Pictures for this post were lost in a blog shuffle many moons ago. If I ever find them again, I will post them! Sorry for the inconvenience
This past week at work was crazy. Lots of meetings that meant eating out with coworkers and such. I only packed 2 bentos for myself. Both bentos contained what I think of as some of my “go to” bento meals. These are quick & easy to prepare meals that I make when I’m short on time.
Bento #52 includes one of my favorite new go to meals: roasted sweet potato and sausage modified from a recipe that I discovered over at Recipezaar. This bento contains:
- Roasted sweet potato & sausage
- Homemade honey wheat bread
- Cherries, grapes, and carrots (with dipping sauce in container)
- Almond Crush Pocky (my favorite!)
My second to-go bento of the week included lime-basil chicken. This is simply chicken thighs baked in an oven. While baking, I baste the chicken with a lime-basil salad dressing that is way tasty! I then shredded the chicken afterward’s like Feisty Foodie’s kickin’ chicken. Now, I must admit that I had started out baking this chicken to make the Foodie’s chicken. Then, I discovered I was out of BBQ sauce in his house. I don’t know HOW that happened! I’m normally never without the stuff.
Bento #53 contains:
- Shredded Lime-Basil Chicken
- Steamed green beans and carrots
- Cherries, grapes, orange slices
- Almond Crush Pocky
