Lunch and then some (Bento #229)



I have microscope time all day today, which means I won’t be leaving the lab for a good 8-10 hours. So, I needed a bento big enough for lunch and an afternoon snack. To accomplish such a grand feat I broke out a Lunchbots Eco and filled it to the brim with: pan seared tofu with teriyaki sauce, carrots, blueberries, cucumbers, a Babybel cheese, tomatoes, lightly sauteed zucchini, and a hard boiled egg. I have a feeling that I won’t go hungry, lol!

I’ve been having a bit of a hard time with my experiments at school lately, so wish me some luck! :)

Chicken stir-fry bento and some Holiday crafts (Bento #228)



Yesterday was a pretty good day. I got a lot accomplished and, surprisingly, most all of it turned out pretty good! I spent the day finishing some little treats to give away at work and cleaning the house. I even managed to make a tasty chicken stir-fry dinner too!

Today’s bento has leftover stir-fry, a tomato and parmesan salad, blueberries, sugar snaps, carrots, a Babybel cheese, and one giant grape. It had to be a quick and easy lunch because my main focus was making sure the treats were done.



I must have made a thousand chocolate covered pretzels! ^_^ Just kidding! But it was a lot. Each little treat has 6 pretzels and a little paper ornament that I made. I hope everybody likes them!

Happy Bento-ing!

Quick and healthy snack bento (Bento #227)



I decided to make myself a simple and healthy snack bento for tomorrow since my schedule is a little “up in the air”. I packed it in the Lunchbots Pico so I can easily take it on the run. The left side has ham sammy rolls and edamame while the right side has a ton of persimmon slices, half of an egg, and some giant grapes.

Lately, every time I get a spare 30 minutes I’ve been working on some giveaway crafts for the holidays. I got really inspired by all of the gorgeous washi tape at Omiyage. (I got some washi tape and stationary from them. I can’t wait to place another order!!) I’m making some paper ornaments and tags using pretty scrapbooking papers and washi tape. I have to admit, I think washi tape is going to be my newest obsession, lol!

Be forewarned, if I have your address you may get a random letter from me! I can’t wait to use this beautiful stationary :)

The crafting bug has bit me pretty bad this season. Oooh maybe I’ll use this bento as a mid-crafting snack!

Happy Bento-ing!

Flower sammies (Bento #226)



I can’t believe it’s December already! I know everybody says that, but since I spent most of the month of November laying on the couch sick, I am really behind. It’s actually a little comical that I’m still sick, it just won’t go away, lol. I should say that I can’t wait to get caught up at work, but really, I can’t wait to get caught up with blog reading, responding to emails, and talking to all of my twitter friends, lol!

I made this bento for Hubs to take to work tomorrow. It has flower shaped sammies, a Babybel, peppers, carrot sticks, blackberries, brussels sprouts, and raw zucchini slices. I’m also going to send him a little container of ranch dressing to dip the vegees in.

I can’t wait to start checking out everyone’s holiday bentos!
