First... I made this bento:
It started out nice. A silicone cup of squash and carrots with a small container of italian dressing... A babybel, upon which I used my new Wilton fall cookie cutter... a couple of radishes with an attempt at some decorative cuts (my first try... go easy), and two guava candies.
And then it got kind of sad.
Although I did discover a way to eat sweet potato that I actually enjoy... I boiled and mashed it with a spoonful of plain greek yogurt, salt and pepper. Incredibly tasty... but time was running out. I slapped it into the box, cut a breakfast sausage in half and tossed that in too.
One passably cute layer... one that just looks... sad.
Maybe a little gross.
Although it tasted good.
I ended up eating the sweet potato with carrot slices because I forgot to pack a spoon...
I decided to try again.
This time I added some rosemary to the mashed sweet potato and topped it with an italian cheese blend. I added some zucchini to the layer this time (yum!) and topped it with a sliced up turkey breakfast sausage. And then I used another of my new cookie cutters to cut an oak leaf out of a sweet potato slice. Cute!
And then I realized what time it was.
Why? Why can't I manage my time? Ever?
I shoved carrots into the box, threw in some radishes (no cutesy designs...) and put in a couple of sliced applicots, two guava candies, and italian dressing... which I actually ate with the carrots this time. I think that if you put certain aspects from the two layers together... I did get one awesome bento out of them...
Side note... this is my 100th post! And I have one more giveaway coming up! In the meantime... check out the current giveaway, going on HERE!
