Tuna Steak and Quinoa Salad Bento

Tuna Steak and Quinoa Salad Bento

I love love looooove tuna steak. It’s the main way I’ll eat my tuna (so far at least). I cannot stand it canned, and sashimi style, actually it tastes beautiful, but I think the sliminess takes some getting used to, and it definitely makes me feel a tad queasy. I’ll have tuna steak with pretty much anything. This was sort of a leftover lunch, as I’d cooked a bunch of it the night before, but ate the tuna with sweet potato wedges instead. Here, my salad contains, the wonderfully versatile quinoa, orange and yellow peppers, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, kale and spinach. It was filling and refreshing! I definitely need to keep cooking like this!
On a completely different note, I moved this weekend! Wooo, everything is still a mess, but now that I’m in my own place I’ll be experimenting a lot more with cooking, so expect more posts!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

London Trip Bento

London Trip Bento

A while back I had a trip to London for work. I knew it was going to be a crazy long day, with a 6 hour round trip and a 7 hour course, so I came prepared and packed a huge lunch in order to keep me going. In my pink Aladdin bento I have, leftover “Zen Special Noodles” and a side cup of humus and carrot sticks. In my purple bento box I have an array of filo pastries from M&S. There’s Chicken and Chorizo empanadas, red pepper and feta roll ups, and halloumi and mint parcels. I thought they were all nice, but my favourite had to be the red pepper and feta. In my clear snack box I’ve got a mix of peaches, melon and strawberries.
