Breakfast & Lunch 1/27/06

Yippee! I received my Laptop Lunchbox in the mail and it is purple! Tomorrow, I will be having Cold Asian Pasta with Peanut Butter Sauce for lunch. The recipe for this Asian pasta salad can be found in the Laptop Lunchbox User Guide. I also packed slices of an orange and cucumber mixed with red bell pepper slices for snacks. I still had a compartment left and decided to pack a breakfast too. I packed a homemade muesli. I mixed oats and chopped dried apricots with a drizzle of honey, a tablespoon or so of apricot perserves and then stirred in enough milk (soy milk is really good too) to moisten the mixture. It needs to be refridgerated overnight. The muesli shown is before it has been refridgerated and therefore has not yet set. This looks like a ton of food, but I am going to try to eat more throughout the day and less at night. Currently, I drink coffee until 1:30pm. Then I had a small broth soup and a roll for lunch. I ate dinner at 8pm. Usually, I eat more at night, but tonight it wasn't too bad (homemade chili and a GoLean bar).

That's cute! I still love that little green bento box, but I do like how the compartments in the Laptop Lunchbox close up. Hmm.

Hi - I wanted to respond to your question about dance. I have never danced in my life - it's a beginngers (for adults) class which makes it so much fun. Funny enough I figure skated competitively for 15 years as a kid, which I think is helping in dance. I would look for an adult class in your area if you want to take it up again - then you won't be with little kids and trust me it's SO much fun!

I still want the green bento box too, but I wanted to start bringing my lunches right away. My friend, also on Glitter, is making me a bento-style bag for the laptop lunch. I picked out the fabric last night. I am really excited!

I love your lunch box. I thought I was at the other girl's blog site until I saw diet porn. I am pro a ton of food as long as it is all low cal. I've been working so much I haven't had time to post, but my diet is going great so far. I think it's the combo of low cal and working day and night. I'll catch up later, maybe monday.

I am actually still hungry. But now I know for next time. It was good!
