Spaghetti squash, sweet potato fries.

15 May
Apparently, I can blog from my iPhone -.-. I’m going to try blogging shorter posts to try and start writing again. so here goes.
some stuff ive made recently 🙂
I tried spaghetti squash. I would consider it kind of a failure but it was still ok.
I boiled it until soft, about 30 minutes. Scooped out the seeds, shredded out the rest with a fork. I tossed it with a marinara sauce.
What I learned: Drain the shredded “spaghetti” before you use it. It tasted good otherwise. I might try again in a week.
I made a Santa fe turkey sandwich:
Turkey bacon, sliced turkey, cheese, roasted red peppers, lettuce, tomato slice, and chipotle mayo [I think Kraft sells a pre-made one] on a hoagie roll. Pretty good if you’re in the mood for something different.
Served with sweet potato fries, which are awesome! [and orange].  The ones I used were by Ortega and they’re really good. I made them once from sweet potatoes myself but they didn’t turn out nearly as well.
Aaand a BLT with egg.  always excellent.

First Bento!

23 Feb
This will be a short short short entry. Its midterms, and I’ve got a paper due :(. BUT good news! My bento box that I ordered off of iloveobento.com came in the mail today!
So this means that I just prepared my first bento. Its not too cute. And I have to learn how to best utilize space.
The bottom tier has about 5 potato perogies that I sauteed with a frozen veggie mix. The top tier (with the spill-proof lid) has vanilla yogurt and frozen red raspberries.  I figure I’ve got protein, veggies, fruits, and carbs. Seems good to me, we’ll see how it goes 🙂
