The choice was either fast food, or fend for myself. Since I had already taste tested quite a few cookies today (for our family reunion this weekend), I decided to fend for myself.
Potato salad, hard boiled egg, carrots, Apple, peach. Not pictured: a banana smoothie for dessert.

So this is my accidental bento dinner.
It started with, "hey mom, the ants are back with friends, and guess what, one of them found his way onto this dinner plate..." and ended with throwing out some food and starting over in an antless environment.
So, the bug man gets a call tomorrow. :(

Forgive me? I finally got this Boca chick'n party to taste like something. The first two I ate were like school chicken sandwiches - tasteless on a bun.
Why oh why didnt I think of seasoning? I season everything else!
In fact...I like seasoning a little TOO much ;)
Chick'n patty, broccoli, and half a potato.

We're not going to have our kitchen back until Wednesday night :(
I'm just starting to get used to making lunches without it - but I'll be glad to have an oven again.
Anyway, I'm about to go take my driver's test in half an hour...hopefully tomorrow's lunch will come with good news? Fingers crossed!

Now, here's the test - do 8 megapizels make a difference? My old phone was only 2. (So, I'm thinking yes!)
To see the difference in picture quality, and because I was going into withdrawal, I made a breakfast bento for the first time in a while.
Egg and American Cheese on a mini bagel separated by a granola bar and topped with a strawberry fan.
Anyway, my old phone died a few days ago (internal speaker quit, shut off randomly, got completely unreliable) and so we had to replace it. The camera was an added bonus!

On today's agenda:
Polar Graph Test (Math)
Asia Map Test (History)
Odyssey book X Quiz (English)
This is my What's For Lunch Wednesday post :)

So, not the usual, but still good!
Ceasar salad with broccoli, strawberries and the last market apple.
In other, more disgusting news, I opened my lunchbox after school today to take out the containers and do the usual cleaning, and there was a BUG in it.
Whaaaat?! I am not a bug person. This is what men are for, isn't it? Anyway, I think I screamed like a four year old and then just ran away.
It was kind of scary, it wasn't like a tiny little one or anything either. It was kind of the shape of a lightning bug/firefly but BIGGER and BLACK. Creepy crawly.
How did it get in there anyway?!?
I'm not a bug person. (in case you couldn't tell)

No oven, no stove, no dishwasher, no sink, no counters! - just microwave, fridge, and pantry.
Everything from the drawers got stashed away into boxes that are sitting in our living room. I might go through them this weekend to find some things for lunches next week (not sure when the projected finish is).
It's been fun trying to wrangle up dinner :P

I left my lunchbox in Chemistry, the class I have right before lunch, and by the time I made it back to the classroom the teacher had left and locked his door behind him :(
So I got salad bar @ school instead, and a friend of mine who has that class right AFTER lunch picked it up for me.
Oh well.... at least this can still be my What's for Lunch Wednesday ;)

today's is just a little sidecar - main dish was chips with salsa and a banana for snack (we ran out of apples!!! I eat an apple every day in fifth period.)
In other news, I was upgraded from padded sabre to real sabre - unfortunately, it's rained every day since I got it, so I haven't had a chance to do much spinning. As soon as I hit 'Publish Post,' I'm heading outside to do just that.

- Sliced Red Beet Egg in a Pita
- Fruit Leather flower cut-out
- Tostito's chips with salsa (not pictured)
Today I had my first driver's ed session with one of the gym teachers who runs the program. I get 5 lessons total, and then I can take my driver's test with him (my six months are up April 15th!)
We ended the lesson with parallel parking, something I've never done before, and it was surprising less difficult than I thought it would be. I'm guessing it's harder when you don't have four giant orange cones guiding you.
Hopefully, I'll have my license by the end of April (fingers crossed!)

- Peanut Butter on a tortilla
- red beet egg
- apple (the rest of the apple was my mid-morning snack)
It's starting to become a pattern that my main dish is a plain, tan color, and all of my sides are colorful - and I don't look forward to the 'main dish' hardly ever! I think colorful foods are just more appetizing.
Colorful main-course suggestions?

The problem is a lot of times I see bento where everything's spilling over the top of the container... how do you then close the container and carry off to work/school/etc??
Is it the container I'm using, or is it me? I can't seem to get everything to fit. I put a red beet egg in the taller section, and still had to squish it just to get the lid closed. And then since the container is held together by straps/bands, it doesn't close well and I feel disappointed to find it coming apart by the time I open my lunch box.
I wanted to get a new container to see if it would help, maybe something a teeny bit bigger until I know what I'm doing, but I think maybe it's just me??

- tamagoyaki with a little american cheese inside
- red and green grapes
- granola bar (for desert)
- a piece of toast cut in strips
- Pasta salad (I could eat this 24/7 for a year and still love it.)

It's probably the hundred-somethingth bento in reality, but not everything gets photographed, some get lost in transit (sometimes I don't want people to see how often I really eat cold pizza for lunch), etc.
Without further ado,
Nothing special :]
- Pasta salad with sprinkled cheddar
- red beet egg
- last of the egg rolls
- a little tortilla heart
I eat my salad last instead of first, because I usually set things on top of it and use some of the lettuce as 'decor,' so by the time I got to it today I realized that I had forgotten...salad dressing. And while I can eat lettuce in sandwiches, etc., having it dry in a salad is not my cup of tea.
Luckily, a friend of mine also packed today and she had a WHOLE bottle of ceaser salad dressing with her, and was kind enough to share. (This is the girl whom I've also seen bring a whole bag of chips or box of crackers in her lunchbox rather than use plastic bags or containers.)
So it turned out well!

Navel Orange slices, cherry jello (made from a box), baby carrots, salad, pasta salad (also from a box...huh) almonds and a HOMEMADE RED BEET EGG! :)
Man, have I missed those things.
What a washed out picture! This lunch was much brighter in-person.

On a side note, my Chemistry teacher read The Lorax today in class in honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday/Read Across America day (he planned to do it yesterday, the actual day, but was absent). I wish all of our lessons were that easy.... :)

Strawberries and grapes, cup of pears, lettuce divider, tortilla strips, fried rice (with peas, carrots, broccol, onions) and half a baked egg roll...someone else ate the other half this morning when I wasn't looking! O.0
