Bento # 641 & 642

Gah! Totally forgot to post yesterday's bento, so here it is together with today's. I found fresh okra in our asian store and 've seen it so often in Japanese bentos that I had to try it.
I need to figure out what to do with it though. Is it at all edible raw? It was ok deep fried but cooked it was very slimy. What do you do with it?

School Lunch Bento

 Here are my bentos from yesterday for the kiddies.

In a 500ml box is rice, steamed carrots, chicken karaage, snap peas, skewered edamame, sliced persimmion, crab shumai and homemade jello cups with grape and cherry fillers.

Wow, it didn't seem like a lot until I wrote it all down! 

Buddy has the same contents in his PowerRanger 500ml bento box.

sharing is fun - and cute!

(no subject)

the theme of most of my bentos this week has been the instant-cute addition of lil' cheese wheel baby bel's with a star punched in the wax. oh my GOSH I love how it just made our lunches THAT MUCH CUTER - yaaay!! sadly I ran out of them, so today's lunch and tomorrow's won't have any. thank you thank you to the folks in this community that I saw w/the lil' cheese wheel accents - you inspired me to do the same, and I LOVE it! :D :D :D

our bentos from 10/19/09. chicken nuggets, rice, peas and sauce pig in one tier. star cheese, cucumber and carrot coins, and raspberries (and asparaguses in mine).
