugar snap peas, which are a rather nice alternative to chips. That’s four ounces worth of them right there.
- One plumegranate, sliced up and put into two containers, because they don’t sell a long container for the box (although they do sell a square that replaces the two larger containers).
Plumegranates, I think, aren’t really a hybrid of plums an pomegranates; rather, they’re a special breed of plum that has quite dark red flesh, reminiscent of a pomegranate. It’s still only got the one stone.
I should take a picture of the other one at home—I think they should call them Night Sky plums, because they look like a night sky without light pollution, complete with Milky Way.
Summer brings us these strange fruit, so I guess I like summer. I miss the apples and clementines of fall and winter. I forget what comes in spring (probably not much).
