So this bento resulted from the sushi recipe I was using not knowing how to make rice. Following their instructions a ended up with a wallpaper paste mess of rice. At that point it was too late at night to throw it out and start again so I just used leftovers. We have leftover pasta with basalmic vinegrette, cubesteak with sweet onion gravy and the return of cheese and for something new stirfried zucchini.

Security:Public

School started Monday so I have somewhere to go to so I can make bento. This is also the first time I've made spring rolls. Imagine tissue paper with the stickiness of cling wrap and you got rice paper, still I dont' think they came out to bad. They are filled with imitation crab, cucumber, rice, spinach and mint leaves. The brown goo is a spicy peanut sauce. Next to that is cheese cubes and cranberry, golden raisin, and almond mix followed by a little pickled ginger.

Yeah, I know there has been a distinct lack of Bento Pictures of late. This is because my schedule changed and I eat lunch at home and that just doesn't motivate one to do bento. But my next quarter starting June 25, I'm going to be needing to take lunch everyday. So more bento pics for everyone. :)

I'm going to probably be doing some practice bento (yes, I practice) between now and then so stay tuned. And probably more bento non-pic posts as well, just soon as I catch up on school projects.

I had wrote captions for all of these but my computer munged it and I'm too annoyed right now to start again. So here are just pictures :)

I won't start on making new bento until school starts on Monday so I thought I would entertain with pictures of old ones. They are not that old since I've been making bento for less than a year I think. But hopefully you will start to see improvement in my technique.
