Today's Bento has marinated Mozzarella, Campari Tomatoes and anchovies with capers in the sealed tier. The bottom tier has sweet omelette and a Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Truffle heart.

For my snacks: Banana, 2 Clementines and an Avocado. I also have Roasted Red Pepper hummus and Crackers if I need something else. Really have to plan for a 10 hour shift, I got caught short of snacks yesterday. I can't eat at 9 pm and come home to sleep.

That sounds really good, PF. Great variety.

Here are pics of my "box." It's not exactly traditional, but was purchased in Japan. The brand is Thermos, so it might be available online. Insulation is so-so, a bit lukewarm by noon. Bottom container has rubber sealed lid. Minor, but unfortunately, all the lids are not microwaveable. The chopsticks came with, but for some lunches, I pack a... yep, a spork.

Good Morning, Spork! Your Bento is very similar to my Mr. Bento by Zojirushi, mine came with a spork and I carry chopsticks. I have quite the collection of sporks and chopsticks.

The bento is certainly teaching me about portion sizes.

I feel like Conan the Barbarian when I eat with it.

New Bento Box

I filled it with pasta and sauce, tomato wedges, parmesan and a Dark Chocolate Dove heart! I'm also taking along a banana and 2 clementines.
