I finally won something on the bento4japan ebay auctions going on. Just a small accessories set but I was happy I was able to help. I had actually put in a higher maximum bid than what it ended at but that just means I will be able to bid on something else now. Gotta budget for bentos you know. There are many more great items available. Make sure you take a look.
Today's lunch was made with many ideas and no plan at all. I hate when I have all these ideas in my head for bentos and I want to try them all at once. Sometimes it backfires on me. We went to the grocery store this weekend and I picked up some Babybel cheese and some of those sweet peppers like seen on the Bento Zen blog. And I finally got to use my new tamagoyaki pan! Love it! Thanks Heather! She still has more available if you would like to buy your own on the OhayoBento site.
I cooked my tamagoyaki and then placed very thin sliced ham inside before rolling it up. Also in this box I have a mixture of carrots, cucumber, mint and peanuts inside rice paper. I added a purple potato/carrot flower to the middle of the rice paper then placed the mixture on top. I then folded up the bottom and pinched it together to make a ball. Other items are mandarin orange, cucumber slices, grape tomatoes, sweet mini pepper, broccoli, blueberries and grape mochi.
