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.
