This weekend my boyfriend and I went to get Chinese take-out for dinner. He also has what basically amounts to a phobia of leftover foods, so I took his vegan-friendly vegetable lo mein leftovers home for myself.
To me, take-out leftovers seldom taste differently whether it’s fresh or a couple days old. Still tastes like an MSG party.
Let’s not use the healthy lunch tag on this post.
This was the bento I made for the earlier half of the week. Granted, I should have taken the photo Sunday as opposed to Wednesday, because it would have looked way fresher and yummier, but here we are with my procrastinating and meal-planning self. I even have to leave for work in 3 minutes. *yanks curtain back into place*
This bento features Morningstar’s vegan chick’n strips with sauteed lima beans and brussel sprouts from the farmer’s market.
I got a new (to me) bento box. The listing said it was in “like-new” condition. When it arrived it had a massive crack down the side and bottom of one tier. I got a refund and went to order a replacement. Then, I stopped and wondered if I could repair it. What glues were food friendly after they dried?
I googled and found out that Crazy Glue is, so I bought a tube of that for a dollar(the sellers let me keep the broken box, no point in paying to ship it back, so I might as well be the one to dispose of it, right? I will note I didn’t think of repairing until after we went through the whole refund process.
Well the crazy glue worked. It’s not the most beautiful repair, but it works. I think this bento will now hold up for some time. I recorded my repair effort, so I’ll be editing a video to show you all how I did it sometime in the near future on my zero-waste Youtube channel.
Anyway, this bento features Gardein, porkless something or another with sauce, and an assortment of produce from last week’s farmer’s market including peppers, brussel sprouts, and onions.
