bento #83

bento #83, originally uploaded by pinstripe_bindi.

I totally forgot to take a photo as I was making my lunch Sunday night. But I eat the same bento all week, so it doesn't really matter.

Korean-style boneless short ribs with kalbi sauce. Please ignore the icky white congealed fat (since these are leftovers), which will melt after being nuked for a minute.

Rice, with more kalbi sauce.

Frozen edamame, which will also get nuked. I like them warmed up a little if they've been frozen before, I find they're more appetizing that way. (Although I love cold edamame that's never been frozen.)

Apple slices and a couple of madeleines.

Bento # 562

Since this bento is for myself, I could happily use all I wanted such as rice and nori.

This is an adaptation of a bento I saw in "501 bentos" - the original used tobiko, but since I had this lovely green Cavi-Art™ I thought it would be even better for green leaves ^_^

Bento # 562
Bento # 562

Bento #6

I use to never pack lunches, but since I got my bento, I have packed a lunch every day. It's super great.

My bento for today. Pasta with spaghetti sauce, carrots, boiled egg, and some red jello.

bento hiatus

Long time no bento! Was on work travel for two weeks, and the few times I have made bento I have not photographed it. Still making bento lunches, but just no time to do as much documentation. Here are two I did up with leftover hamburger and some lovely fruits just coming in.

A very familiar looking Bento.... Again :)

Today I got the official email notification that our Bento workshop at the AnimeNext convention has been accepted - woohoo! It's a lot of work and $$, but we enjoy it :) We charge a $5 fee, but they get a little bento starter kit to keep and to fill it at the workshop :)

Read more about it on my page (and where I get my boxes etc):

Now on to today's bento!

Yesterday I started walking with my neighbor when she walks her dog. I had to quickly finish this when after I got back as she arrived right after I began packing it :)

May 27 -- Top Tier: Mixed Spring Greens w/ sliced grilled southwestern chicken breast (still leftovers :), carrot flowers and a few grape tomatoes
Bottom Tier: Raspberries, bold chex mix, macaroni salad w/ cheese flowers and an out of place star, edamame and snow pea stems :)

Kat's Bento:

May 27 -- Top Tier: Mixed spring greens, baby carrots, macaroni salad w/ cheese star and corned beef
Bottom Tier: Raspberries, dried kiwi and edamame

Bento #1

Hi, I've been watching this community for a few years now and this is my first post.

Top: orange pepper, onions, mushrooms, ham, sesame seeds

Bottom: boiled egg, jasmine rice and nori ^^

Dorm Bento (not quite) number 7

Home from school for the summer finally but I have to take a summer class so I'm making bento's for that yum!

The top is fresh uncooked mushrooms, a boiled egg shaped like a car, and strawberries. The bottom is whole grain pasta and the container has parmesan cheese. Sorry for the blurry picture!

Afternoon bento

I only had class this afternoon so I used my 1layer box for today, which I absolutely love <3

Left: Mixed salad with some carrot and radish, babybell cheeze, monkey contains yoghurtdressing, tulip dividing wall and a octopus-pick.
Right: Green grapes, some kiwi slices, walnuts and some chocoballs with a whole hazelnut inside <3

Not on the picture is a strawberry shaped bottle with candy powder. (that's what is causing the red glow on front edge of the box)
I'm gonna clean that and try it as a big sauce bottle, hope it works well then I should get more :D

Another post

Another post by my hand, sorry about that. But I didn't foresee that we would have leftovers today that had to be put in a bento.
And I usually make left-over-bento's right after dinner. :)

Top: Dried cranberries, green grapes with picks, bottle of dressing for the coleslaw next to it, and a babybell cheeze with star cutout :) 
Bottom: Very (very O.o) spicy green curry rice,  on top mushrooms and a radish/carrot flower , bean dividing wall, bits of chicken and carrots.

I had to cheer up the color of the rice, since it seemed kinda low on colors without the flower on it. So I used mushrooms to divide the rice form the radish, so my radish won't taste like curry tomorrow x)  (now lets hope that will work ! *lol* )
And I am loving longer daylight for evening pictures! Yay for no flash needed.

More Bears & Rainbow Bread! Bento #41

So I attempted to make rainbow bread again. This time I had enough time to knead all the colors in but...I forgot to add the yeast in so it did not rise like I wanted it to! AHH!! So i made bread sticks instead of the loaf :( The colors are too light tho. It looks like cotton candy >.<

I got the pooh shaped ravioli from Target in the frozen food section :)

More details on this bento here.
Maneki Neko Bento

Bento # 563

One of my first attempts of a real kyaraben, at least when it comes to manga/anime characters (well.. except Totoro I guess)
This time it's Belzenef because my daughter loves him and just made him as a hand puppet the other day. She came down while I was making the bento and was thrilled at the prospect of a Belzenef bento ^_^
(For those who are as ignorant as me in regards to anime/manga, it's a character from "Ouran High School Host Club") HERE is a pic of what he looks like in the anime.

now I just wonder if she'll actually eat him. She's usually not fond of egg sheets, but I didn't know what else to use, when she likes cheese slices even less... *_*

Bento # 563
Bento # 563
Tamagoyaki hidden under a tomato heart. Sugar snaps. Chicken nuggets drizzled with a little tonkatsu sauce. Quick-pasta with peas and cheese (and tomato sauce, hidden under Belzenef which is made of ham, eggplant and egg, coloured brown with a little soy.
