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!
3 Imodango (potato dumplings), cooked broccoli and romanesco broccoli, yellow cocktail tomatoes, a sesame mochi, raspberries, pickled vegetables, carrot stars and peppers with cream cheese and a little bottle of soy sauce.
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!
