Wow, grumble, I am speechless... you were feeling a bit LAZY, and you go out of your way to cut out stars on wiener slices!! Just curious what do you do with the "stars" themselves, I mean the centre parts that have been cut out? I bet they will be welcome treats for your furry buddies!!
And I see you are also an edamame fan!! You are giving me a craving for them!!

Ah, I didn't get around to reply here yesterday, I would love the recipe for the carrot soup, as well as the roasted vegetable stew, if you can!!

Sorry its taken me awhile to get back to you, I've been so busy this week. My sister is here visiting from Holland, plus I'm working like a dog... I'm so tired! I still managed a few bentos this week and last though I didnt get many pictures. Here is the recipe for the carrot soup and I'll post the recipe for the veggie stew for you later. (dont have much time this morning... will check in later tonight)

Here is my bento for today, October 5th. (gosh, how did it get to be October, already? )



Fixins for a salad nicoise: hardboiled egg, anchovies, green beans, cherry tomatoes, potato, olives, homemade green goddess vinegrette, spring mix salad greens.

I agree with Half Baked. I see this thread on the new posts list and I just have to come and have a look. Your pictures are great, Grumblebee, but the food is even better!

How does this work with the food safety concerns with the seafood items? What is and isn't safe to leave out at room temperature in a bento box for ~4 hours?

I was told that the shumai and shrimp that I packed in mine today was a "no no". I've seen other people pack salmon, egg rolls, gyoza, etc...

I'm not sure why shumai would be any different from gyoza..

Anyway, any thoughts? I love making bentos but I don't much care for getting sick, lol. I have a distinct preference for traditional Japanese ingredients/items in my bentos, generally.
