Busy Springtime!

I didn't have a lot of lunches to make last week as Sassy's school was having BBQ's and farewell lunches for her principal who retired on Friday. Husband is happier with a big sandwich and isn't as enamored with the bento because he train commutes instead of driving and the boxes don't fit in his backback. I do what I can occasionally, but being slightly idle, when given the chance to just make a sandwich and toss in a muffin and bag of chips...I do.

This week was Melbourne Cup Carnival so everything was shut for Monday and Tuesday so the state could enjoy a day at the horse races - isn't that the neatest thing you ever heard? The whole state takes the day off to watch horse racing. Mind boggles. I didn't photo yesterday as it was boring lunches (Truth: I fell off my scooter on Monday and sprained my wrist and it was hard to do much, so sarnies were easy.) and Wednesday is my school day where I'm taking a night course and have limited time for prep. Thursday is the breath of fresh air I need to wind back down and so this morning, I made Sassy a nicer bento lunch. (Feeling much better, but still sore.)

Sassy Bento 05.11.09

Bed of salad leaves from a store bought bag, a pizza-puff pastry that I bought frozen but looks so easy I may just take a Sunday afternoon to batch up a bunch myself - they are puff pastry, ricotta cheese, Italian herbs and a dash of tomato sauce. Very yum. A few chicken goujons which have a mashed potato coating instead of breading - Double Yum!, some cherry tomatoes, sweet corn and carrot sticks.

Hey Livvie!
When you get a chance to try the pizza puff thingies, will you post up the recipe? Those sound really tasty and easy to make, good for bento too!
