Lame Bento

Blagh.  Low quality bento.  At least there's a picture.  Featuring mango flavored Ramune!  Yum yum!

Ingredients:  Noodles, Hot pockets[?], Wheat thins, Peanut butter, Homemade strawberry jam, Ramune

Tips:  Pictures!  I have made way more bentos than I have posted.  I tend to deem some unworthy of pictures, but they all are!  At least for documentation purposes...

Quail Egg Bento

The asian food market I shop at finally stocked some quail eggs!  Once I decided to buy some I wasn't able to get any for a few months.  This is a super simple bento, but it allowed me to try a new food.  They were pretty delicious when they were boiled, but not too different from normal eggs.

Ingredients:  Noodles, Celery, Little sausages, Quail eggs

Tips:  Research new foods.  I had to search for a while before I found how long most quail eggs should be boiled.  If I had just tried to wing it there would have been much epic failure x_x.

Sanrio: Hello Kitty Birthday Bento

It's been so long!  This is from November 25th, my birthday.  I finally made a Hello Kitty bento!!  There was more to this bento, like snacks in Hello Kitty containers, but this is the only picture I have.  Couldn't even find my camera, so I had to use the mac.

I used no reference picture. The image wouldn't resize on Blogger. So today we have a Larger Image.

Ingredients: Noodles, Peanuts, Cherry tomatoes, Licorice, Peanut M&Ms

Tips:  Take those risks.  I was worried my Hello Kitty would be low-quality.  It was.  But it still made me ultra-happy.
