OKAY so I happened to be looking at ~RiYuPai's bento here: [link] and read the contents and found out there is a manga about BENTO!!! its called "Hatsukoi no Lunchbox" and i went to look it up and read it. It is such a cute manga and I HIGHLY suggest any bento maker to read this series! It even has how-to recipes at the end of each chapter! It not only tells you a story but shows you how to make certain bento items, tips and tricks, and recipes! It is very inspiring and creative! XD I had to print out all the recipes. I was basically following the bento from the first chapter but instead of baseball i decided i wanted lil kitties! Unfortunately i forgot to make the lil tails but oh well. I made it slightly different so that it wouldn't exactly match the one from the manga! Please check it out and read "Hatsukoi no Lunchbox"! well worth it!
ok ok, the menu is really starting to get old, but their is never any leftovers for me to take on the days I need to bring a lunch, and my options were limited. I really need some new bento protein ideas.
I got the heart punch for like $1 in the bargain bin at Micheal's! And if you can't tell, the boiled egg is in the shape of a car. Also I LOVE my panda sauce pot! It was nearly the only one I could find that was good for dipping sauces, the others were all squeeze bottles.
I promise NO MORE HOTDOGS!
