Bento Lunches for a Boy and a Boo

>> Wednesday, February 27, 2008

I made a couple of fast and easy bento lunches for Boy and Boo - and then I went back to bed :)



1. chunks of sausages and cheese
2. crostini
3. banana muffin
4. grapes
5. orange slices

Aren't those oranges gorgeous? I actually bought them only because they were smaller than the MONSTER sized navels on display - it wasn't until I cut into one that I noticed the little ID sticker and realized we had gourmet citrus on our hands! Oh, just 69 cents a pound too. Don't hate me.

In honor of our "found treasure" I made a salad based on a recipe from Pinch my Salt made of these oranges with jicama and cilantro dressed with a vingrette made from their juice and served it with grilled tuna for dinner last night. It was fantastic! I did have to add a bit of vinegar to the dressing though, probably because of the low acidity of these oranges.

Those look great!

And that's totally something I would do--get up, throw together lunches and go back to bed. I've got it down to a science (and a great light blocking mask for going back to bed in the mornings).

Allison - at least you know something new about me now - I suck at following up on comments. Sorry.

Shannon - I am so totally jealous. Since I only get to do this like, once a decade I haven't had a chance to work out the kinks. And I want a light blocking mask. Cause I would look even more awesome in the mornings if I had one of those!
