Lunch for Thursday, February 23, 2012

For today's lunch I cooked a veggie gratin cup, some white rice with portabella mushrooms, two tempura shrimp, broccoli, a mini sweet pepper and grape tomatoes.

I have not been happy with my pictures lately. I'm not sure what I am doing different but they look strange.

Lunch for Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Last night I made Red Velvet Cupcakes and heart shaped Valentine Cookies.  My red velvet cookies came from a box.  I feel like I cheated. But I did make the candy hearts the are on top.  The Valentine cookies did not transport too well to work and got smashed.  Not all were bad but at least a few.

Today's Valentine lunch has white rice, red beans, shrimp, broccoli, mini sweet pepper, Babybel cheese, cherry tomatoes and some wasabi mayo I made.

Happy Valentine's Day friends!

Lunch for Thursday, February 9, 2012

Today's lunch was something simple.  I made small heart shaped peanut butter filled sandwiches using just two sizes of cutters.  I used the bigger cutter to cut the bread and a slightly smaller one turned upside down to smash the edges and seal the peanut butter in.  I also made a tamagoyaki which I have not made in forever.  I actually cooked it a little bit too long but it will still taste good.  And for the rest I have my Babybel cheese with a heart cut out, green bell pepper, broccoli, some ranch dressing for the veggies in the small container, a cutie orange with a heart cut in it, a small slice of apple, a few grapes and a thermos of light soy milk.  Can't have a peanut butter sandwich without milk.

Today's lunch has some leftover soup/pasta thing I threw together last night with beef broth, ground beef, carrots, potatoes, noodles, bell pepper, onion and canned tomato.  It was been cold and drizzly here and that is what sounded good.  Also I have my Babybel cheese, bell pepper, cutie orange, broccoli, apple and grapes.

Lunch for Tuesday, February 7, 2012

For lunch today I have chicken thigh that was cooked in soy sauce and mirin placed on top of some napa cabbage, heart shaped rice, a Babybel cheese, broccoli, green bell pepper, some ranch dressing and a cutie orange.  Simple and quick.

Lunch for Monday, February 6, 2012

Last night I was craving shrimp and I remembered I had a bottle of the Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey in the refrigerator.  So I marinated the shrimp in the Whiskey while I made some white rice and gather all of the ingredients I was going to use.  After my skillet was hot I poured in the shrimp and the whiskey into the skillet.  Then I added some honey, bell pepper and sprinkled the shrimp with Chinese Five Spice and sea salt.  I let it cook until the Whiskey mixture was reduced and the shrimp was done.  This did not take long at all.  Yum Yum it was very tasty.

For lunch today I was still craving shrimp so I cooked some like Izumi aka Babykins did here.  It was very easy and quick.  Also in this bento I have some white rice that I added white and black sesame seeds to along with some dill.  It smelled so good while I was mixing it up.  I can't wait to eat it at lunch.  And in this box I have green bell pepper, my Babybel cheese, broccoli, a Cutie orange, red grapes and some provolone hearts with a carrot center in one.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Lunch for Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Lunch for today is more leftovers. We had spaghetti for dinner and they left just a little bit in the pan. So I saved it for my lunch. I added a little chicken nugget chick with a party hat in the lower left.  It's kind of hard to see but it's there. 

In this bento I have my spaghetti, chickie chicken nugget, broccoli, bell pepper, Babybel cheese, orange, apples & grapes.

There will be no bento lunch tomorrow since my department is going out to lunch to celebrate Groundhog Day. Which just happens to fall on my birthday.  :-)
