swordage: Kitty cat! (x cat)
[personal profile] swordage
Poor little bento comm. Bentos need more love! LET US COMMENCE THE LOVING.

I haven't been making bentos for very long at all, but I love having a plan and then totally making it up as I go along instead! And today my strange methods paid off and I made a meal I am darn proud of:

In the top two compartments are tomato wedges, kumquats, green grapes, and blueberries. The main compartment had a thick layer of red lettuce, sliced orange bell pepper, broccoli, and strawberries. After I took the picture I tucked chickpeas and black olives into the sides of the main compartment (and ate two of the strawberries - shhh!). There's dressing/dip in a little yogurt container (not pictured) so that things can be eaten as either munchies or as a salad. I was worried about this being not very filling for long (it's for my dad, who leaves for work at 7am and comes home at 7pm) so in the lid I put two little toasted cheese breads. Whew! A lot of stuff! He'll eat it all though. I hope he remembers to bring a fork...

Older bento (ewwww, old bentos...) this way! )
