Breakfast bento!

by spiceaholic on July 8, 2008

Okay I have a small confession to make.

I had no clue what I wanted to pack for tomorrow’s bento. Dinner tonight was a semi-flop and would have looked and tasted nasty as leftovers. I didn’t want to make something new just for lunch. Chances were that I was just going to be nuking something come lunch time tomorrow.

And then I figured if I didn’t have a nice lunch to look forward to then I could at least have a yummy breakfast to start the day off properly.

Breakfast during the week is usually a hurried affair. I seem to take more and more time to get out of bed and get ready so that means I’m usually grabbing something tried and true and quick on the way out to be prepared at the office.

One of my absolute favorites that keeps me satisfied through most of the morning is my breakfast sandwich. It’s quite simple — either a low-calorie bun, light english muffin, or 2 slices of light bread, a turkey or vegetarian breakfast sausage patty, and a slice of Kraft 2% pepperjack cheese – the processed kind. In a perfect world, I also have time to add my secret ingredient: Taco Bell hot sauce. I don’t know what it is about the combo of Kraft 2% pepperjack and Taco Bell hot sauce, but it makes the sandwich. In a more perfect world, I am able to use a toaster oven to toast the bread with the sauce and cheese, nuke the sausage patty and then happily assemble just before eating. Most mornings this doesn’t happen. But I digress.

To make my breakfast even more cheerful looking, I opted for my cute little orange 2-tier bento box. I love the way fruit looks in this set, all vibrant and inviting. Anyway, so we have a ready-to-go breakfast sandwich and some grape tomatoes in the bottom compartment and some strawberries, blueberries, and grapes in the top compartment.

Mmmm, can’t wait for breakfast!

Hey Spicy!

Where in the store do you find the turkey sausage patties?

Hi Merlie!

These particular turkey sausage patties are by Jennie-O and they are usually in the frozen section with the other breakfast sausages. I’ve found them at Publix. The patties are only 60 calories and a decent size.

Anonymní Å™ekl(a)… Příjemný den vÅ¡em,máte nÄ›kdo zkuÅ¡enosti s placatkami 0,05l od Rudolfa Jelínka?Já jsem pÅ™ed nedávnem zakoupil “TÅ™ešňovici” a “HruÅ¡kovici”, abych si udÄ›lal obrázek o kvalitÄ›, ale buď je kvalita tÄ›chto placatek nÄ›kde trochu jinde než kvalita velkých lahví 0,5l nebo stojí produkty Rudolfa Jelínka za starou Belu. Placatky obsahují “pÅ™edkap” Å™edÄ›ný “dokapem” a podle vÅ¡eho bez “jádra”! Výchozí surovina je možná použita, ale proces výroby se trochu zhatil. Kupte si pak velkou láhev!Zdravim.

It is not that Hollywood can't communicate with America. It is that Hollywood hates America, and would not communicate with it if you stuck a gun to its head. The central impulse behind modern "progressiveism" is oikophobia. And Hollywood is dying from it.
