April Fool’s Bento

2 04 2010

Howdy, readers.

Yesterday, I made a delicious April Fool’s bento box. I also concocted a geeky prank on Chris, by placing a post-it note over the eye of his optical mouse so that when he tried to use his mouse and the cursor didn’t move, he’d think he needed new batteries. And on the post-it note, I wrote, “April Fool’s Chris! Love, Alice.”

However, regarding the obento, I’d made a small taco the day before. It was a hard-shell corn tortilla filled with beef, lettuce and  sour cream. Alongside the taco, I added some rotini (spiraled shaped) pasta and conchiglie (seashell shaped) casserole. For veggies and fruits, I had cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, and a slice of cucumber.

April 1st Bento box (not a joke)

The bento was very good; I ate it all in one sitting. My friends commented how good the bento looked, to which I felt extreme happiness of having made such a delicious bento and one that didn’t include a sandwich! Not that I have anything against my sandwich obento, but it’s nice to have a change.

Chris is surprising me this weekend with my bento box. I’m very excited; I get to take a break from bento box making (not that that’s entirely a good thing; I love making bentos!) and I get to see what scrumptious obento concoction he comes up with. It’s going to be loads of fun!

Today is such a beautiful day outside! I took a nice stroll in the morning and went to one of the university gardens, where I sat and petted Noble, a collie belonging to the Vice President of Student Affairs. Noble was such a peach, either siding up beside me so I would pet him or laying beside my feet. Also, there were some puppies from the animal shelter and a massive throng of students was surrounding four puppies. The puppies seemed a bit overwhelmed but equally delighted in all the attention.

Now, I have to go and eat lunch; I’m starving! Enjoy this beautiful day, everyone!
