Vegan Mofo 2009: Bento Lunch Flashback

I’m just getting back from an amazing trip to Finland, Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest, where I spent time with Bazu, and finally got to meet lots of PPKers, including Melanie, Celine, Jojo, and Carmen and Joshua, who were kind enough to open up their home to a group of travelers and show us around. I plan on several trip-related posts with fabulous food, but my body and mind are still a little jet-lagged, so I’m digging into the past for today’s post.

Back when I was worked closer to home, I’d sometimes come home for lunch, and my husband and I would enjoy a leisurely lunch on the back patio, weather permitting. I must have made this Bento box thinking he was going in to work early that day, but I remember watching him eat it. In the box are grilled barbecued tofu, roasted potatoes, cherry tomatoes, and grilled zucchini.

Now that I work about an hour from home, I should utilize this laptop lunchbox for my own meals instead of haphazardly throwing random things in my lunch bag at the last minute, as I dash through the door. This lunch was made up of leftovers, and I think the dinner itself took less than an hour to get to the table. It just shows how easy it is to have a healthy (and kind of pretty, I think) meal, even when you’re pressed for time!
