Here is my inspiration:
My little cub is just fascinated with my pedaling feet. It's great! He's entertained and I get to watch him be entertained (and watch Harry Potter as well). It's a great situation we have worked out.
Once I get off the bike I'm going to make bento's for tomorrow, since they're back on the daily menu. I've actually made bento's every night this week but I forgot to take pictures except for today's bento.
Top tier- baby carrots, grapes, turkey & havarty cheese sandwich. Bottom tier- Babybel cheese, summer sausage, and Japanese style potato salad. There's also a few pieces of baby arugala underneith for color.
The difference between American and Japanese potato salads is the Japanese style salad uses Kewpie mayo (which is made w/rice vinegar) and has chopped carrots and cucumber. It's a subtle but tasty change. I highly recommend it if you have the opportuntity to make it.
This bento is partially made of leftovers. I couldn't fit full sandwiches in yesterday's bentos so I kept the parts that didn't fit and put them in this one. This was also the very last of the potato salad I made the other day.
As I write this I'm thinking of what to put into tomorrow's bentos. There are strawberries, blueberries and raspberries that I need to eat so those are definitely going in. It's too late to make tamagoyaki (sweet egg omlette) so it'll probably be sandwiches again. PB&J is what I'm leaning towards... Hmm...
I strive to pack the rainbow in my bentos so they are fairly balanced meals. So far that's red, blue, and brown. So I need green and yellow. Salad and hard boiled eggs I think will do the trick. I can boil the egg while making the rest of the meal. Yes I like this plan.
What do you like to pack in your lunches? Do you have a staple item you like to eat a lot? What's a special occasion item you add?
Well looks like Dean is done watching me bike. Time to be done biking. Nite all!
