My husband doesn't like it when I make lentils. When I make lentils, it means that the meal will not include meat, something that he craves. However, when I prepare lentils like this, he actually enjoys them (even if he does pretend in his head that its beef he's eating).

I'm taking a slight deviation from my usually up-beat and light posts to write about something that's really been weighing on my heart. I'm feeling a need to purge. No, not physically lose my stomach contents, but to purge some things from my life.

For the past week, my house has been one of total discomfort and nausea. There has truly been a war waged in my house, leaving a trail of laundry that is truly scary. Not-So-Little-Man, Handsome Hubby, and Baby Boy were all sick with a crazy bug that created havoc on their poor digestive systems. Needless to say, I've had to change more diapers, clean up more vomit, and try to force more pedialyte than I'd like to remember. I think Baby Boy had it the worst out of all, poor little guy.

I hate to throw away leftovers. Maybe it was all those years of my mom reminding me of the starving children in Ethiopia that would love to have the portion of my dinner I didn't want to eat. Maybe it's the dollars I see spent on the food being put into the trash. Whatever the reason, it drives me to find new ways to repurpose my leftovers.

Ok, so I've always thought those cute little bento boxes from Japan were adorable. So, I decided to try my hand at it to see what I could do. The result, I've found a creative outlet and I don't have to pull out my sewing machine or paints.
