Bento #12 and #13

So I made some extra california rolls for the BF for tomorrow. He's a lucky boy.

I also included some baby carrots to make it a little bit more of a bento.

This is my lunch for tomorrow. I am super pumped about it.

California rolls, baby carrots and cucumber. I also have a thing of strawberries, but I didn't include a picture of it.

The Last Four Bentos

Yea, I've been quiet a bit—finances have been sketchy at best. But now I have a possible diagnoses of diabetes, and at the very least am pre-diabetic, so I'll be coming back to bento making, but will need to change portions and adjust food groups. Fortunately, most of the time my bentos were pretty close, so these changes will be minimal.

In the mean time, here's the last 4 bentos I made: May 11, 12, 14, and 15.

May 11...
May 11, '09

Bottom Tier: 2 Fig Newtons, Dressing, Shrimp Scampi
Top Tier: Carrot Sticks, Cauliflower, Cheese & Crackers, Plum Sections...might be some Broccoli in there too
Sidecar: Salad

My camera phone foo seems to have abandoned me, so I apologize for the quality of the pictures.

Hopefully I'll be back soon with new bentos since I need them for two things: getting my diet more in line with what it should be and to reduce my portions for the weight loss the doctor has ordered. One piece of good news: the one sushi I found that I like should be okay as long as I eat it in moderation. One piece of depressing news: I'll have to cut down or cut out the sweets and really adjust what I eat as a sweet. For example, the fig newton in that last bento is probably fine, but the Baby Ruth and similar stuff will have to go. Might use them as a reward the last day of the week—do good and I can have a candy.

A quick one - discovered someone hit my car yesterday :( Read more on my blog http://kashmirkat.livejournal.com/

It's been a while

I don't share my bentos as frequently as I used to. Here is a backlog.


For my boyfriend.

Clockwise from bottom left: Chicken nuggets, Texas caviar, chips, salami, cheese, and ketchup for the nuggets

I am very happy that all the good fruit is coming into season right now. The grapes in the third bento were ridiculously good.
