|My lunches this week -- Tamagoyaki Bento, Mediterranean Bento, and Salad Nicoise Bento.|
If bento is an unfamiliar term to you, as I understand it, it simply refers to a single-portion takeout or home packed meal in Japan. There is kyaraben bento or character bento that is an elaborate portrayal of characters from Japanese cartoons. There is oekakiben or picture bento that is decorated to look like animals, flowers, etc... I'll leave it to you to do your own research from here if you're intrigued.
I shared these pictures on Instagram and have had many inquiries about my new bento boxes. So, here are links to my new toys. Molding the eggs is simple, you just hard boil them like you usually do, peel the egg while it's still hot, and then pop it into a mold. Here's a nice little tutorial I ran across on Youtube.
