Hmm, does this count as bento?
On Thursday night, I went to pick up a block of tofu for my master eggplant plan. (Egg-plan? No... hmm...) As I walked by the refrigerated case, I spotted a container of cold sesame noodles with peanut sauce - considering the freakin' disgustingly humid weather lately, this sounded like an excellent option to beat the heat! So I picked it up for $2.29 - pretty reasonable, right? -
and had myself a pretty delicious, filling, vegetarian, cooling lunch on Friday. Trader Joe's chocolate soy milk in the background, and a cup of water. So, not really a bento...
But for today, I have something super exciting and delicious!
In the left box with dividers is sliced peaches (from a jar I keep in my fridge for just such occasions); the other two sections contain ceviche (leftovers from a restaurant that yes, I will eventually review) that I've doctored to make more to my tastes, including adding a huge bunch more cilantro!
In the right box, no dividers - I just manage to portion things that neatly, haha - sauteed bean sprouts; spicy eggplant tofu dish (that will get its day on Feisty Foodie as well), and white rice.
I can microwave the right box if I want... I may just do that. Can't wait for lunch!!! *squee*
Think outside the lunchbox!!!
