ECO Lunchbox Three-in-One #10

An effort at a composed salad that might as well be known as "tomatoes and eggs on a bed of romaine with yogurt ranch dressing," a stuff-from-the-fridge pasta salad (sugar snap peas, bell peppers, and mayonnaise), some mandarin oranges, and cherries.

Cherries were on sale for $2.00/pound, so you'll be seeing lots of them this week.

3-Tier Bottle Bento #7

Cherries, a stuffed egg, and mozzarella/tomato/cucumber salad.

The salad was this recipe. While perfectly edible, I think I could improve on it; I think basil would make much more sense than tarragon would. But it was pretty!

Pack-a-Snack #44

Applesauce and cookies (I've done this before, I know!) in my small Lunchopolis containers. These are Lu "Digestives," brought over by a friend I had over for tea the night before. They were really lovely.

Temari Rabbit 2-Tier Bento #33

Yellow bell pepper, a cup of yogurt ranch, marinated mushrooms, sugar snap peas, marinated beets, mandarin oranges, and pinwheels of whole wheat tortilla/cream cheese/pepperoni.

Although I didn't mind it, be forewarned: even if you use the plastic divider in your bento box, if you pack marinated mushrooms and marinated beets at the same time, your mushrooms will get bleed over and turn slightly pink by lunch. Don't say I didn't tell you this might happen!

Sakura 3-Tier Bento #27

Marinated beets,  checkerboard of Swiss cheese cubes and black olives, mini "everything" crackers, mandarin oranges, a cup of yogurt ranch dressing, sugar snap peas, and rings of yellow and red bell pepper.
Despite being created from the dregs of my freshly moved pantry, I think this is actually quite pretty!

Temari Rabbit Bento Bowl #7

Marinated beets, mandarin oranges, and leftover pasta salad. It was supposed to have a sprinkling of parmesan on top, because it was a pesto-pepperoni-olive pasta salad, but I was too tired to pay enough attention before it was too late, and it's cheddar. Oh, well. It tasted okay.

A striped salad (bed of romaine, cheddar, carrots, sugar snap peas, and mini red bell pepper), yogurt ranch dressing, applesauce with cranberry relish, mini "everything" crackers, and olive tapenade hummus.
