Shoyu Chicken Wings

Today I have for lunch the shoyu chicken wings that I forgot to take home the other day. I've only got 1 wing and 1 half piece of something else, I'm not sure what, but obviously I took it so that the point count wasn't so high. If my memory serves me correct, these things are like 3 points each so although my lunch looks quite healthy, I estimate it at a hefty 5.5 points. Sad, because that means that today will probably be another maintenance day and not a 5 point diet day. Unless I can restrain myself properly at dinnertime that is!

On the left side I have two slices of tamagoyaki (it's actually dashimaki tamago), the chicken, some sliced avocado, and two small onigiri (1 point). On the right side is my salad which is made out of romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, celery, edamame, cucumbers, and carrot flowers. In the Hello Kitty bowl is some Kraft Free Ranch. Everything is Core except the chicken and rice.

Today was day 8 of preschool for Baby Girl and I am one proud mama to announce that it was the first day she did not cry when we dropped her off. She smiled and went to the attendant and then happily waved to us goodbye. *sniff* *tear* Such a good girl.

We leave for Kona tomorrow and I'm pretty excited about seeing my family again, especially since one of my cousins has never met Buddy before! It'll be our first official family vacation, woot!

Delicious as always! You and Biggie, I have to work my way up to your levels! I ordered some bento cookbooks from amazon, and they're great! I can't wait until I start utilizing them! And I am still planning on going to Shirokiya for that carrot flower slicer...:) I hope you have a great time in Kona!

Be prepared to cringe. The veggie cutters at Shirokiya are a whopping $8.50! Still, it IS a great set. It comes with sakura and daisy shapes in large and small. They also come with rubber tops so that you don't hurt your hand pressing them down.

Can you e-mail me with details on what cookbooks you've bought? So far I only have the Bento Boxes To Go (I think that's what it's called). My email is
