I feel like all I’m doing lately is apologising for not updating the blog a lot, so once more I’m sorry. Things are very hectic, moved out (although after three months I’ll be moving again lol), trying to find a new job and study online, life is just flying by!

Moving on…LOOK WHAT I GOT!!! Ok, so unless you love SpongeBob, this probably isn’t very cool, but I thought it was awesome, I don’t think it’s going to hold a particularly large amount of food, but oh well. It was £1, how could I possibly resist!! That’s all, very brief I know, I’ll be back properly soon.


Quinoa (failed) bento

Recently I’ve been experimenting with quinoa, I use the term experimenting loosely as so far I’ve only made two dishes and they’ve both been similar. I’m finding it to be a pleasant textured, versatile grain. I first made a quinoa salad, (which regrettably I forgot to take a picture of, which is a same because it looked pretty) it contained cherry tomatoes, red and yellow peppers, asparagus, butternut squash and feta cheese. It was utterly delicious and healthy to boot! Huzzah. So imagine my surprise when I made one similar and it tasted vile, I had to chuck it, couldn’t force it down. This one contained; yellow pepper, cherry tomatoes, sweet corn, avocado and black eyed peas. I think it was the peas that ruined it, but oh well, you win some and you lose some. I packed the bento without trying my new dish ( learnt my lesson there!), and took it to work today, everything else was fine.

Top tier (on left): Blueberries, sliced strawberries, ham and cheese roll ups and a sauce pot containing simple olive oil dressing for salad.

First time I used that sauce pot, it’s really for a thicker sauce, but it held just fine.

I’ve been experimenting with my camera, I quite like this shot! Maybe a photography course would come in handy!
