Chinese Leftovers Bento (135)

So as you all know, I had a very good girl Core lunch yesterday and everything was going quite well and then suddenly, the CHINESE TAKEOUT DINNER OF DOOM struck! Before I saw an article in the paper about the intense calorie content of Chinese cuisine I’d always looked at Chinese food as one of the more healthier types of foods. Now that I know better I get so scared because not only is it full of calories, but it’s so damned good too!

But fear not, I was good. I ate very little noodles and focused on broccoli and ong choi. I ate only until I wasn’t hungry too, rather than stuffing myself until I felt full. So hopefully day 1 is not completely lost. There was a ton of leftovers so I felt obligated to take some. I took all veggies and a little bit of the noodles then added some rice that I cooked this morning. I’ve gone back to my old WW Core breakfast of scrambled eggs with sweet onion, bell pepper, and lean turkey slices and it was nice to be back to eating a hot breakfast again. I’ve been eating cereal every morning for about a month now and at least this way I’m fuller longer and it doesn’t cost very many points.

From left to right I have white rice, broccoli, ong choi, and then the noodles in a cup on the right side. On the bottom layer I have:

This is the last of the shrimp I bought on Sunday. I have to use it up before it goes bad! The cocktail sauce is in the pink Hello Kitty cup. I have more tofu and then some edamame topped with a carrot flower. There’s a little soy sauce bottle for the tofu. 😀

I really really have to find the time to do my Dreamland again. I’ve been working so hard on Allakhazam while at home plus I’ve been trying to do more Pikko Pots updates so that by the time Fan Fest rolls around, I have a nicely updated site to show off. Then there’s my costume and booth work… ugh. I really don’t think I’ll be able to find time to use all my spiffy tools and toys until after Fan Fest. This is just sucking so much of my time.

    I haven’t even had time to bento lately, nevermind anything else. You’re doing better than I am!

    Planning for my daughter’s first birthday, then the party itself. Today, she has to go for her 12 month wellbaby checkup and shots (ouchie!), so that’ll be fun.

    After today, I’m hoping to settle into a normal routine again (for a bit, anyway – we’re moving soon!), and get back to bentos!
