I should totally be getting ready to leave for work, but I find myself sitting here, posting to the comm....
Maybe I should re-evaluate my priorities? lol.

Once again, nothing snazzy, just a quick something to celebrate the amazingly hot Alaska summer with a co-worker.

Two rolls made with Salami, letuce, and tomato, half an egg, and a mixture of strawberries, blackberries, and brocoli.

Bento # 600

Haha! I managed to time it so that # 600 would be one for ME and not for my kid! Which means I can use both cheese and nori to my hearts content!

So here it is. Another couple of ideas ganked from the new Miyazawa bento book I got yesterday ^_^

Bento # 600
Bento # 600
Rice, decorated with nori and cheese. Tonkatsu with tonkatsu sauce, partially hidden under a few Hello Kitty pasta and a quail egg-chicken. Sugar snaps, cherry tomato, corn cob and green tea mochi.

sharing is fun - and cute!

first bento photo post!

hi all! I have just started exploring the world of bento lunches hands-on (vs. just reading about it or oggling photos) and I am LOVING it. the ones I have made so far that I have managed to snap photos of before high-tailing it to work, I have included here for your enjoyment. behold! my first bento attempts! :D

this was my first attempt at making a cute bento for myself. I made yellow pepper stars to decorate with, there's grilled chicken in the corner, lots of baby tomatoes (mmm!!) and some sliced/chopped bell pepper in the corner.
