Pineapple and Popcorn

For Monday's lunch, I have a ham and pineapple skewer, green pepper strips, grapes, Triscuit thin crisps (love those!), and chocolate chips.  

Since I have a rather long meeting after school, I wanted to pack a snack.  So, I'm bring popcorn!  Not the pre-packaged-full-of-chemicals microwave stuff, but do-it-yourself microwave popcorn!  I found THE RECIPE this spring on  I was skeptical.  But it really works!!!  I measured 3 TBSP of popcorn and mixed it with 1/2 tsp of olive oil and sprinkled in a little salt.  I put that in the PlanetBox Little Dipper.  I'll dump the oil-coated kernels into the brown bag and keep the bag closed with the toothpick...2 min in the microwave...and...fresh popcorn! 

Added to What's For Lunch Wednesday...tons of great ideas over there!

  1. I am so glad that you posted the pineapple and ham skewer! I love this tasty combo. I'll be sure to link your blog when I use it in a future bento. I also love the popcorn idea!
