Temari Rabbit 2-Tier Bento #90

Orange slices, cucumber slices, blackberries, chopped tomatoes, sesame melba toast, and avocado topped with salt and pepper.

This was kind of like a Lunchables lunch--mash the avocado, spread on toast, top with tomatoes and/or cucumber, eat; have fruit for dessert.

Lunchbots Quad #5

Mini stroopwafels, apple slices; a wrap made of apple, peanut butter,granola, and dried cranberries in a tortilla; celery sticks, baby carrots, and a cup of yogurt ranch.

I would not normally put the same food in two places at lunch (apple slices and apple wrap) but I was too weary to bother with variety this time.

Temari Rabbit 2-Tier Bento #89

Bell pepper strips, cucumber half moons, mixed olives, yellow and red tomatoes, brioche toast, and ranch-flavored hummus.

I had this great intent to make my own hummus, and I have a few times, but then there are these hummus sales, and I cave. I'm amazed at how much ranch flavor is in this hummus, despite it not having any dairy in it. (I mean, ranch flavor is basically just buttermilk.) Go figure.

3-Tier Bottle Bento #34

Yogurt with lots of toppings (coconut, mini chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows), applesauce, and granola.

I think I went overboard with the yogurt toppings this morning. However, it did taste good!

Insulated Jar & Sides #23

Mini latkes (not to be confused with tater tots--more on this below); a scramble of egg, Italian sausage, red peppers, and onions; and spinach sauteed with mushrooms and tomatoes.

The mini latkes are a whole lot like tater tots, but they have onions in them, too, so they seem slightly more sophisticated. They go really well with breakfast foods, which you can, of course, eat for lunch.

The only way this could have been a better lunch would have been if this was all rolled up into a burrito.

Pack-a-Snack #76

Crackers and more of the white bean hummus you saw on Monday. I think this works even better as a spread for crackers than with pasta, and a few extra pine nuts are good for more than just a cutesy garnish. I love pine nuts, don't you?
