Ok, today we had planned a picnic, but it didn't happen, so I turned my picnic goodies into bento goodies! My husband doesn't have a box, since we were supposed to eat that picnic together. Darned schedule!
Today I decided to use the very first bento I've bought. It's a small 2 tier bento, I usually use it as a snack bento since I've always felt like it was too small for a meal. WRONG! I had plenty of food in there, and it was delicious!
Here's my box:
In the top tier, on the left, I have left over roasted chicken shredded. With that I have cucumber slices. Nothing fancy.
In the lower tier, on the right, I have Confetti Bean Salad, with avocado slices on top.
Since the box is a little smaller, I went for "filling foods" like beans, and avocado, with proteins to keep me going with less food.
Here's my box closed. I like that it's all red with no decoration. I bought it at Ichiban Kan for like $1.50.
I wanted to give an idea of how small the box really is. Here it is, bundled up (no cooler bag, just the box) in my hand. See? It's tiny!
I'm really happy I decided to do this "different box each day" thing. It's forcing me to think and making me realize how versatile my boxes are. I'm having a blast with this!
To think I was always using the same box every day! This is so much fun!
Happy Bento Everybody!
