Laptop Lunch #6

Wow. Number 6 already? I found a tin of miniature letter cutters and got a little silly with my Laughing Cow babybel.

Laptop Lunch #6

Clockwise, starting at the top left: Fat-free cottage cheese with bits of oranges and cantaloupe in it. A pile of plum and orange slices. Next is a Laughing Cow Light Babybel on top of spinach on top of orange slices. Last, but not least, is a bunch of cantaloupe balls with plum slices.The theme of this is cozy neighbors. A little of one container is in another container. Did I mention I was in a silly mood?

I started to get the hang of making balls out of my cantaloupe near the end. A few have rind on them. Oops!

WW Core except for the Laughing Cow (1 point). I just had to try these little letter cutters that I found in a drawer. I wanted to do “C” for cheese but it didn’t have “C”! No idea why. So, this is “N” for “NUM!” Also, a little gotcha… I forgot that there is a paper(?) string thing and the cut-out didn’t pop out as easily as I thought it would so had to cut along the edges of the “N.” When I got to work, I peeled off the strips and it put a slash through it making it look like “No N.” Or maybe it’s a “Z”!

Yes. I’m easily amused.

I also discovered that I don’t like orange plus cottage cheese. And the plum was very tangy but was told they’re supposed to be sweet so I’ll try that again. I still really like the combination of spinach and orange.

  1. I’m so envious of your laptop lunches. With each one that you post, my desire to buy one grows. I’m also already a big fan of the flatout wraps… yours looked delish.


  2. Aw! Thank you for the compliments πŸ™‚ It’s funny how I thought I would never get this far with it. “Too much trouble,” I told myself. I have a closet of craft projects that I started and never finished. If you get one, I hope you post pictures πŸ™‚ I’ve also seen people use plastic containers to make Bento-style lunches. Can start there if you don’t wanna buy a Laptop Lunch yet.

    I’m not sure what color to get next. I do know I need at least one more cause washing by hand… bleh. I’m too laz–er, pressed for time.

  3. Buying bento boxes/supplies becomes addicting. I already had two and still couldn’t resist the urge to buy another!

  4. Heh. I know what you mean πŸ™‚ I haven’t purchased more… yet.. but I feel the urge rising!
