Pack-a-Snack #39

When I was in Vermont, I bought these maple oat biscuits and strawberry rhubarb jam, among other things. I thought, hey, I'll just try these oat biscuit things, and only bought one package.

Buy more than that if you have the chance! I can't find oat biscuits outside New England, apparently, and I so wish I had more...they have a quality that somehow resides between sweet and savory, and goes equally well with both cheese and jam. Now I'll have to settle for ordering Effie's Oatcakes on occasion from Amazon if the cravings get too strong. Or go to Vermont again.

Probably go to Vermont again...

Oh, and the jam is lovely.

Skater Lunch Box #2

Last night I did manage to cook a really lovely salmon filet...and ate it all so I had none leftover for today. So instead I boiled some frozen chicken-cilantro mini wontons, put some soy sauce in a bottle, threw in the leftover broccoli (my appetite apparently didn't have the same impulse to eat all the broccoli), and added a silicone cup of mango chunks for good measure.

This meant I could take the bottle and the mango out for the rest to get a quick zap in the microwave at work with the silicone lid to the Skater box. It worked super well!

Maybe I'll get a grip on myself next week. Maybe not. Maybe it's irrelevant!

Laptop Lunches #257

A month without my trusty Laptop Lunch box? How did that happen!?

Simple salad of romaine, cucumber, tomato, croutons on the side so they don't get soggy, and yogurt ranch dressing (in the cup); a rather redundant caramel-flavored yogurt, orange chunks, and cherries.

Apparently I still don't want to cook.

Temari Rabbit 2-Tier Bento #24

Lettuce and cream cheese tortilla pinwheels, avocado tossed with grape tomato chunks, cherries, a packet of Chinese peanut cakes, and orange slices.

I'm a little resistant to cooking in the evenings this week, it seems, so my lunches are short on leftovers and my dinners are quite weird. Ah, the joys of cooking for one. At least I'm still getting a somewhat reasonable balance in the diet! And fresh cherries are available again, which is pretty exciting.

ECO Lunchbox Three-in-One #5

Tuna salad lettuce wraps, a cup of chocolate covered pomegranate seeds, cherries, water crackers, cucumbers, garlic hummus, baby carrots, and grape tomatoes.

Chicken salad and the like works better for lettuce wraps, but you can't have everything.

Temari Rabbit 2-Tier Bento #23

Couscous salad with avocado, tomato, and leftover pork; orange slices; cherries; and a cup of chocolate-covered pomegranate seeds.

Pork is hard to know how to cook. I'm still not great at it. But this pork chop actually did make a pretty good salad cut up and tossed with other stuff and last night's leftover couscous, so it came out okay.

Pack-a-Snack #38

Snacks are great for those little odds and ends in the fridge: half a stuffed egg (chives mix), the last spinach knish, cheese curds, and a cherry tomato.
