Artistic lunch boxes

“Bento” in Japanese means “lunchbox”. “Bento” can be prepared by oneself at home or you can buy it already prepared in “bento” shops or in convinience stores. A typical “bento” has a white rice, pickles and a “main dish”. The way you fit the food inside the “bento” is very important and some people take it so seriously that it can become an art, take a look:

    […] Today they were inspired by some cute artistic bentos and decided to make some of their own. They weren’t in thew mood for rice so we went with the traditional meal in our house, peanut butter and honey with almonds, cheese, and carrots. I made them each one then they made their own. (Rachel’s was Tetris with a flower, the other two had smiley faces with cheese and almond hair and accessories.) Here are the kids’ versions (beware of the blur–the kids took the pictures). This is also a very frugal way of making kids meals–use what is on hand–even if it is something the kids don’t like, and get creative (they ate the whole thing, and Issac doesn’t like cheese, Esther doesn’t like almonds, and they all ate the crust.
