Lunch In A Box

Photobucket

Ya, I know, I have been slacking on Bento posts. Well, my bentos have not been exactly interesting. In fact, I feel that they are pale in comparison to Kyaraben bento. Same sentiments were shared by Bento Pet. It is not so much of disappointment that regular bento packers don't get the recognition, at least for me; I was afraid that I would embarass myself for posting uninteresting/sloppy-looking bentos.

I admit that breastfeeding has taken a toll on me. I have to wake up 2 or 3 times a night to feed Ah Boy. This naughty boy will feed and fall asleep, wake up again brawling for milk. I ended up dozing off with him. Morning is always a rush and I would just dump in all the ingredients and stir fry. Sometimes when I open my box, I would go, 'What the heck!'. Ahaha~ It's food anyway and I didn't get a tummyache. But blogging about it? No way!

Anyway, Bento Pet's post is a wake up call for me. I have got to put in more effort! No more excuses. The above was done in a hurry again but was somewhat more presentable. I made pizza and pita bread over the weekend. I had some capsiciums, pineapples, mushrooms and some shredded ham (actually, these are the rind part which I cut away) left in the fridge. I stir fry them together with eggs and filled them up into the pita bread. A good way to make use of leftovers.

Below are some bentos which I have made some time back but too lazy to put it up. They were in my draft box since May! Photobucket

Another bento using leftovers again. The soba noodles and udon are insufficient for a meal, so I just dump them in together.

So if you have been packing bentos and been blogging about it, why not join in the fun? Join Bento Pet's Bento Competition! You might be the winner! Time for me to buck up too!

Ganache2 : No worries! Those funny expressions are actually MSN smileys. Download them and then upload to Photobucket. Use the HTML code to add to your blog.

Edith : No lah. You are my cupcake idol lah.

Octopusmum : I'm flattered! Yup, I nurse my boy lying down but sometimes he wants to be cuddled, so no choice. :p
