Oven Baked Chicken Bento (173)

It’s been raining here on Oahu almost non-stop for like a week or two, which was rather strange until we went to pick up my niece from school and saw that the Punahou Carnival was setting up shop. It’s a local joke that whenever the Punahou Carnival comes around, it just rains and rains.

I find myself constantly hungry lately and so I need to make a habit of bringing in more healthy snacks to last me throughout the day so that I don’t end up snacking on things from the vending machine like I am right now. !! I know…

I had to do some research on Weight Watchers for work and found that for Hawaii residents on HMSA or Kaiser, they are running a special where the registration fee is waived and you can get vouchers to pay for meetings. If you’ve ever thought about joining, now is a great time! The offer is valid until February 24th. Check it out here! I’m not getting paid for linking that, I just thought it’s an awesome deal and since WW worked so well for me of course I’m glad to refer people to the program. 🙂


Today I have oven baked chicken for lunch. It’s probably rather hefty in points because of the butter and thigh and crust, but it is really yummy and there was a lot left last night since the kids ate chicken long rice for dinner, so I felt bad and took a piece. I made the carrot flower because last night I was trying to think of a way to arrange the baby carrot sticks nicely and a flower came to mind. It looked a lot nicer arranged on the cutting board, but I can’t make the chicken thigh any flatter. I had no idea what to fill the side with since I forgot to take salad, so I peeled orange slices. In hindsight, I probably should have added some foil underneath so that the juice didn’t run into my chicken.

I also brought a cup of grapefruit and the corn chowder from two days ago to help fill up the rest of the day. Today we did push-ups and dips, but as I mentioned before, my arms are weak so I didn’t do very many. I’ll probably do my squats and lunges at home tonight.

    Hey, are you doing crossfit at the office? My boss started this awhile ago & she is in great shape. I love your new Totoro box, I got the same one…mostly packing bentos for my daughter until I start working again…

    No, I don’t know what that is. We are just doing some exercises that this lady that just joined our staff is having us do.

    I love the Totoro box too! Glad to hear you have one too. 🙂

    Great work – your pictures and descriptions are inviting – still working on how I can make my bentos look better and more exciting – Where do you find the items you pack your food in – in Hawaii? I’ll be visiting in the next month and would like to know where to hone in to look for the boxes and other items – please respond on your blog – thank you

    You can go down to the Marukai 99 cent store at Ward or Windward Mall. You don’t need a membership to shop there and they have a lot of bento accessories.
