Super Simple Salad Bento

I haven’t made a bento in forever!!!

My fridge-freezer broke a few weeks back and due to one reason or another I have been unable to get one.

Sadly I’ve been living off junk which is not only costing a lot it’s not helping my physique in any way.

Luckily the fridge compartment has started to work, in a fashion. So I decided to get some vegetables to combat the weeks of utter junk I have been eating.

Here is the first bento I’ve made in a long time:

Packed in my Easy Lunchbox I have:

• Lettuce
• Cucumber
• Celery
• Radish
• Carrot
• Mushroom
• Cherry tomatoes and a
• Satsuma

It was so simple and easy to do, I promise I’ll do something a little more adventurous soon!

Last easter bento!!

Sadly I didn’t get as many easter bento made as I would’ve liked but that’s just how things go when you’re busy right?

But I did manage to squeeze out one last easter bento!!

easter bento 6

Ok so it didn’t look anything like I had planned….but then again I didn’t really plan. I just sort of had an idea and ran with it!

Packed in my is :

  • Mushroom rice
  • Red pepper and radish flowers
  • Quinoa “easter eggs”
  • Broccoli “bush”
  • Egg “chick” with bunny ears and
  • Bunny Pop tarts

 

If I could do it again I would change the “Chick-pretending-to-be-a-bunny” so he actually looked like a chick!

 

But hey you can’t get it right every time right?

On a more personal and serious note, I will be living on my own for the first time in my life. It’s a scary prospect and unfortunately I will have to start from scratch in regards to furniture etc so I have set up a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising some money so I can buy some furniture. I would appreciate any donations and if you are unable to donate I would greatly appreciate if you could share the link in hopes of spreading the message.

Thank you!!!

Two Easter Bento

Last weekend me and my mum went for a day out in Beverley. I figured I’d make us some bento to eat on the train.

Then I remembered it doesn’t take that long to get from Hull to Beverley on train. We ended up eating the bento on a bench in Beverley but hey.

This was the first time my mum has had a bento-style packed lunch and she seemed to really enjoy it!

Here is the lunch I had:
easter bento 5

And here is my mum’s

easter bento 4

They both contain:
• Teriyaki noodle stir fry
• mixed vegetables
cucumber and carrot tsukemono
• mixed vegetables
• mushrooms
• broccoli
• rabbit shaped eggs
• home made, mini, spicy pasties and
• ham and cheese “Easter” details

I look forward to more bento lunches on days out!

Easter bento #3

Here is my third Easter bento post, I’m really getting back in to making themed bento and I think this will be my biggest streak of themed bento!

I wonder how many I will make before Easter actually passes?

 

Anyway, back to the post, and here it is:
