I’ve been a little busy to post about this, but here we are…
This week, I begin a part-time job!! I’m going to be doing post-production editing for Down Gilead Lane from CBH Ministries – editing voice parts, helping in sound design, etc. on a 6 week trial basis. I did a couple of days of training last week, and I loved it!!! I’ve got tons to learn, but it’s a BLAST! 😀
So, I’m getting back into the groove of regular hours, and I also have to get into the habit of packing lunches. Haven’t had to do that for YEARS, since we had a lunch plan at CU. The idea I’m playing with is the concept of the Japanese Bento Box. (If you’ve never heard of a Bento Box, feel free to Google it 😀 )
The idea is a variety of stuff, presented in such a way that it’s both good to eat and good to look at. I think I’ll start with good to eat, and worry about the presentation later.
The other good thing about working from a bento box perspective is that since I’m intending to make everything cold (as opposed to having to heat it that day), I should be able to make my lunches for the week on Monday, and have them ready to go for each day. We’ll see how that comes off, but I think it should work.
So, this week, I’m going to do some cubed chicken with seasonings one day with a side of cold noodles or some flat bread with dipping oil; maybe a ramen frittata with bacon and peas that tastes amazing cold on another, and add some things like veggies, fruit, a goodie like a brownie or a granola bar for a treat. The idea is variety, and balance in the diet, which can only be accomplished by planning ahead. Something I really need to do, so this should be a good thing once I get the hang of it.
But probably no sushi. You gotta draw the line someplace…
