Bento #13

While I was on my short break from blogging I did continue to make bentos on a daily basis. Some worth photographing and sharing and some that were not. Here is one of those I thought was worth sharing. The bento box I used for this one is one of my favorites. It is in the shape of a fan and I was lucky to find it for next to nothing on eBay an few years ago. I’ve been dying to use it and this time I had my chance.


This bento consists of a few experimental foods and some of the usual. First off I made tamagoyaki sprinkled with cheese, mini farfalle (bow tie) pasta mixed with salsa and cheese. Then I did some experimenting. I used puff pastry and made some broccoli and cheese bundles. I wrapped broccoli florets in thin slices of chicken breast and I made salsa and cheese chicken wrapped bundles.

The items in this bento have now become some of my staple bento items and you will definitely see them in the future either the same or as a variation. I will post step by step instructions soon.

So until the next bento, Itadaki masu!

Hey Sheri, The food in this bento came out really well. Everything in the bento leant itself really well to the shape. I look forward to using it more in the future.

Hi Jenn, sometimes I pick the bento I am going to use before I pick the food but this time the food picked the bento. I love it when my experiments work out well.

What a wonderful box, I have never come across one in that particular shape but now I'm going to keep my eyes open for one. And the contents sounds equally yummy.

Hey Ingrid, I was so excited when I found the box on eBay a while ago. I haven't seen one like it since. I really leant itself well to what I put in it. Thanks for stopping by and glad to have you back.
