The vegan gravy packet wasn’t super great but that’s because I don’t think I followed the instructions quite right. It didn’t thicken up much or have a lot of flavor. I did buy a different version of that particular gravy so after I finish up this pack(and see if I made it properly or not) I’ll give that one a try.
Since I also didn’t know if my family had potatoes for me to… potatonap… I bought a box of instant mashed potatoes. I don’t use potatoes in much else and when I buy fresh ones they go bad way too quickly. The box(which was a couple of bucks) will last me at least a month(they’re easier to make than rice because of time). Pro-tip: Apparently the Food Lion brand is a few calories lower per 1/3 cup serving than ALL the name brands! If you’re trying to watch your calories, this is a good route to go.
Also in the bento are canned peas and Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders. It’s looking a bit like Thanksgiving up in this bento!
Sometime this week I want to make accessories for my cheaper bento box with my 3D printer. What do you think would be a cool idea to modify my box with?
