Chicken Lettuce Wraps Bento (561)

Today I rode my bike to work for the first time and goodness gracious was it a fiasco. I’m sure it would have been worse had I not been walking to work for the last few months, but it was still extremely difficult. The way to work is mostly uphill, so I ended up walking up one hill and biking up the rest. I biked so slow that my front wheel wobbled a lot.

When I finally got to my building, I found that I literally could not lift my leg over my bike to get off. I just stood there for a bit waiting, until finally some other guy rode up and I got off out of embarrassment, thus dropping my keys. Not thinking anything of it, I bent down to get them and my legs buckled and I nearly fell. Walking in was quite the challenge, too!

And I did all of this wearing Buddy’s little Wall-E backpack because I couldn’t find my plain black one and haven’t bought a bag for my bike rack yet. I looked freaking ridiculous. Sheri’s asked for pictures, but until I get myself a regular bag, no! Hopefully no one recognizes me until I do, though a  Wall-E backpack is pretty conspicuous…

Lettuce Wraps Bento

Today I’m bringing back an old lunch favorite of mine using some leftover roasted chicken I made the other night for dinner: chicken lettuce wraps. I have a little tutorial from ages ago here.

The biggest difference here is that I’ve added some cilantro to the bento so that I can eat it with the wraps. I love the taste of cilantro so I couldn’t resist picking some this morning to put in. I packed the same dessert as yesterday, strawberries and blueberries.

The lettuce I used was grown by Mr. Pikko. You can read about our latest yard news here.
