Sakura 3-Tier Bento #27

Rainier cherries, black grapes, raspberries stuffed with white chocolate chips, green grapes, red cherries, banana slices wrapped with peanut butter-spread tortilla, cucumbers, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, and yogurt ranch dressing.

A bit light, but I wasn't terribly hungry, so it worked.

Sakura 3-Tier Bento #26

Red cherries, raspberries stuffed with white chocolate chips, Rainier cherries, some cucumber slices tossed with rice vinegar and sesame seeds, cherry tomatoes, wedges of scallion pancake, a bottle of soy sauce, and marinated tofu.

I have to say, stuffing raspberries with things is really helping me to get used to the taste of them! White chocolate is pretty fun, too. I've tagged this vegan, although I'm not sure my white chocolate chips actually are. It would be very easy to do this lunch as a vegan version, if my white chocolate chips don't actually fit that bill.

Temari Rabbit 2-Tier Bento #31

Rainier cherries, blackberries, green seedless grapes, cut in half, raspberries stuffed with white chocolate chips, rice with some nori crumbled on top, leftover popcorn shrimp, and steamed broccoli.

Otherwise known as: I got to go to the store! And also, fresh Rainier cherries are available! My shopping trips are heavy on the very perishable right now, because of the upcoming move, so I may have overdone it in the produce section, but it made me happy.

Pack-a-Snack #43

Today's snack, in a new 4 oz. container I found somewhere recently, is one of my favorite little simple things: coconut yogurt with chocolate chips.

Laptop Lunches #260

Baby carrots, bell pepper strips, a marinated mushroom, yogurt ranch dressing, blackberries, applesauce, and mini cheese sandwich crackers.

I will be so happy to get to go grocery shopping this weekend! Enjoy yourselves, whatever it is you'll be doing. I have more clearing-out to do, myself.

Traveler's Lunches #3

I know, I know. This is a kind of drastic change of pace. But I went to New York for a business meeting, and didn't pack a lunch. And yet I felt compelled to show this to you, because I visited one of the most intriguing restaurants I've ever been to! It's kind of the same premise as Chipotle--you choose how you want your food presented (this is a "feast," but you can get salads or rice bowls or even a sort of taco thing), and then you choose from different categories of item--only it's Indian food rather than Tex-Mex. You do not see the garlic naan in this shot, but it was really lovely bread. I didn't finish it and wrapped it up and stuck it in my purse, where I promptly forgot about it, so now my purse kind of smells of garlic...but oh, well. The little fishy flag lets you know that I was having fish curry with my "feast." It was a bit on the spicy side even though I asked for it to be mild, and the staff was kind of pushy to get you to leave if you stopped eating for even a nanosecond (hello, New York), but as dining alone in the city goes, it wasn't half bad.

Fruit salad (same stuff as yesterday), ham and dilly bean bundles, garlic hummus, mini cheese sandwich crackers, and baby carrots.
