(taken with my BlackBerry camera) Part of my new couch. Keywee's already decided she loves the couch! She jumped right up and got comfy. It's microvelvet, super plush, and I got an armchair to match as well. Which is wide enough - not quite a "chair and a half" as is the rage right now - but at 5'8, I can still easily tuck my legs up next to me and squish in for some reading; I put it by the window.
My breakfast sandwich yesterday - after the couch came (right on time- they got a nice tip!), I made myself this. Baby bellas, baby spinach, two eggs, and two slices of cheese on a roll. It only looks ginormous because it was lopsided, I swear there isn't much egg on the other side (I wanted to take a nice picture!).
Dinner - my diet has been veggie-poor lately so I'm trying to fix that by eating extra veggies. Plus the baby spinach was about to go bad, and I just bought regular spinach (79c a bunch, gotta love the Asian markets, though I'll have to wash those extra carefully!), so I used it all up - from left to right, steamed Napa cabbage, steamed baby spinach and par-boiled bok choy with a squirt of hoi sin sauce (my mom calls it Chinese ketchup) for flavor.
You didn't think I ate only veggies for dinner did you? Frozen udon cooked in some of the roasted chicken stock from the other day; tossed a sandwich bag of previously frozen chicken curry (frozen with bento in mind, but, hey, why not?) in with it and voila, curry noodles. SO GOOD. I mixed it with some of the broth to thin it out and make it more soupy, which is not a good idea if you're wearing white. I'm just sayin'.
And now, bento: I'm trying out this sandwich box again. We'll see how it goes...
Dinosaur-shaped sandwich (stacked two deep) (same cutter as Lunch in a Box, yup!) with roasted chicken slices, American cheese, and mayo; cucumber salad; homemade pickled Napa cabbage; and steamed Napa cabbage (told you, I'm trying to increase my veggie intake!); chocolate covered peanut butter filled pretzels for gap fillers and as a sweet end to my meal.
And half a Fuji apple on the side as well. I didn't have time so I didn't dip this into acidulated water to prevent browning, but I don't mind, it's just me who's eating it anyway.
On the trying to be healthier note, this is my entry for the Wholesome Lunchbox event!
