A little bit of everything (Bento #280)
This bento has a little bit of everything: barley, mac ‘n cheese, plum, chicken sausages, ham and chipotle cheddar rolls, and zucchini pasta. Phew! That’s a lot of food! I haven’t used my Lunchbots Eco in a while and I forgot how big it was. I almost didn’t have enough stuff to fill it up.
Hubs’ daughter is heading back home today, so last night I thought I’d treat her to her favorite blue box of mac ‘n cheese. My intellectual side kept screaming “Noooooo! Stop! Don’t eat it!” but the kid in me kept on munching. It even made it into the bento! Sometimes I have no self control.
On the healthier side of things, I made some delicious zucchini! I cut it into tiny little strips and just barely boiled it to make it more flexible. Then tossed it with onions, garlic, and tomatoes that had been sauteing in olive oil. Topped it with some fresh basil, parmesan cheese, and a ton of fresh cracked pepper and it was good. Real good!
I had seen a tweet about zucchini pasta and just winged it when I got home. Luckily it turned out really nice. I think this is my new favorite zucchini recipe. You should try it!
Today is the last day of the Back to School Bento Sale!!! Prices will go back to normal tomorrow.
