I know I have stated in this blog that I am obsessed with Japanese food and Bento, but I have yet to post anything bento-related! This is mostly down to the bentos being eaten before I remember to take a picture of them, or I do not deem them anything spectacular enough to warrant showing off.
However, I remembered to take photos of my not-so-amazing bentos this morning 😀 (go me!). So, in the picture below, we have the bf’s bento. Simple sushi rice with furikake (nori, sesame seed and bonito), little bottle of soy sauce, with a side of tuna and cherry tomatoes (on a little heart pick, which you can;t quite see). He also had other lunchbox items (outside of the bento box) that included a small quinoa salad, for an afternoon snack, Barbecue flavour japanese rice crackers, 2 homemade mini-muffins (with apple and pear in) fruit and a Fluffernutter mini-sandwich (fluffernutter is the name given to the peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich filling).
This bento box (which includes a fork, spoon, food cover and clear lid) was purchased in Paperchase a while ago. We have matching ones 😀
The next picture is my bento for today 🙂 Again, it contains the sushi rice with furikake and soy sauce (in a fish!!), tuna, and veg scramble (egg, broccoli and tomato). I am trying to get my protein intake up as I really like fruit and veg, and forget to eat all the protein that I should be :O. I also had a pot with diced apple and pear with plain, low fat, greek yoghurt, banana and a Strip-Cheese 😀
My bento box for today is my Hello Kitty box 😀 (I forgot to take a picture of the lid 😦 The top is pink and it is such a cute sized box.
Now I can officially state that I do make and LOVE bento and I hope this is a start of me remembering to take photos of my delicious creations.
Talking of delicious creations. The lunches today were with yesterdays leftover rice.
Below is my dinner yesterday 🙂 sushi rice, with furikake, cucumber salad, and hotdog octopi! I ate all the hotdogs :O oops!
Speak soon 🙂 x
