Bento for 2011-01-19

Main Bento

Roasted cashews used to be a default filler for me, now less so.

Small bottle of Annie’s Tuscany Italian dressing, one of the few salad dressings I like.

Broccoli, carrot, and cabbage slaw. I’m starting to really like those pre-prepared dry slaws; previously I’d only experienced soggy slaws from cafeterias. I can add as much or as little dressing as I want, and it makes for a really quick side salad or spring roll filling.

Aidell’s Cajun Style Andouille is spicy and goes quite well with some Jamaican rice (here using adzuki beans, not that you can really tell from the picture).

Snack Bento

I’ve found that I really need a post-lunch snack in mid-afternoon to keep going.

Almond Nut Thins have completely replaced potato chips for me.

Pamela’s Extreme Chocolate Mini-Cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free, and enjoyably sinful.

Freeze-Dried Pineapple Crunchies are quite good. Their strawberry version, which I tried on Friday, isn’t to my taste at all.
