Lunch: Easter Bento: March 31, 2010

Mobile pics of today's bento lunch! It was very pretty, healthy and inexpensive. I prepped and steamed the veggies, pealed and dyed the egg, cut the nori, and arranged the bento before heading to work, and took very little time. And it was very tasty and satifying.

What was in the bento:
dyed hardboiled egg with nori polka dots, steamed sweet potato flowers (held in place with gochujang, aka korean red pepper paste), sugar snap pea (sliced), scallion (cut into long pieces), pickled red onion slices, yellow cauliflower, furikake seasoned nori, brown rice

Time to catch up on some of the bentos I've made and didn't post. I have more photos in my computer and camera, but these are some I took with my cell phone. :-)

Target finds!!!

Found these at our local Target store.

Tiffin picnic bentos: available in pinks (below, available online) and blues (not shown, stores only) These are like the Vivo 4 layer bentos on Amazon... I'm not sure how different they are, but they are only $19.99 at Target, compared to Vivo's version (priced at $39.99). I got both the tiffin color sets.

And Sassy baby bento: available in pink and blue. (Also available in Babies R Us, Amazon in varied colors, and elsewhere.) We already had one of the multicolored sets from a year or so ago (bento pictured in an older post). Since I loved that set, I figured I'd go ahead and get a blue and pink set. *grins*
