Daily Bento

12 May

Hi there!

Remember me?

I used to blog here but got lazy and took a bit of a break.

Actually, it was two months which is forever in blogging time.

I’m happy to say that I’m getting back to blogging starting today. I can’t say how often I’ll be posting, but I’ll try not to make it seem like I’ve dropped off the face of the earth again, k?

So… let’s talk lunch.

Pictured above is Cam’s lunch which contains leftovers from last night’s dinner. This has swiftly become her favorite meal. She eats two helpings at dinner and then steals bites from her Daddy’s plate, and asks for another bowl for bedtime snack. So I’d say it’s a winner.

It’s a layer of cooked brown rice, black beans, roasted sweet potatoes that have been tossed in veg oil and taco seasoning, corn and tomato salsa (corn, chopped tomatoes, red onion, green onion, cilantro & lime juice), and a healthy amount of fresh guacamole. Sometimes I add fresh sweet peppers and/or salsa or hot sauce. Just depends on my mood.

I’m not quite sure what to call this mish-mash of food but I can tell you that it’s super easy to prepare. It’s also healthy and delicious so I hope you’ll try it. I know the sweet potatoes seem like a weird addition but it totally works. Especially with a huge dollop of guacamole!

Cam has a small container of guacamole in her lunchbox as well that she can add at the lunch table.

She also has some pound cake and grapes to round out her meal.
