Alright, so it's been nearly a month since I last posted, which is rubbish, I know. However, in that month, I've had a whole myriad (yes, myriad) of misadventures. Part of the slow-down in the posting is due to the fact that I'm one exam from finishing my second year at Uni, and have therefore been studying like a crazy woman.
That doesn't however, mean my diet has gone downhill. In fact, three out of the four weeks I've managed losses, and the other week was a maintain, which I wasn't too worried about. I'm actually quite surprised about this, because I've been holed up in my bedroom most of the time, and therefore haven't had my usual activity level, which might usually just be a whole lot of walking, but it's still something. Likewise, the Kinect workouts haven't been out like they normally would be. However, I suppose there's something to be said for worrying, not that I'm enjoying it, mind you.
However, in the world of cooking, I have actually been trying something new. Having been using the trusty stumbleupon to generally procrastinate, I found myself viewing pictures of bentos, or Japanese lunch boxes. Now, during the summer I will be working in a supermarket whose canteen offers food, but which may not be S/W friendly. Because of this I need to be making lunchboxes, but I need them not to be boring. See how I put two and two together there?
And so here is a practise run attempt, which took around 30 minutes, counting that the sushi rice for the rice balls was already cooked and sat in the refridgerator ready to go.

This one contains the following:
Bottom layer (Top in pic): Boiled rice with syn-free spicy sauce, Tamagoyaki & uncooked sweetcorn
Top layer (Bottom in pic): Soya sauce fried king prawns with spring onion and rice balls, with tuna and some with spring onion.
So basically, a syn free lunch :) As I said, I'm basically trying things right now, but expect more bento-related posts, because I'm enjoy it!
I should also say here a big thank you to my lovely housemate Arsonette who let me use this lovely bento box rather than the lunchbox I was using, and can be see in my flikr photostream.
