Bento # 649

Still clinging to the idea that summer and spring can't be gone - although looking outside on the storm and rain certainly negates that... :( I HATE autumn... So I'd rather have summer than autumn in my bentos...

First real bento!

Hi everyone! I am back! I only get paid once a month, so I had to wait until the end of the this past week to go out and finally get a real bento! I am very much about how things look (I am a designer) so I was just so uninspired with bentos in regular tupperwear that I couldn't WAIT to get a real one again.

I went out to the local Japanese Market and entertainment store (One World Market and Mirai in Novi for this metro-Detroit-er) and got some much needed food supplies as well as a new bento box at a great price! However I forgot that I was just buying the box and not a strap as well so I have to use a rubber band til I can get out there again or shop online. But I found a ribbon to pretty it up. Mirai has a great selection of bento supplies (and it grows every time I am there) but I find most of the bentos are too small. I love these rectangular ones (which is what I used to use before I damaged them ;_; ) but they only had two different styles :/ I might just have to splurge online.

Anywho, here is my first bento of November (my birth month yay!) And I was nice to you guys and didn't take it with my iPhone again lol.

Top: Rice

Bottom: Chicken gyoza with roasted zucchini and carrots with a soy sauce piggy.

Also: Instant miso and cherry limeade crystal light.
Like I said, I am a very picky eater so there won't be many exciting ingredients, but finally eating it out of a real bento made it exciting again for me!!!
