about the bento

I'm waiting on some cute bento accessories before I take the plunge, but wanted to talk about the size of a bento. I love the Laptop Lunch System and rarely do the kids finish their entire lunch at lunchtime. The bento boxes are SMALL (perhaps because Asians know better about portion size then we do!). Mae has a HUGE appetite so I wondered how I could (artfully!) stuff enough food into such a tiny box for her. I came across this bento at Bento Anarchy, and my fears are clearly unfounded. This is a LOT of food and I doubt she could eat it all. So, the moral of the story is, cute and PACKED IN. Tomorrow I'm cooking the rice so the kiddos should have some onigiri to show for Friday's lunch.
