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!
Happy Valentines Day Everyone! Since this is the first Single's Awarness Day in over 5 years that I have had someone to spend it with I decided that today should be special all around and I should have a delicious bento to make my day that much brighter. And what better than to have a Pokemon bento?! So anyway this bento contains:
Kissing Luvdisk (x2) Rice, Ketchup, Nori, Cheese, and Mayo Fried Shrimps Heart Shaped Egg Broccoli Raspberries Cherry Tomato Lettuce Liner
I hope you all have a romantic day.... or at least one filled with chocolate!
Being the week before Easter I thought it would be fun to do a special little bento. I got the idea for the Rilakkuma Inari from Anna The Red. She's a marvelous bento and plushie maker. If you would like a tutorial on how to make these little guys you can find it here: [link]. They are easy to make so give em a try! This bento contains: 2 Inarizushi (1 Rilakkuma, 1 Regular) Mochiko Chicken (With A Little Decorative Bone Pick) 1/2 Small Sweet Pepper Cut Into Rings Gari (Pickled Ginger) Sliced Strawberry Cilantro Leaves (Decoration)
*Here's a little side note, just to prove that bento makers practice what they preach I'm going to list the calories for this bento below. This is to help show that bento are not just cute or delicious they are also healthy and very reasonable in calories. Please Enjoy!

Well I came across bento (japanese lunch boxes) last year and some how I really liked the idea of having a whole lunch in a cute box and with some cute decorations.
This one is my 15 th so far...I still have to learn a lot specially having all colors in it and using better light to make pictures and use less unhealthy food.
Here I had an egg mad into a cute bunny face with an egg mold. some cocktail tomatoes and mini sized peppers. grilled vegetables with peanut butter sauce and ramen noodles and tofu with soy and mayo marinade. And on the cute paper umbrella (a left one of my friend B.'s present for T.'s birthday) grapes and gummy bears.
