Is it really a bento if all you’ve done is chucked leftovers or a salad in a box? Well as you’ve probably noticed, thats what the majority of my bentos have been recently. So my bento resolution for the new year ( I know I’m rather early) shall be to make more creative bentos. But in the meantime here are some more lazy ones!
Today’s lunch, of leftover Chinese. Sweet and sour chicken and plain chow mein.
Quinoa salad, containing asparagus, picolo cherry tomatoes, sweetcorn and pepper. This made quite a few lunches!
Last two aren’t bentos, this is what I’ve had for breakfast a lot recently! Breakfast burritos, don’t ask me how I rolled this one up, I can only put it down to a miracle! It has turkey bacon, herby scrambled eggs, avocado and cheddar cheese on a white and wheat wrap. Absolutely delicious. I was sad when I ran out of Turkey bacon and wraps. And finally, my awful snapchat picture of toffee and pecan cookies I made as Christmas gifts.
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.
