I've been watching this community for awhile, trying to figure out WHERE to get a bento box. I'd really like to go into an actual store to look at something instead of "buying blind" off the internet.
I live in Southern California (think San Diego + an hour's drive north), so something around Oceanside/Carlsbad, Ca would be absolutely perfect.
Thanks everyone! (:

Found the store list. Nevermind (:
i know one of the reasons for doing bento is to make things more from scratch, but i also know that quite a few of us use some pre prepared ingredients (pocky, drink mixes, etc)
this is a reminder to read all labels, every time you buy anything. even if you have eaten this same product for YEARS.... as an example : Lipton tea changed the artificial sweetener in their drink straws from Splenda to Nutrasweet without any notice, in fact their webpage still says its Splenda.
This isnt really about the relative merits of any artificial swetener, its mostly the fact that for some of us, a change of ingredients can be lethal. or at least very painful. and apparently they have no rules requiring even "New Formula" on the box or anything.
this is the second time a change form Splenda to Aspartame (which hubby is allergic to) has caught us unannounced. in a product we have used for years.
But I need some help.
Anyone have ideas for what I can do to make rice grey or sliverish in color? I want to make an onigiri for GIR from Invader Zim. I wanna actually make one similar to my icon if I can. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!!
