BENTO #105

For today's lunch bento, I grilled a piece of Cod fish, blanched the same vegetables which I used from this morning and wrapped a lettuce to hold them. There was some rice in the same box.

In the front box, was a slice of pizza, some caramelized ginger and leftover braised vegetable roots. This morning, when I logged in to Biggie's site, I was in for a surprise. She announced that she had reached her one millionth hit. To commemorate her one millionth mark, she has created a page for community announcements of packed lunch blog events & contests.

And she mentioned Bento Pet's Bento Competition! Wow! Was I excited! Biggie is like the pioneer and authority in packing Bento in Blogger world and it's really an honour to be mentioned in her site.

While we're on the subject of
"Bento Pet's Bento Competition", please send in your entries soon. We have approximately two weeks before the competition ends.

BENTO #104

Today is #2's first day back to school after 10 days. *swoons and wipes forehead* Last night before she went to bed she reminded me about wanting salad for her Bento. My week long and forgotten salad was rotting and I threw them away this morning.

I put together some carrot sticks, French beans, baby corn, baby tomatoes and some dried cranberries for the left box. There is no dressing, she'll have to experience the taste first hand and for added flavor she can eat them with the dried cranberries - it's a little tangy so it's got an extra kick.

In the right box I packed dates stuffed with almond, some more tomatoes, a tub of Mini Mooh Rupp cheese and some baked crisp bread. I'm learning not to over stuff food into #2's Bento because after last week's experience of having to eat from the Bento's, I realized that it's a lot to have to eat for break time.

If you have time to come back to browse, I'll be packing my lunch bento later for uploading.

Have a great day!!
