Leftover Noodles

wp-1479125073918.jpg

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.

Eat Your Greens

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.

It was a light week this time around, but I was pleasantly surprised with the high quality of all the bento in the tag.

Top 5 Vegan Bento of the Week

I had a hard time with picking out some of these. A lot of the best looking ones are veterans in the bento making game but after looking at my blog this week, I became nostalgic; one of these bento is totally how I was when I was new to the art form. I wasn’t great at cooking(still need to grow a lot) presentation of the food itself, let alone at taking photographs. I am excited to see this person grow at food prep, I think they show promise.

All yummy looking!

 

Today's lunch for Olivia was this bento I made. (I just ate all the leftovers didn't fit in the bento box and that was my lunch😁) Sandwich, broccoli, grapes, cherry tomatoes and cubed tempeh bacons. これが出来上がったお弁当。 (私のお昼は弁当箱に収まらなかった残り物でした) サンドイッチ、ブロッコリー、ぶどう、ミニトマト、ベーコン味テンペ。 あまりこういうのやらないから詰め方がよく分からない😆 お昼ごはんをたまにお弁当にして少し練習しよう😖 #vegan#plantbased#japanesevegan#foodphotography#foodstyling#f52grams#foodpic#w7foods#ヴィーガン#ビーガン#ベジタリアン#菜食#おうちごはん#デリスタグラマー#lunch#bento#tempeh#miffy#japanese#japan#playdate#お昼ごはん#弁当#アメリカ生活#テンペ#veganbento#kidslunch#ヴィーガン弁当#vegankid

Tofu and Rice

I have been quite busy for the past few weeks, working on quite a bit of school stuff. I really need to stop saying hello to people I know, I keep getting caught up in conversations which eat away at the time I have to work on projects.

Well anyway, this was one of my moves at getting ahead of schedule. I wasn’t sure what I’d be doing last Wednesday, but I doubted I’d have enough time to cook much of anything, so I thought about what would hold up in the fridge to the microwave through lunchtime Friday. I ended up frying up tofu and making some rice. I’ve found that hot sauce helps keep things from wanting to grow. Like mold and such, not that I think this was entirely necessary since it wasn’t going to outlast the workweek, but still.

No produce, boo, hoo, I know. But I’m making up for it this week!
