Bento II

Just to let you all know, the bento creations are getting a little better. I've figured a system. Rice with a package of Cinnamaroll furikake or bear/fish/elephant shaped onigiri (rice ball). Then I mix and match sausages, egg logs, hard boiled eggs (which can be pressed into the shape of a bear or rabbit), gyoza, mando, or something fried. Then for vegetables I put in soybeans, carrots (flowers or stars), or cucumbers. I throw some of the miffy fishcake in now. G thinks it tastes gross, but she wants it in her bento for the look.

We went to another dollar store and I got some cute animal shaped toothpicks and mini soy sauce bottles. I'm finding that I could spend a lot of money on these bentos. But it's so much fun!


  1. very cute and very impressed. i can see that you are improving. it looks tasty to me. i am terrible at reminding tony to take lunch. so we end up spending way too much money on fast food.

  2. That is so cute. I'm very impressed.

  3. I saw an article about bentos in an old Highlights magazine and it made me think of you. It's something I could really get into, I bet. I'm loving that penguin toothpick to death.

  4. how could you eat something so cute? that's just amazing! whatever happened to the ice cream scooper of mashed potatoes and sloppy joes?
