Audrey - mask

Atlanta-area peeps!

I wanted to let anyone in the Atlanta area in Georgia (and I know there are a bunch of us) know that the Super H-Mart in Duluth currently has a bunch of little character-themed plastic bento boxes for about $4. I saw one in particular that was some sort of penguin character. It came with two tiers and a band. Plus Ramune is on sale this week (I think? maybe longer?) for 99 cents and they had a TON of flavors. (I got pineapple - I had no idea it came in so many varieties.)

I also bought just a few boxes of cookies:

Also I just wrote an article about saving money by packing bento boxes - I'd love if you all would check it out and comment. FULL DISCLOSURE: I get paid for page views (it's on Examiner.com) but I do NOT randomly spam my articles, I'm just particularly pleased with this one and wanted to share it.

And I will be writing a different article for a local (new) funky parenting magazine called Ruckus about packing bento boxes for your kids - if you're Atlanta-area-based and you make bento lunches FOR YOUR KIDS and you'd be interested in being interviewed, please leave a comment and I'll add you to my list. I can't promise I'll interview everyone but you never know...! :)

Thanks and see ya Wednesday with another bento! :)

Beef Stroganoff and Fruit Salad

Beef Stroganoff and Fruit Salad

mike box contains beef stroganoff. rocky box contains fruit salad and a chocolate dipped strawberry.

kind of a boring bento, though it will be tasty.
it kind of irks me that you can see the box on the smaller box, but I didn't feel like eating a whole box's worth of fruit.

and mom's feeling well enough from her surgery to cook us food :) hooray!
though she still has 5 or so weeks off from work.

I bought these boxes in tokyo disneyland when I went last summer. there's also a sulley box that's purple.

Simple bento for two

Here's a bento picture I forgot to post! It dates back from June! XD



For two: some chicken/vegetables stir-fry with rice and octodogs.
All leftovers, so practical!
The drawings on rice are just ketchup (heart for my boyfriend, Mickey "logo" for me... because the BF's name is Mick. :D)

Bento # 619

Mostly leftovers once more. But will you LOOK at those Baby Kiwi? I've never seen those before but they had them when I was shopping in Friday. They're no bigger than grapes, and not furry, but other than that, they're simply micro kiwis. Aren't they ADORABLE?!

Hiyashi Chuka Bento




Tomorrow's bento is mostly Hiyashi Chuka.  At least that's apparently what it's called, I used to eat it all the time only I just used to pick up a box of it in the conbini without reading the label.  I saw a recipe for it online and remembered how much I liked it an how simple it looked to prepare, perfect bento food!  The rest is a babybel on top of a jar of dressing, carrot and cucumber slices on picks, a mango pudding hiding under the edamame and Terry's Chocolate Orange segments dotted around in there too.
