Leftovers make great bentos especially pizza! Sometimes when I am super lazy, I order the school lunch pizza but that costs me about $5 for 1 slice! That is a little painful when I can get a whole pizza for about $10 outside but once in a while for convenience sake, I do it. But if I have a choice, I would avoid it. So if C really wants pizza for lunch, I try to make sure I get a pizza for dinner the night before. That way, we can all enjoy pizza for dinner and still have enough for lunch the next day. For this lunch, I also included carrot sticks, celery sticks and a few gummy bears for a treat. The yellow container contains ranch dressing for the vegetable sticks while the white container contains garlic sauce for the pizza.
Have a great day!!
Yes, it’s artery-clogging and has a zillion calories but it is oh so yummy!! The above is called “The Zach” and it consists of fried chicken, bacon and a fried egg sandwiched between 2 biscuits and then smothered in black pepper tabasco gravy. This is definitely not a biscuit for the faint-hearted. Don’t worry, I don’t ever finish one of these by myself or my doctor would not be happy. We usually get this and something else to be shared among the 3 of us. This dish can be found in one of my favorite restaurant – Serious Biscuit. It’s actually a 2 restaurant in one. Serious Biscuit on the lower level and Serious Pie on the second level. There’s even a Dahlia Workshop at the back where they make all the baked goods for all of Tom Douglas’ restaurants.
Besides the biscuits, we usually order a pizza. My favorite is this – wood-fired pizza topped with soft cooked free range eggs, smoked prosciutto, pecorino sardo and arugula
Sometimes we will get the pizza with sweet fennel sausage, roasted peppers, provolone
The corn & green onion hush puppies are pretty good too!
The kiddo loves the fact that they serve coke in a bottle and root beer float in a mason jar. Always fun!
I love Hawaiian rolls and I usually get them when I make BBQ pulled pork. BBQ pulled pork sliders on Hawaiian rolls are the best. Unfortunately I ran out of BBQ pulled pork before we finished the rolls. So instead of pulled pork slider, I made ham and lettuce sliders for lunch. The size of the Hawaiian roll fits perfectly in the lunch box. Also included in the bento are sweet potato chips, mango slices, pepperjack cheese slices and a chocolate for a treat.
