Getting ready for a week of lunches.
Yesterday I realized we were pretty much out of food for bentos. I sauteed two chicken breasts, one for dinner and one for bento. While that was cooking I boiled the last of our dry ravioli from Costco. I tossed the hot ravioli with a little butter, and Parmesan cheese. Delicious cold! Instead of draining the water in a strainer I scooped the pasta out and left the water to reuse for potatoes. Once the potatoes were cooked I tossed them with more Parmesan (hubs eats anything with cheese) basil, oregano, and a little pepper. Once the water had cooled it went to my lavender, starch for the plant! We are still out of fresh vegetables and easily packed fruit. Off to the grocery store!
