Bento # 614

A little better than yesterday, but still not really up to par. Not sure why. I look in my bento books and see lots of ideas.. but for whatever reason I just fail in getting them executed.

But at least it's tasty, right? *L*

Bento # 614

From Lurker to Poster

Hi all! I joined this comm over the summer and with school starting soon (like, this Thursday), I thought I'd finally start posting since I plan on using bentos for my lunches this year.

Now, I have to go food shopping tomorrow and I was wondering if anyone has had bento staples they could suggest. I plan on looking for some good rice and nori to attempt my own rolls.

Thanks all!

Daughter's first day of school bento

My baby is in the first grade this year, and eating lunch at school. She requested sushi for her first lunch! That's my girl!

Sushi with fake crab, cuke and carrot, oyster sauce chicken, broccoli, tomatoes and cukes, plus two gummies. Cut up peach not pictured.

Hubby's bento, sushi, deviled chicken, cilatro shrimps, tomatoes and cukes. Banana and snack mix not pictured.

"no-food-in-the-house" bento, originally uploaded by G uillotine.

boring bento for tomorrow.
premade tuna sushi, frozen edamame, and a fruit salad.
not pictured: a piece of mark's mom's cinnamon cake in a hello kitty bag.

my mom's just had surgery, and nobody's had time for shopping, so this is basically all the food in our house, haha.
and the only reason we have the fruit is because my mom got an "edible arrangement" for her surgery. :P

shrimp, home-made coctail sauce in the silicone cup, brocoli hiding under shrimp. penguin with blue cheese dressing, strawberry filler. salt in the little cat cup.

baby carrots, the last of my concord grapes, babybel with star cut out, wax star decorating supposedly star shaped egg (my last eggs were too big for my egg shapers, i think these are too small).

Bento # 615

So, since tomorrow is 09.09.09 and that's a cool date (I love that kind of numbers) I decided to celebrate it in tomorrow's bento.
My kid is doing "something" at 09:09 at school. Their teacher wouldn't tell them what, so it's going to be exciting...

Tomorrow's lunch has chicken and mushroom risotto with a little cup of creme fraiche on the right and on the left a slice of lemon tart, a babybel, a fruit gummy, ham and soft cheese rolls and cucumber hiding under that.  Not the world's best bento but I am determined to post them all!
