Why am I always behind these days? Oh, a job that starts at 5 a.m., gardening, sewing, keeping up with the local Rose Society, two surgery support group meetings a month, the usual mom stuff....
So anyway...these photos are bento 34 and 35. Not as many bentos lately since I've been racing against the clock and not always getting anything pretty made so those don't get photographed.
The top pink box was for a long day at work and was my 2-layer Hello Kitty box with watermelon chunks on bottom and on top an Egg Beaters 'omelette', red pepper strips, 2 homemade turkey sausage links, one mini cottage cheese waffle, a few blueberries and half a low-fat mozz. cheese stick.
The lower pink box was for lunch: marinated matchstick carrots on lettuce with jicama butterflies, edamame filler and 2 mini black-bean bites from the basic bite recipe on Shelly's blog. http://theworldaccordingtoeggface.blogspot.com/2009/03/sausage-pepper-bites.html
The next picture was simply nonfat cottage cheese atop lettuce, watermelon, strawberries and a few skewers of mozz. chunks and red grapes.
With shortened work days I've mostly been taking a mixture of 0% Fage Greek yogurt (1/2 cup), a packet of Splenda, some berries or a teaspoon of sugar-free jam and a small container of cereal to add crunch. Pretty basic and boring but filling and tasty. Just not very photo-worthy after I've already photographed it before.
The beautiful gold spoon is a gift from Sharon in my local support group. The rose on top is soooooo Molly! Thank you, Sharon!!!
