[Review - Product] Packed Lunch using “Rubbish Free Lunch Box” [Nude Food Movers]

The baked beans I’ve made the other days turned out to be plenty for the two of us.  The leftover was in my beloved’s packed lunch on the next day coupled with thinly sliced brown breads in this cool container that I’m currently loving.

Speaking about this cool container, it is called the “rubbish free lunchbox” by Smash purchased from Officeworks. I always wish for a bento box type packed lunches. However, tiffin-carrier-like lunch boxes aren’t suitable for my beloved’s work satchel. I needed something that is flatter than a tiffin-carrier, can lie on its side like a book, at the same time, I can section different types of food within the box. Yeah, I can be OCD like that. Remember the tv show Monk? My beloved thought he was my long lost bro, haha!

Maple Syrup Flavoured Homemade Baked Beans

I have moved up one clothing size since I started blogging.

And yes writing a food blog has something to do with my weight increase!

Having said that, another more likely reason could be the age factor – the older one gets, the lower his/her/my (boohoo!) metabolism rate.

Translation: I can no longer eat the way I used to without exercising and my clothing size still stay miraculously stagnant.

Sweetcorn Chowder with Cheesy Toasted Tortillas [from Nigella Express]

Of all the recipe books which I own, my frequently used cookbook has to be Nigella Express. I have attempted a number of its recipes and the ones I have  blogged about happened to be croissants (case in point here and here). After all what’s not love about the flaky, crispy and buttery pastry right?

I’ve been eyeing on the sweetcorns chowder recipe for some time and all it took was one unbearable cold winter’s night (plus a light flu) to try this simple recipe.
