First in a set of less than creative bentos... EL Fudge Cookies, goldfish crackers, and Lady Alice Apple
So..... cuz Dante's AWESOME, we got to go see BON JOVI!!! it was Legen.... wait for it.... DARY. (I've been using a lot of Barney-isms lately...) And since our road trip took us through Chicago, we decided to stop in at Gino's East for some amazing pizza. Chicago-style deep dish with patty-style sausage and load of deliciousness.
Saturday morning, we ordered room service for breakfast. Pricey, but DELICIOUS. Seriously. Dante got Crab Eggs Benedict (Made with jumbo lump crab meat) with seasoned potatoes, which was amazing. As was my apple french toast, which was made with locally-grown apples. Mmmmmm.
Zoo pasta salad with black forest ham and chunks of colby jack cheese, with a fresh strawberry
Spring Mix with dried cranberries, shredded cheddar, raspberry pecan dressing,
and a fresh strawberry
I know there were a few other bentos in there, as well as an AMAZING cheese board that we (I) forgot to photograph (d'oh!). It had, I kid you not, 10 kinds of cheese. Everything from Mango Ginger Stilton to Smoked Gouda, and loads of awesome deliciousness. But no photo. Darn it. You'll just have to trust me that it was awesome.
Anywho... Happy Bentos! Hopefully post again in LESS than 2 weeks this time...
