Nope, no bento today.
I'm trying to find a balance here, between work, school and packing myself food. It's been a little wonky because:
- I don't always need two bentos on days I go to school. In fact, only on Mondays do I need two (lunch & dinner).
- This is because on Tuesdays, I have phys ed class (it's part of the curriculum; please stop laughing!), so yesterday I ate some banana chips and some nuts. That's probably what I'll be doing from now on in lieu of dinner on Tuesday nights, so no dinner bento.
- On Wednesdays, I take a late lunch hour and go to the gym to run. Today I ate an orange, banana chips, and nuts (and feel super full... ugh)... no lunch bento on these days.
Yesterday, I decided I didn't want to eat a lunch made of what was in the fridge (a rarity, but it happens), so I planned on trying this new restaurant near my office, which I did. That translates to no bentos for yesterday. Also yesterday, I decided that before class tonight, I want to eat at this restaurant near my school, which translates to no bentos for today.
Yes, a little odd.
Tomorrow and Friday I won't be at work; tomorrow simply because I can, and Friday because I will be attending NY ComiCon all weekend. So no bentos for the rest of the week! I didn't mean to abandon you guys, I just kind of shifted things around this week. Sorry!!! I'm still here and I'm alive, struggling to juggle everything in my life right now... it's a bit difficult, but it'll happen, I just need to breathe and let time run its course. Things'll sort themselves out, right? Right!
Here's another photo of my basil and random green onion patch. Basil's doing pretty well but you should see the basil I accidentally gave my mother - two small plants that are now about 8-10" tall each and have leaves that are 3-4" long. None of mine grow that large! Craziness! The green onions just keep sprouting; they die after I cut off the new growth but still! I've extended the life of my green onions so much! :)
I saw this when I was on the bus last night; it's hard to read but it says "S & M PHARMACY" and underneath "WE FLAVOR KID'S MEDICINE" which really disturbs me. Am I sick or is the sign just wrong?! Gross!
I will be back on Monday with two bentos! Until then, happy eating and reading! (The Feisty Foodie will continue to be updated, so pop on over there for some good eats!)
