Number Ichii!

Can you believe that it is 2011 already? Most people are happy to see 2010 go, but it was a decent enough year in the world of yours truly. However, I'm always hopeful this new year will be going even better. Hope everyone had a safe and happy evening and didn't make any resolutions you can keep. I always keep mine. Always...

But you don't care about that crap. No no, you want to see the damn box, don't you. Well hold your horses, dudes. I'm getting there.

I really wasn't sure what to do for my first box. I knew it had to be awesome, but I also wanted it to be easy. Especially since I was planning it on New Years Eve. I had other things to be doing, dangit. Like playing Super Mario and watching Mythbusters. Important things, people.

New Years Eve is my dear husbands birthday, and so he got to pick what we made for our late night dinner, after I took him out for a late lunch. He wanted hot wings. Sriracha hot wings to be exact. Oh my gosh, these things are
devine! They have an awesome slow burn and yet tons of flavor. Sweet, savory, and spicy all at once. We did end up frying ours, but I'd love to try it the way the recipe states some day. I prefer to dip mine in some buttermilk ranch, but the boy loves his blue cheese.
Aaah, don't those look tasty? But... what to eat with them? I want something that's going to cool down my mouth when I'm eating something so spicy, and I'm not a fan of celery. What is a girl to do?
Carrot sticks! These guys go great in that buttermilk ranch I love so much, and also aid in the cooling down of my mouth, so they are a perfect accompaniment. Chicken and carrots didn't seem like much, but would be surprisingly filling. Still, I felt as if I should have a little more vitamins included in the lunch. So, broccoli and a couple mandarin oranges balance out this tasty bento.

Would this be a lunch you looked forward to, or would you skip out on one or all my choices? Do you think I'm blasphemous for packing hot wings in my bento box, or am I simply imaginative? Let me know!


  1. This looks delicious. I love this idea and I think everything in here looks fantastic! Great idea.

  2. Oh YUM! Definitely tasty. I think the hot wings aspect is awesome.

    This recipe has already been sent to Jesse and I think we'll try them this weekend!
