I have not figured out how to do those neat things where you can click on the picture and a little blurb comes up so please bear with my old-skool ways until I figure it out.
I already know what you're thinking... whoa, that's a lot of food for lunch! Relax, it was a bento for two :) The top tier has some shrimp and a little side of pickled ginger, sliced mango and strawberries, star and heart-shaped boiled eggs. I love those cute little egg molds! The bottom tier has some (very dark) chicken karaage, spam katsu, octo-dogs and a sprinkling of cucumber and carrot flowers everywhere. Oh yea, there's some dipping sauce in the blue container.
And to round out the meal..... some arare cookies: no, there wasn't just one, but this was the best picture I found.So this was my first real attempt at bento. Hopefully, there will be more to come. After all, since I bought all those little bento gadgets, I'll have to start making use of them. Until next time....happy bento-ing!
