Sunset over my sandwich...

Bottom: Three little half moon sandwiches (made from one slice of bread sliced in half (halving the thickness, not the length) ) Sundried tomato and basil chicken breast lunch meat, mayo, mustard. The sunset sky is made with mashed sweet potato (separated into 3 parts and colored two of them). The darker part was supposed to be more purple but turned out kinda green instead from the yellow in the sweet potato. A light sprinkle of parmesan on the dark part for star effect. Sun is made from orange bell pepper and colby cheese. Trees are dill and parsly.

Top: 3 more little half moon sandwiches. A pile of orange pepper stars. Needed more protein so I threw in 3 rolls of the lunchmeat and cheese. And edamame for filler. :)

Now to go eat it! ^_^

Lunch Box 644: I'm not dead yet.

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted. This is due to 1) my vacation, which was my birthday present to myself, and 2) being overloaded in real life and not having much energy for cooking. I've been packing bento lunches, but they haven't been interesting enough to blog about. I'm working on some new stuff that ought to be worth posting, though.

Anyway! Here I have a boiled egg - wow, I'm starting right back in with the fancy cookin', ain't I? - simmered shiitake mushrooms, baked Japanese sweet potato, steamed broccoli, and a banana bread muffin. By the way, I made a dozen of these things and brought the other 10 in to the office. (Had to test one beforehand to make sure it wasn't poisonous. You know how it is.) It's gratifying when goodies disappear as fast as these did.

This is kinda late, but I did this for BentoChallenge's "Make It Look Like Candy Challenge."

I was running kinda low on groceries...wish I had some fruit!

I love this pasta, but when I boiled it, the ribbons all broke into little pieces! I did my best to pick out the ones that were still intact and placed them on top to cover up the broken ones. I followed the directions and boiled them for 12 minutes...WHAT DID I DO WRONG??

More details on what is what and pasta recipe here.


Bento Box #48

Contents: potato salad in the bigger container, kiwi and banana slices, halved cherry tomatoes and the remaining half of the hard-boiled egg.

Tasty, quick and simple, I've only boiled the egg and chopped the fruit/vegs for that one, everything else was leftover from yesterday's dinner. <3
