Awesome, PF.

Tomorrow's bento will be stewed tomatoes and macaroni, blueberries, sauteed string beans, two hard-cooked eggs, and cornbread.

Mmmm.

I have teriyaki Salmon burgers with wild rice blend and pickled tomatoes and spinach.

I found a Milky Way Caramel bar, I froze it and cut it in half for 2 desserts.

Though I would rather have candy, I'll take a peach for a snack.

I do so love chocolate.

Take your peach and make a little bit of chocolate ganache. Melt some chocolate chips in hot milk or cream until smooth. If you keep it out of the refrigerator it will be a good consistency to dip your fruit in it! Fairly healthy and tasty too!

Iím packiní peaches, too!



Soup is potato & celery potage. My dry chicken curry fried rice. Peaches, a couple apricots, slice of smoked gouda, and vanilla greek yogurt. Hint of lime tostitos chips with bottle of Sadieís of New Mexico salsa. Fruit punch gatorade from powder in my thermos. My spork. I always forget to pack a napkin, so Iím thinking of visiting a party supply store for some thematic napkins, maybe Star Wars or something else Iím less likely to forget.

Stone fruits are in season, but the peaches were from can in syrup and the apricots are dried (Everything fresh I picked at a nearby farm about a month ago, Iíve eaten.) New Zealandís winter harvest of apples finally arrived at my grocery last week. Yay! Now, if I could just figure out how to prevent slices of them from oxidizing in my lunch box...

Note to self: pack stuff to trade PrincessFiona for caramel bar.

Well, my lunch is sadly not in a Bento Box....yet. But I am starting to prepare. I have a salad of spinach, fine shaved beef, sprouts, egg, mushrooms and avocado with a Thai dressing. A Peruvian mandarin orange (very sweet and juicy), apple, Greek yoghurt (strawberry I think) and I will get some tea from the Dining Room at Dad's - they are so good there, always offering me something.

LP, the ganache sounds fantastic! I will have to try it!!!! Also, you do not need a Bento box to join the Bento movement! It sounds like you are doing it right already with your lunch.

Spork, I love soups. Yours looks great. It all looks great, but I'm a soup-kinda girl.

PF, you mean to share that chocolate and caramel with MEEEE, rightttt???
