So tomorrow I'm taking leftover pasta to work. Filling, tasty, but visually pretty boring. It could also do with some more vegetables, from a nutritional perspective.
Given that it's leftovers, I had a bit of time to play around with it. I blanched some broccoli - I just boil the jug and pour the water over some broccoli florets and let them sit for a few minutes while I'm doing other things. The snow peas are nyummy raw, and the mung beans are just sprinkled over there.
I have no idea why my husband thought it would be a good idea to buy mung beans, but it turns out I like them. =)
Instead of using one of my bento boxes, I used this lunch box I bought today. I'm a sucker for lunch boxes in general. Anyway this one might be of interest to Australians or New Zealanders (given that I bought it in Australia, and it's made in NZ) - it's a 'Klipo', made by Sistema, and it's dirt cheap. This one is 675ml, so a good sized lunch, and it was under $4. I also bought a 200ml one for sides and snacks and toddler bento, and it was $2. I got mine at KMart, but there are probably other stockists around - Sistema stuff is pretty widespread.( Collapse )
