Since today was a short day, I only needed a snack-lunch, so I packed some snack mix and a small sandwich made with a sliced Hawaiian roll with some ham and cheese. It’s deconstructed to it would fit in the sandwich box.
I love this set, I found it in a craft store. I purchased the parts separately, hence the monkey bag instead of the matching kitty. It was a bit TOO pink even for me.
And you see, it all fits!
Tomorrow’s lunch is leftover from today’s dinner, stir-fry veggies and meatballs. I don’t like to sauce my food until I eat it, so I packed some soy sauce for when I do.
The rice is nifty, I mixed in just a little Emperor’s or Forbidden black/purple rice, dried mushrooms and a sprinkle of wakame/umeboshi topping before cooking. I love using just a little of the purple rice for a color punch.
I won’t have time to eat breakfast in the morning, so I’ll pack a yogurt as well. I guess it’s time to break in my new plasticware set! I also bring homemade iced tea to drink.
My snack mix is easy to make. I found Goldfish brand snack cookies on sale, but you can use Teddy Grahams, animal cookies, or whatever you like, even cereals.
This particular mix is:
1 part cookies (chocolate chip and cookies & cream)
1 part pretzels
1 part mixed nuts (any kind, or just peanuts)
1 part dried cranberries
You can also use chocolate chips, mini M&M’s, any kind of dried fruit. I like one part each of the different flavors for good mixing.
This mix is nice and filling, not to mention something that I can munch on all day.
