Last work day of May! Wow this month has flown by and to think I have done at least one bento every single work day. I can't believe it. I hope to improve on my bentos in the coming month. When I look back at the first one I did I can't believe it looks so bad. I have some favorites from last month and some not so favorites. I have learned what I prefer in my bento and what I would rather keep out. I hope to use more leftovers in my bentos by actually cooking a dinner in the evenings. The kid and I tend to just eat whatever we can grab for dinner. But I can proudly say I have lost 8 pounds this last month. That itself makes it worth getting up earlier to make my bento.
For today's lunch I was in the mood for a sandwich. I took a sandwich thin and placed some ham inside and gave my face some green lettuce hair. The eyes are slices of boiled egg with nori accents. I also gave my smiley face sandwich a red pepper nose and sharp cheddar smile. To continue with happy faces I put a half of an apple cut side down with a cheese and clove face and I placed the rest of the sliced boiled egg in there with a nori face. I was thinking this was one "happy meal" then looking at the chunk of red bell pepper with the carrots coming out the top it kind of looks like a McDonalds fry holder and fries. Just a lot healthier.
