I've been quite busy lately so haven't made any bento, but I decided that is no excuse because it doesn't actually take that long. Plus, I didn't have much food for lunch without going to the supermarket, and what I did have fitted well into a bento, so this was an easy option!
Today's bento is white rice with an umeboshi on top (I ate the bento right after making it so I didnt need the umeboshi for keeping the rice fresh, but I thought it looked a bit plain otherwise. With that is just canned sundried tomato and basil flavoured tuna which I warmed in the microwave. The other container has a bed of alfalfa sprouts which you can't really see. On the left are the mini quiches I made ages ago and had in the freezer (the rice was from the freezer too - I make heaps and bag it up), in the penguin is sweet chili sauce, then on the right is just Watties frozen chunky carrot/broccoli/cauliflower mix that I just picked out the broccoli and carrot from and heated them in the microwave.
Because everything except the tuna was frozen all I had to do was heat everything up. This made for a very quick bento.
This works out as five weight watchers points (2.5 for the rice, 1 for the mini quiches, .5 for the sweet chili sauce, 1 for the tuna).
It's my birthday next week so I am going to do some baking for work (I'm thinking of making Cadbury Cream Egg cupcakes, although haven't decided how, maybe like marble cake with chocolate on top - any ideas welcome!) so check back for that if you are into baking too!
