Now don't get me wrong I love all my boxes and I think this one is beautiful. But some are just not practical. The first real bento box I bought has all sorts of dividers which I thought I needed. I don't, heck you really don't need a special box. And this bowl/box was my second real bento box purchase. And well, it sits in the cabinet with the first one. Oh well, lessons learned and I do have 9 boxes now. I try to refrain from buying more. But I do have a few styles that I think I would like to have before I buy just to collect. I really would like an oval shaped wooden one, a stainless steel Lunchbots type and one with the thermal container and side boxes.
For today's lunch I have a lion sandwich. The lions face was made with cheddar and provolone cheese. I used 100% whole wheat bread and there is turkey inside. In the other section I have red beans, baby carrots, rice cracker mix and sweet gherkin pickles. And I just tossed in a mandarin orange. I hope everyone has a bentoful day!
The bento4japan auctions are still on going. I keep getting outbid. I'm not too upset about it. That just means that more money is being raised to help those in Japan.
Also Maki from Just Bento has a message on her site regarding this disaster. I have been following her on Twitter and her commentary on there has me laughing and sometimes dropping my jaw.
