Mapo Tofu Bento

It was the strangest thing this morning. Pigs were flying around in the sky in droves! I was confused for a bit, then I realized that they were out because the University of Hawaii announced this morning that Greg McMackin is our new head football coach, meaning that UH… ***UH*** hired someone in 9 days. This my friends, is a miracle!!

The flying pigs make my bento today very fitting because 1) it’s got pork in it and 2) it went flying.

Mapo Tofu Bento

I love my MIL’s mapo tofu because it’s tasty, moist, and not spicy. I added shelled edamame and grated carrot for color so that put together with the pink container, it would make the food look more attractive. Unfortunately, when I took it out to the car, I made the fatal mistake of placing the bento box onto the top of the car where I ALWAYS forget things.

We didn’t hear it fly off so I don’t know where it is, but this box is presumed lost which makes me so sad because it was a wonderfully shaped box and one of my matching Putifresh containers. I’m hoping that it is just sitting nicely in our parking stall at home, but I won’t kid myself. **sigh** I didn’t even figure it out until I got to work. Clearly I accidentally packed my head into my lunch this morning along with the food.

I think to console myself I will have to go down to Marukai and buy myself some new bento goodies. Bwahahaha!

    Yummy! Looks great! I hope you are feeling better now! I have a question about weight watchers if you don’t mind! I was wondering if you actually went into one of their centers to do it, or just did an online plan?

    Hi missnoetic,

    I did online only as I don’t have much free time. I found it worked better for me as I spend a lot of time on the web anyway. They have a really good online tool for documenting what you eat.

    And sorry about your bento box. It was probably in or near your driveway.
