Bento 2011

Just so ya’ know, I’m still bento-ing.

Here’s a pic of the first bento of 2011.

Clockwise from left:  ranch dressing, thin-sliced turkey breast, Pringles chips, 
Golden Grahams & Chocolate (my marshmallows went stale–drat!–or this would have been s’mores!), applesawuce, carrots

Want to know more about bentos, or get some truly artistic bento inspiration?  I whole-heartedly recommend a visit to Another Lunch, where Melissa has recently been documenting her own 12 Days of Christmas, bento style.  (Much prettier than my own 12 Days of Embarrassing Moments.)

    I heart bentos! Just bought some new bento containers, because my Ikea ones were too big, and lacked sealing power (sure were pretty, though.) I have been successfully sending home lunch with my kids now 3-4 times a week, which is a HUGE improvement for me. They still insist on eating school lunch on Pizza Fridays. You changed my life with your first bento post!

  2. I love it! I'm so going to "borrow" your idea. Another use for my square silicone cupcake holders! Thanks for sharing!
