Lunch for Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Today's lunch features one of the mini chicken pot pies I made over the weekend. I will just place it on a paper towel and microwave for a little bit at work.

For today's bento I am using my first bento box I ever purchased. Poor thing hardly ever gets used. But it is what I thought I just had to have when I first started this hobby.

In this bento I have my mini chicken pot, broccoli, boiled egg, ham flowers, carrot flowers, Babybel cheese, apples and grapes.

Lunch for Monday, January 30, 2012

Today's lunch has a mix of leftovers in it. I cooked a chicken Friday night and with what was left I ended up making mini pot pies and chicken salad for my lunch today. I still have a few pies left and my include them in my lunch soon. I can freeze them right?

I'm this bento I have chicken salad with a few pasta leaves on top; a carrot flower, leftover roasted potatoes, broccoli, grape tomatoes, a Babybel cheese, apple, grapes and a strawberry.

Lunch for Thursday, January 26, 2012

Today almost everyone in my department has a lunch & learn scheduled except me & one other. One of the guys has been teasing me about how he will get a free lunch. I told him my lunch would be cuter & better than his. So here is my cuter lunch.

In this bento I have some couscous, a piece of broccoli, a Babybel cheese, ham flowers, carrot flowers, grape tomatoes, apples pieces, grapes, a strawberry & a chicken nugget bear that I made using provolone cheese and stuck her ears on with spaghetti.

I'd say this is much better than something brought in by a vendor. They will probably have pizza or sandwiches at their little lunch & learn. hee hee

Lunch for Wednesday, January 25, 2012

So glad we went to the store. I have fresh veggies and that makes me happy. This bento is so much healthier and lower on calories (361) compared to yesterday's.

In this bento I have salmon broiled with teriyaki sauce, napa cabbage mixed with sea salt & balsamic vinegar, piece of broccoli, carrot flower, veggie gratin cup, grape tomatoes and my ever present Babybel cheese.

I love my Babybel Light cheese. Only 50 calories and it's a yummy treat. I picked up three bags of it yesterday.

Lunch for Tuesday, January 24, 2011

I'm late in posting this since the app I use to post from my phone stopped working all together today. I tried all day long then coughed up some money and paid for one. Ugh.

So this morning if you had looked in my refrigerator you would only see eggs, liquor and not much else. We seriously needed to go shopping. Lucky for me we did that after work. But when I made this bento... It was sad. No fresh veggies.

In this high calorie bento (658!) I have a baked potato, small piece of leftover ribeye steak, leftover baked beans, ginger sauce, grape tomatoes, a cutie orange and a Babybel cheese. This is way more calories than I normally eat. I'll be glad to have a healthier bento for tomorrow.

Lunch for Thursday, January 19, 2011

Today's lunch is Tuesday night dinner leftovers. I made a pork loin stir fry with carrots, onion & instant ramen and egg drop soup and some chicken potstickers. The Kid and I loved it...Mr Man...he said he's had worst meals. He's a more slab of steak with a side of fries type of guy. Which makes it hard for my adventurous food spirit to cope with sometimes.

So luckily I had just enough to put together a lunch.

Along with my stir fry, soup & potsticker I added a Babybel cheese & a brown sugar mochi. Yum!

Lunch, Dinner & drinks for Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Today was a very stressful day so I went to lunch with a good work friend. Strangely enough we went to iHop. I had the Spinach & Mushroom Hashbrown Stack. It was delicious! The spinach & mushrooms were sautéed just right. The favors were great together. I got the egg substitute to make it a bit healthier and I didn't notice a difference.

For dinner I went to Caz's Chowhouse in downtown Tulsa with another really good work friend and some people she use to work with.

I ordered a Caramel Apple Martini. It's so good. I had it last time we went.

For my dinner I had the salmon with their house Spicy Coleslaw and green beans. Very tasty! The salmon was seasoned just right with a little bit of kick. The coleslaw has a definite kick and I love it! The green beans are your basic green beans with bacon. Yet flavorful.

Caz's is a busy place for downtown Tulsa. Service is a little slow but I don't mind that. The drinks are strong and the food is good. Parking is hard to come by but again they are revitalizing downtown.

Lunch for Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Today's lunch is a repeat from last Thursday. More hummus, green bell pepper, grape tomatoes, Babybel cheese, pita and a cutie orange. I could eat this for lunch everyday. Yum!

Lunch for Monday, January 16, 2012

Nothing special for lunch today. Just leftover ham & beans from last nights dinner. I also made my cornbread muffins mini size. I had to grab one for my lunch early because they were disappearing at dinner. And I added a cutie orange.

Lunch for Friday, January 13, 2012

I think I am having some Fri 13th bad luck this morning. I wrote this post previously. Went to view it. Had problems and now it is not showing up. So here is my second attempt and I will try to remember what I wrote the first time.

Today's lunch is more of an adult lunch. I am guilty of making my lunches look like they are for a little kid. I like cute. That's why I do it. But this morning I was running behind. So no picks or anything.

Today's adult lunch has chicken cooked in teriyaki sauce, mung bean sprouts cooked with scrambled egg an soy sauce, a Babybel cheese, grape tomatoes, green bell pepper and a Cutie orange.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Lunch for Thursday, January 12, 2012

For some reason I have been craving hummus. Last night I went to the store and bought some called Supremely Spicy. After licking the spoon this morning while putting together my lunch I can say it is spicy... And delicious!

In this bento I have my Supremely Spicy Hummus, whole wheat pita, green bell pepper, a Light Babybel cheese, grape tomatoes and cutie orange. I can't wait for lunch!

Lunch for Wednesday, January 11, 2012

I apologize for being MIA for so long. It was not my intent. I guess I was in a funk but still that should be no excuse. It was so much easier to grab a frozen diet meal than prepare a lunch. But our intern at work brought his lunch in a Hello Kitty brown paper sack and it reminded me how many HK things I had. So I spent the time last night to prep some meat, put some in the freezer and one in the frig.

This morning I threw it all together. No characters but it's still a meal.

This bento includes chicken cooked in Chili Pepper Sauce, a Cutie Orange, Light Babybel cheese, a grape tomato, soy sauce and a chicken dumpling.
