new to bento, new to group

Hi, I'm posting for the first time, three bentos I've made. I've done more, but didn't take any pics.
Here we go: my daughter asked for a kitty that was "behind something" so I put the pawprints on the wall with kitty ears up next to the tree and clouds. This pics was taken before the cat stole the salami roses..>.< Yes, it's a kids' frozen dinner container, she eats lunch at home still but wants "real bento"

Next, I made these today, for a party: plain ones have fish sausage inside, pink are Ume filled, the yellow have takuan in them, the flowers on the pink ones, came in the package of plums I bought, I think they are cherry blossoms.

This last one I made for the DH, trying to help him lose weight. However, he picked at all the sides all day and then couldn't get down the rice *facepalm* That's when I told him the sides were to help the rice "go".

Thank you very much!

Bento #165

I have a week off of school before I start summer classes so I've kind of been just relaxing. I finally went grocery shopping and decided I need to get back in the groove of things because school is starting on Monday. So last night at work I had breakfast for dinner (an incredibly lazy bento):

Generic Cheerios
Banana, almonds, hard boiled egg, tomato, plain fat free yogurt over banana slices and cocoa and honey on top

In order to avoid yogurt everywhere, I covered the silicone cup with aluminum foil.


This is the first bento I have ever made for myself! My mom brought me some yummy Vietnamese food so I thought, why not?

This bento is not as decorated or cutesy as the ones I make for my husband because it was for me and I don't really care what my lunch looks like =/

Making bento for someone you love is so much more satisfying!

-Cá Kho Tộ or Vietnamese Claypot Fish
-Jasmine rice
-Thai chili pepper
-mandarin oranges
-Rau muống or Water Spinach

For the Houstonians: I found this box at Dynasty Gift Shop for $20 :)

My first lunch in the wonderful Kids Konserve metal lunch kit, won from a giveaway from Lunch in a Box! I still can't believe I've been so lucky! I was really excited to try it out and I brought it on a trip at the aquarium, this week: I have to say it holds A LOT of food!
