Bento Friends Roll Ups Bento

Last night I was feeling down after coming home from a not so great doctor appointment. I wasn't in the mood to do anything but sit on the sofa and feel sorry for myself, but I had to eat something so on my search for some easy to make food I started pulling out things to eat, and got the idea to make a bento.
I was going to pass up on making the bento, but I'm glad I didn't.
Here's what I put together.
It may not be my prettiest bento, and it may not be the cleanest looking, but it made me feel better making it, and it tasted sooo yummy as well.
  • 1/4 Cup 6 Bean Salad (Leftover from our Bridal Shower)
  • 1 Tsp Whole Grain Mustard (To dip the roll ups in)
  • 1 Sm-Med Black Plum
  • 2 Cherries
  • 1 Cherry Tomato
  • Roll Ups (Chicken Hot Dog, Udi's Fiber/Flax Bread warmed and flattened, Lettuce)
To make the roll ups I cooked the hot dog and set it aside. I warmed the bread in the toaster oven then I cut off the crust and rolled it flat with a rolling pin. I rolled the hot dog in the bread and then wrapped that in the lettuce leaves. I sliced it into fourths and put my favorite Bento food picks into each roll up.

I'm glad I decided to make the bento meal even though I wasn't feeling up to it, because it got my mind off of things and put me in a better mood. Plus eating the yummy bento afterwards put a smile on my face.
Does Bento make you Happy?

  1. Bento very much makes me happy - and they're great for really long workdays to give a peaceful feeling of calm. I'm sorry your Dr's appointment didn't go so well. Thinking of you.

  2. I made a bento lunch for myself today for much the same reason. It really did help! It's a healthy way of being kind to ourselves, a reminder of the fact that we should value ourselves enough for nourishing our bodies and our souls. I hope you feel better soon.
