After talking with a couple of friends, and doing some reading up on the subject, we’re going to give Bento a go. It will be a good way for DH to eat better while at work, and for when Roh & I go out, we’ll be able to eat healthier rather than relying on fast food.
So after finding that Bento ‘stuff’ is nigh on impossible unless you have some kind of Bento-radar, and ordering online can get expensive, when you come across a “$2 shop” that has small Bento Boxes and other cool stuff for $2.99 (rather than paying $35 per box), and that Aldi has a ‘similar’ item that is leak proof and sectional for under $10… you kinda get excited.
Below are our boxes, and the first bento to go! Lunch for DH with 3 onigiri, some pan fried chicken on lettuce and 2 hard boiled eggs. Not a terriffic Bento, but for a beginner with limited supplies (to start with), not bad.
