Bento #247

Not the most inspired bento today, but definitely yummy!
Chili sin carne on a bed of polished spelt, nachos (wrapped in cellophane to keep them dry), corn flowers, cherry tomato, yoghurt in the elephant cup, and a Toblerone.

Bento #246

I did my bento the “wrong way round” today – first I made the food for the bento, then I ate the leftovers for dinner :)
Big box (background): Couscous with chopped parsley, rucola and sundried tomatoes (dressed with some lemon juice and olive oil, salt and pepper)
Small box (foreground): Sliced organic tomato, corncob flowers and fried Halloumi on lettuce.

I’ve been experimenting with different angles on this photo… what do you think?

BF’s box. I think it actually looks better than my box IRL, but it didn’t seem to want to come out on the photo. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

I happened upon a real Farmer’s Market in town today – a proper market with stands that is, with guaranteed real and local farmers. As a bonus, most of them were certified organic. So who can blame me for not being able to resist?
The corn was our dinner today. And the flat green beans and tomatoes are a special bonus – they’re not only organic, but Demeter-type biodynamic. I’ve bought the tomatoes before – they’re just heaven in round, red shape. So curious about those beans though! I’ll definitely write a review when I cook them. Aren’t the purple freckles just lovely?

Bento #245 – fish quiche

Salmon and spinach quiche with a grainy crust, couscous in tomato sauce with onions and raisins, rucola and cherry tomatoes. Olive oil and balsamico vinegar dressing in the bottle. BF gets exactly the same in the other layer. I’m a bit worried that one layer each will be enough food but I stuffed them with rich food in any case!

Bento #244

Fried sliced potatoes, red bell pepper, zucchini and carrot heart cutouts, half a sliced egg and a bottle of pumpkinseed oil for dressing in the box. This is all going to be tossed and make a side salad.
The thermos flask holds cream of pumpkin soup with some pumpkinseed oil and parsley on top.

Bento #243

Sorry about the horrible lighting in this one – I was zoned out on cough syrup in the evening and had to make this in a hurry in the morning, no time to fiddle around with the camera!
Plain onigiri, homegrown cherry tomatoes and a toffee in the big compartment, a mini quiche, broccoli and a carrot heart in the small one.
I was so glad for bento staples in this one – but now I have to restock on all of them! Especially the quiches.
