St. Patrick's Day Fare

Last night, I wasn't feeling very "into" cooking dinner. You know that mood, where you wonder why the food can't just get up and cook itself? I told Bryan we were going to just have chicken and rice. As I left the office to head to the kitchen, he said,

"Ok, but I think the rice should be green."

Suddenly, supper was fun. Here is a picture of our St. Patty's Day meal:

It is the little things that make our lives fun and interesting. Do something surprising to dress up a meal for your loved one today. It only takes a moment, and it will make a memory!

Monochromatic Breakfast

You know how healthy food is supposed to be an array of beautiful, fresh colors?


Steel cut oats and chai tea with soy milk should be healthy right? So how come my breakfast is all the same color?

Slow Cookin' Goodness

I confess, I love my crock pot.

Whether I'm fixing a roast and potatoes...

or just turning simple ingredients into a simmering soup...

I just can't go wrong.

What is your favorite thing to slow cook?

It's a Wrap?

Today for lunch I had the great idea that I was going to make myself a wrap. My co-worker, Vicki, is always bringing wraps to eat at work, and they always looks so tasty and healthy, that I thought I would give it a try. Here is my wrap before adding the lettuce:


  • toasted flour tortilla
  • Miracle Whip, honey mustard, salt & pepper
  • turkey
  • tomato
  • olives
Then I added the lettuce and attempted to roll it up. This is what I ended up with:

I could barely cram it into my bento box and get the lid on! I ate it like a big taco, because I never could get it to wrap up right. (I guess there was too much filling.)

Do you ever make wraps for lunch? If so, what is your secret? And what do you like to fill them with?

Happy Bento!
