Now that we're stocked back up on some grocery staples, Rob's bento includes his usual salad :)
The bottom tier contains his typical organic lettuce blend with ham, buffalo chicken and provolone pinwheels, grape tomato roses, carrot flowers and a bunny shaped boiled egg :) I still love the shaped boiled eggs. This time I decided to add some black sesame seeds in the impressions of the face to bring them out more. I still haven't gotten more food markers, but last time I used them on egg, Rob said it looked unappetizing, so maybe it's a good thing - lol
Unfortunately, when I put leafy lettuce on the grocery list, I forgot to remind Ahmetia that I did not mean romaine :( Maybe now that we've had this miscommunication twice, we'll remember next time. Oh well, I'll make the best of it :)
I also had put macaroni on the list so I could make more macaroni salad, but Ahmetia thought I meant macaroni salad and bought it premade. It was a different brand than we have ever purchased before and unfortunately isn't very good. And she got a 3 lb tub of it... Rob says he'll eat it anyway (I'm not a big fan of macaroni salad myself, nor would I eat it being that it is not WW friendly...)
Once I had added the macaroni salad into the romain lettuce in the box, I then added the organic baby carrots and the small valentines cupcake cup that I filled with blueberries. In the last of the space, I added 2 clementine segments (one of my favorite fruits, can you tell? lol - I ate the rest) and a single grape.
I then sliced the kamaboko and broke off a piece of dill and added it on top of the macaroni salad.
I also stocked up on some Asian ingredients at the Hong Kong Supermarket in East Brunswick, NJ today, including the purple sweet potatoes that I can't wait to use - I just have to figure out how I want to add them so that Rob will like them! :)
I had the girls and their friend do most of the shopping while I was next door at the DMV renewing my license and registering Kat's 'new' car (pics in post from the other day). I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to do both in about an hour or so :)
I am not at 19 followers - one more and I will need to come up with some sort of contest :) I think the prize may be the bento box shown in this post. I just have to order it! (or get it at Mitsuwa...)
Speaking of bento contests and prizes, Debra over at Hapa Bento is running a contest right now - Hmm, maybe I shouldn't share the news and decrease my own chances of winning ;) Haha :)
