Okee, niet iedere bento kan een schoonheidsprijs winnen ;) Ik moest vandaag weer aan het werk en had gisteravond opeens veel meer voor te bereiden dan verwacht… Bovendien is onze koelkast door de vakantie wat slecht uitgerust qua veggies en restjes. Bento #53 werd dus niet meer dan dit.
- plakjes radijs en augurk
- SkyFlakes crackers (verstopt)
- geroosterde amandelen met mediterrane kruiden (uit Madeira)
- mijn laatste geitenkaas babybel uit Frankrijk
- basilicum en mini pruimtomaatjes
- ontbijtkoekboompjes en honing voor erbij
Goed smaken deed het toch wel! :))
Thursday and Friday were moving days at the office. For me, Friday was the first day in the new building. I brought a bento with side dishes since I didn’t know yet how hungry I would be from all the hard labour, nor if I would be able to buy any food in or near the office site (it’s not located near town anymore). But there seems to be a canteen that I can go check out next week.
- corn with several herbs
- boiled egg
- pine nuts and sun-dried tomato for the pasta salad side dish
- again a container of humus and mojo Palermo with capers (I am almost out of the mojo that my mother in law brought us from La Palma)
- mini crackers and bounty
- salt & pepper for the egg
- sesame nibbles
- nut mix
- and two pickles rolled in fake meat slice.
On the side some yogurt with prune jelly (homemade by my mother in law).
Contents of Thursday November 8′s bento:
- stir-fried spinach with corn and sesame
- pasta salad
- dried cranberries and bilberries
- mustard cheese cubes
- yoghurt coated dried apricots
- sesame nibbles
- smoked almonds
- small crackers
- a light coke
- and a smint for a fresh breath afterwards.
Notice the nuts, fruits and seeds theme?
So here’s the bento I took yesterday on my first day back to work. I tried to extend my holiday spirit by taking tabbouleh salad, fresh mint for tea and a mix of nuts that came all the way from Cappadocia in Turkey: roasted chick peas, apricot seeds and almonds coated in honey and sesame seeds. Yummy! I also added some dried cranberries.
But I took some other stuff as well: a La vache qui rit cheese wedge, cherry tomatoes, Japanese peas and kiwi (peeled and sliced in the morning) with some lemon juice on the side.
Another way of keeping my holiday near is reading Dance with Death by Barbara Nadel. It’s a thriller set in Cappadocia and I bought it on site ;) Thankfully we didn’t find any dead bodies in the caves we visited!
