Remember I told you about having a new food-related obsession? Yes, I've started to make bento lunches! These japanese lunchboxes are a blast to make and eat, and help a lot with portion control - but though they look tiny, they really do hold a lot!
Many bento makers spend a lot of time making beautiful, cute and elaborate bentos. Take a look at this or this bento to see what I mean! But I am still a beginner, so I'm focusing on making my bentos healthy and filling rather than pretty. Cookie cutters are a great way to make simple bentos look more fun though - like the heart and star sandwiches in the box above! :-)
My sister got me this blue box and two others when she visited London a few months ago - unfortunately, bento boxes are really hard to find in Sweden. Thanks, sis! Having a nice box makes bringing leftovers to work a lot more fun. The above bento is just a mix of what I happened to have in the fridge that day - and it still manages to look somewhat appetizing!
If you want to learn more about bento making, I warmy recomment the blog Lunch in a Box, it's got all the information you could possibly need and more! I'm hoping to improve my bento making skills this summer, so there will be more bento related posts to come!
