It’s a bento blog today. (So, those of you on Facebook may have seen these pics before.) Plus a word about our weather.
I’ll start with the weather….HOT! Okay, isn’t it May? And isn’t this Vermont? And don’t you think three days of 90 degree temps is a bit much? Well, I sure do. I am meltingly hot. The heat just zaps the energy out of me. Luckily, I am not cranky. (I think it is true, I think NB and dh would concur.) Luckily, we are supposed to have some normal temperatures over the weekend. I. Can’t. Wait.
So, you likely recall my recent bento find. I must say, I am sooo loving my bento. It is great for portion control, but honestly, it is just plain fun to pack and have little bits of good food.
Here’s what I have been packing over the last week or so.
Strawberries, dried cherries, cous cous salad, snap peas, sliced turkey.
Leftover potato salad, snap peas, teddy grahams and sunbutter on cinnamon raisin bread.
Teddy grahams, snap peas, strawberry yogurt, apple slices, peanut butter and one coconut marshmallow (you are right spinner_mom…so yummy!)
Sliced turkey with pepper jack cheese, snap peas, strawberry yogurt, carrot slaw and my HK container with sweet vidalia onion for the slaw.
