I completely forgot I was on a no wheat or dairy cleanse while making dinner, and proceeded to boil a big pot of pasta, thinking dinner tonight, and two future bentos for the hubby and me (youngest won’t eat pasta without a tremendous fight that just is not worth it). Hehe – can I blame it on only 14 days left of teaching to go? Or forgetfulness? Or the gingerbread house decorating going on in the kitchen at the same time as dinner/lunchmaking?
Either way… farfalle pasta, tossed while warm with Boursin cheese so that it melts nicely. It’s cooled quite a bit in this picture, but will be nice and smoothly creamy once heated tomorrow. I found some frozen cubed butternut squash, and heated that in the microwave, although it could probably go in frozen, as I plan on reheating this bento tomorrow anyway. A little smoked tofu and Ketchup peppers, but made with locally-made tomato jam (self-proclaimed adult ketchup) round out the tier.
