It’s really refreshing to be able to bento regularly again, now that I’m starting a 9-5 summer job tomorrow (well, technically it’s 8:30 – 5:00, but that doesn’t sound as nice). I actually needed to have been in bed about half an hour ago (getting up at 6:30 = not something I’ve done since high school . . . 0.o), but I was so excited about having made a real bento for tomorrow that I just had to post. The rest of the poladroids from spring semester can wait till later.
First, though, here’s an airplane bento from a month or so ago; not job-related, I know. But I took pictures of it then, so I thought I should post it anyway. The theme ended up being “green,” unintentionally. My BF and I had made sushi the night before, and these are the leftover rice and vegetables from our meal. He even had a plastic yogurt spoon that matched my Snapware box!
(Contents: Calrose rice drizzled with a little vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and sesame seeds; cucumber spears, edamame in the pod, avocado slices. Supplemented by the tons of snacks that Southwest Airlines always ply’s its passengers with . . .)
Tomorrow’s lunch (the seaweed was prepackaged and gives off a bit of a strong smell; in retrospect I probably should’ve packed something more “normal” for lunch; I hope my coworkers’ noses aren’t overly offended . . . yay, their first impression of me is going to be “the one with the smelly lunch” >_<)
(Contents: Cold soba noodles and green onions tossed in sesame oil, bottle of soy sauce, sliced beef tongue – made by my grandma!, kelp salad with shredded carrot; In the sidecar: Half a sliced pear; To drink, but not pictured: Apple Sidra; Also not pictured: little snacks to get me through the day – fish and almonds, apple, heart to heart cereal).
