7 Bento #171 - Turkey Bacon Panini and Snap Peas (Oscar Night Atlanta Gala 2011)

Wednesday, March 2, 2011



Coming off an exciting weekend!  I didn't have a bento for Monday because I didn't make one.  Ella spent Sunday night with her aunt and uncle who made her a yummy lunch and packed her off to school.  My husband and I attended the Oscar Night America charity gala event here in Atlanta, which was exciting.  We got all dolled up and walked a [small] red carpet.  Here's a picture of us as we were dropping E off at my SIL's house.  You have no idea how many pairs of Spanx I'm wearing.




I think all I'm missing is a corsage! It was fun sitting in the big theatre and watching the Academy Awards on a huge screen, enjoying cocktails, perusing the silent auction items and noshing at the hors d'oeuvre table (and might I add, they had a mighty tasty lemon/fennel/rosemary roasted veg tray. Delish.)

About today's bento. Sugar snap peas are back! I haven't seen them in a while. I also haven't had blackberries in some time, but I snagged some of those, as well as mango, pineapple, pears, strawberries, apples, bananas and grapes. Just call it a fruit salad. I'm going to be grilling the pineapple for tonight's dinner with teriyaki chicken.

The bread is something new [to me] from the Costco bakery. They are mini square rolls of chunky whole wheat, the perfect size for little hands (and I guess large ones too, since I packed this exact same lunch for my husband as well, sans cute accessories.)

Bento #171 - Turkey, bacon & cheese on whole wheat, Goldfish crackers, fresh blackberries, fresh sugar snap peas and Vidalia onion dressing.

Thank you, Fennie! We are fortunate to have family very close by, so we are able to take advantage probably more often than we should, but it's so nice!
