i promise, promise, promise to update on time this week! you'll be receiving a monday lunch and a wednesday lunch post :)
that being said, here is last wednesday's lunch/afternoon snack bento:
Top left box:
Top right box:
-White rice, leftover from dinner
-Soy sauce packet
-Mixed Greens salad
-My handmade bottle for salad dressing (made from a empty sprinkle jar).
-Green apple slices
-Cup of peanut butter
-Turkey sandwich on wheat
It was a lot of food and I ended up bring the rice & sandwich home with me for later!
I also barely had room in my backpack for the box after a stop by the bookstore for a health book and a math one. I think I will only use this box on days where I know I am going to have a light load to carry to school! :)

Much has changed in my schedule--I quit my job at the call center, mainly, so I briefly neglected this site. Sorry about that! Here is one lonely bento I made as a snack on the way to visit my boyfriend (<3) two weekends ago to help cheer you up! ^_^
-Carrots cut into hearts
-Kiwis, cut using the tutorial from Lunch In A Box
-Little cup filled with Candied Almonds (yum yum yum!)
-Slightly less then half of a homemade cheese pizza.
Overall, I really liked this box--especially the top tier. It was really yummy and totally easy to make before my trip.

I won this box at work for winning caller bingo one week...yey!
-Green apple slices & chedder cheese
-Lime wedges for my water
-Brown rice (oh come on, I'm always going to have it!)
-Baked Tofu (My first attempt...)
- Three Amy's brand spinach feta bites
I tried to make this box "cute" by making a little flag for it because I didn't have any toothpicks like I wanted to originally stick in the carrot wheel stacks....*sigh*
Oh well, I'm excited to eat it tomorrow! >.<

First Bento (made last Monday).
I know the upper left hand little box looks funny, so I'll start with the contents of that one:
-Kettle Corn Mini Rice Cakes (didn't live up to my expectations).
-5 or 6 Milk Duds
- 5 or 6 pieces of dried pineapple
To the right we have peach flavored applesauce (delicious! I was so excited to actually find some up here!)
and in the big box we have:
-Brown rice with bbq tofu (& lots 'o green onions) on top
- Carrot sticks
-Morningstar mini scrambles bites (with spinach and cheese).
This bento was made for last Monday, my first day of school, as I am on campus from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Not too shabby for my first one, especially with the grocery budget I currently have...but I am looking to improve my bento skills as well :-)
Another problem was that I forgot to bring a fork and had to "steal" one from Starbucks on campus...whoops!
