Busy Week

It has been a busy week! With Bryan back to work, that means double the bentos to make (hurray!) which has been fun, but not a lot of time for photographs. So you will have to take my word on bentos 62-64. They were simple, but tasty.

But what about 61? (Ask the two of you out there somewhere who have nothing better to do but keep up with my lunches and their respective numbers.) You are in luck. Here it is:

Top tier contains a homemade roll, a brownie my mom-in-law made, and some raisins. The bottom tier has mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, and grilled chicken that my husband marinated in a tomato/basil/garlic mix. Yum!

By the way, does this ever happen to those of you out there with two tier containers?

I had it all ready to go, and then discovered I had packed too much food in the bottom. I managed to squeeze it down and the lunch was no worse for wear when it came time to eat.

That's all for now. Have a great weekend!

Haha yes it happens to me especially when I'm really into whatever is going in the bottom tier and I overzealously pack. I squish sometimes and it'll be almost bursting, haven't leaked yet *crosses fingers* but usually I'm SO stuffed eating that day that I know I SHOULD eat less... =)

Yes yes it does Mer...& even worse, it happens to me with just a single box too!! :0( your bentos; they keep getting better. What is this interesting tomato/garlic/basil marinade...sounds delicious! If I showed my Dh your bentos; I know what he's want for lunch!!

LOL that happens to me sometimes and I had to squish the bottom tier down. You're definitely not the only one! And hey they still taste good :)

omg yes, that happens all the time, and makes me sad when i have to leave something out (or push real hard and squish everything) though sometimes i admit this is a good snacking excuse >.<

Hmm.... a snacking excuse, huh? I admit I'd never viewed it in that light. I will use your advice and look on the bright side next time. :0)
