In my re-introduction post I made a short while ago I talked a bit about my new obsession with creating obento lunches for myself and using and collecting bento boxes. I've decided to make a thread where I will post some pics to the bentos I make for myself. I'm busy so it might not be every day, but whenever I get the chance, I will post.

Here are 2 pics from yesterday and today's lunch. I used my spiffy 4 tiered stainless steel one (not as cute as my other ones but holds lots of food and I've been sick lately so I want to feed my body well!) It's a Zojirushi Mr. Bento
Sept 21st: Bulgur salad, cucumber/tomato salad, mandarin orange segments, steamed edamame
Sept 22nd: roasted vegetable soup/stew, wholemeal bread with a piece of la vache qui rit (laughing cow) cheese, lightly marinated carrot, quinoa and caramalized onions
The bentos weren't too pretty the last couple days, but I've been under the weather so I'm more focused on nutrition rather than presentation. Usually I try to make them look a lot more appealing...
Oh well. I'll post cuter ones as the days progress.
