Roast Beef, Stew & Salad Bento

Another leftover filled bento. This one has a chunk of meat and stew vegetables from my crock pot dinner last night. The salad is a simple mix of greens with some cheese shreds and a little container of garlic infused oil. I love using leftovers in bentos. They save sooo much time in the morning.

The main lunch box contained:
Roast beef
Stew Vegetables including sweet potatoes, onions, carrots, and turnips

The secondary box contained:
Green Salad with cheese and garlic oil
Spiced Gum Drops

Goat Kurma Bento

Leftovers from a trip to our favorite Indian place, Nilgiri's, is the main course for today's bento. I made some fresh rice in the rice cooker and packed a lot in since the lunch is kind of lacking a lot of meat. Also, those seeds are actually chai flavored pumpkin seeds that Jim and I made a few nights before from the guts of our jack-o-lanterns.

The main lunch box contained:
Goat Kurma
Basmati Rice

The secondary box contained:
Aloo Parartha (naan stuffed with mashed potatoes)
Chai Pumpkin Seeds
