Hello my lovelies! While it’s true that I’ve neglected my bento site for many years now, I still do make bento (though in much simpler forms than previously)! Wow, I can’t believe I started bentoing over 5 years ago now… and stopped over 2 years now… Not working in an office and with slightly more flexible work hours has really affected that. I don’t tend to make bento when I work from home, but I also work in a restaurant and to prevent myself from getting super fat eating everything there, I bring lunch and try not to eat outside of that. So… here are photos of the bentos I’ve had over the past month!
Wrap with peanut butter and Fritos inside – yes, I did – mish mash pasta with artichoke garlic cream, mushrooms, and corn, and a fresh mozz, Sappori tomato, and plum salad with Cherry Gold balsamic vinegar. I don’t usually think to add fruit to these things but I was glad I did, everything was this perfect combination of sweet/savory.
Leftover sesame noodles, sliced black plum, roasted broccoli, black grapes and caprese pasta salad (penne with sundried tomatoes, fresh mozz, pesto).
Soy sauce chicken & egg, soba dressed with the soy sauce mixture.
POST muffins (Parsley Onion Sundried Tomatoes), white bean ziti salad, Sungold cherry tomatoes, and black grapes.
Last of the soy sauce chicken and eggs over soba (chicken taken off the bone and placed on top of the soba).
My type of bento at home! Or “Reinventing the TV Dinner” – hey, the new season of television just started! – more Sungold cherry tomatoes (my favorite), Piave and small pickles, cluster of black grapes, more POST muffins, and a big bowl of simple tortellini soup.
Phew! Yeah, I like to eat. What have you guys been eating at home?
BTW, these photos were all taken using my phone. Pretty nifty right? And I’m cooking my way through my pantry, which explains some of these items being… possibly a little interesting? 😉
