Quick and basic bento for me
Top tier: Tuna salad with cheddar hearts and flowers, club crackers
Bottom tier: black berries, celery, carrots, french onion dip in the cup, and a dango/daifuku/mochi-esque snack.
My boyfriend's bento
Top tier: 1 and 1/4 ham and swiss sandwich with celery and a grape tomato. Mayo in the red cup
Bottom tier: Celery, carrots, grape tomatoes, and cantelope; french onion dip in the yellow cup.
Ok, So, I got my bf the 900ml bento from ichibankanusa.com. Unfortunately, it's too small for him, he's a big guy with a big appetite who eats a few smaller meals a day. I found myself having to pack a separate container/plastic baggy with extra food to keep him satiated, which kinda defeats the purpose of the bento in the first place. Yesterday I managed to stuff 2 sandwiches in the top tier, and it was messy and ugly and hard to eat. I also don't have time to think of the logistics of shoving two sandwiches into a bento. I was at a loss, because I didn't even think a 1000ml bento would do...( Collapse )
