Bento # 631

A lazy bento. I wasn't really in the mood to cook when I came home from work at 1:30 am. Besides, I'd recently bought that sandwich de-cruster/sealer and wanted to try it out. So ..

Bento # 631
Bento # 631
Banana with stamped-in faces. Two sandwiches, one (not visible) with tuna salad, the top with lettuce and baloney. Bear-shaped egg. Pooh-shaped cucumbers and -carrot.

593: spaghetti

Spaghetti with snow pea flower, corn, fingerling potatoes, chicken pieces and brussels sprouts. Snack box has cheese and crackers, and a worm made out of that peanut butter dough that was posted here last week. On that dough -- I put in way more milk powder and cereal than called for, but the dough is still very soft and sticky at room temp. I mean, Muffin won't be able to pick this up and bite it because it will be all droopy and soft by lunchtime. Is that the way it is supposed to be?

Bento #53

Top Tier: green colored rice bear and strawberries
Bottom Tier: carrots and edamame
Sandwich Box: egg salad sandwich

I haven't really had time to pack lately and this one is less than spectacular.  I need some more time and/or inspiration.  Anyone know of any good bento sites for some sweet inspiration?

Lighting is the key

I've come to decide that until I have better lighting in my kitchen, my food photography is not going to get better, which is really sad. And since it's a shared kitchen, I can't just set up a photography station or anything, so for now it will continue being the best pics I (or my fiancee) can get.

Anyways, onto the actual bento. These are mostly just leftovers, with a little bit of tweaking and attempts at making them look nice. Unfortunately, my new box does not compliment my leftover nabeyaki soba at all >.< Or the tempura for that matter. I think I'll try salad next time.

Does anyone have any recommendations as to what would look better in my new bento? It's so bright and cheery, but tan or grey-ish foods make it look so sad.
