Bentos #57 and #58... When I can't sleep

I haven't been sleeping well lately. I occasionally have these bouts of insomnia that last me a month or so. And I'm 2 weeks in. I'll go to bed and stare at the ceiling for an hour or more before finally falling asleep. And then. Without fail. I'll wake up around 5:30. Or earlier. I'll toss and turn before hopefully falling asleep again an hour later. This gets old.

Yesterday morning I wasn't falling asleep again. So. I rolled out of bed. I did some dishes. I ate a real breakfast. Took a shower twice as long as I usually do... I still had more than an hour to dink around after all of that. So I decided to make something awesome for my lunch.

I made pizza using naan bread for the crust. I made the sauce with a few tomatoes I had in the fridge and topped it with another tomato, mozzarella, Parmesan, bacon, and ham. So good! I may have eaten some right then, just to make sure it was worthy of becoming a bento.

By this time I was running late. So.

I love this strawberry box. I feel like it's huge. And perfect for bulky things. Like pizza. The bottom has pineapple, strawberries, mango, green pepper strips, and a grape.

This looks oddly like yesterday's snack... hmmm. Yeah. We only ended up eating about half of it. So I topped it off this morning. Pineapple, mango, strawberries, grapes, and a cutie orange. Hummus in the sidecar for the Club crackers. And a string cheese. Because I love string cheese.

  1. Yum! That looks like some serious lunch! Very delicious.

    Not sure if it's just me, but the two first photos look stretched vertically. Could be my lousy browser, though. :)
