The Bento of Blah


During the summer all that I could see out the living room windows was a stretching canopy of green. Today there is blue sky showing through the tree limbs and bright orange leaves.  Autumn is constantly amazing and inspiring.  Today's bento, however, is a bit on the blah side.  It is dreary and dull compared to yesterday's bentos.  Even with a case of blahs it is healthy and tasty though!

In the bento: A layer of rice underneath the scrambled tofu, green peas and sesame carrots.  In the blue container are chunks of feta, an elephant pick crowns a cherry tomato next to apple chunks and an apple star.

Provolone cheese hearts were cut with a heart shaped cutter.  The nori hearts were punched with a scrapbook punch from Hobby Lobby.

The new kitten has been officially named Midnight, though I usually find myself calling her Little Bit.  She is ever so cute and finally getting used to us.

Not blah at all; I like the striking color contrasts.
And Lil Bit is all kinds of gorgeous! I love the fluffiness. Miss having a little kitten around :)

Love the color composition between the scramble tofu, green peas and sesame carrots.

I agree, Heather, she is gorgeous! It's really hard to get a picture where she doesn't look scared to death, lol.

Thank you, Sheri! It looks a lot better to me today than yesterday - I think I was just sleep deprived, lol. Kittens are so much fun, I had forgotten what they could be like!
