Greek chicken pita with homemade tzitziki, lettuce & grape tomatoes, and a side of falafel (frozen, from Trader Joe’s).

Trying to eat a little bit healthier after a summer of overindulging, so I made a quick marinade of lemon juice, olive oil and herbs and dumped in some chicken breast cut into strips. We grilled it up and ate them on Greek-style pitas, which I prefer over the kind with a pocket, but I’m fairly certain are more fattening. Oh well. The falafel was bought on a whim after trying a sample but in retrospect, I probably should have skipped it. I think I’d better off buying a mix and frying them fresh.

Now that E is back in school and I have to pack lunches, you’ll probably be seeing more bentos on here, although this may be as fancy as they get. She helped pick out what went into her lunch for the first day, and shockingly, ate pretty much every bit of what I had thought would be way too much food. In fact, she was still munching on the last of the peas when I showed up! I guess they worked up an appetite!
