Re: Share your Bento Boxes!

I really love the egg molds they have, but DS doesn't like boiled eggs so that would be a waste. And I had never heard of food markers until I saw that blog. I think I might try those too.

Stephy, those snack sacks are so cute! I might have to get some!

And I've seen the laptop lunch boxes but I don't like them for some reason. I like the cuteness of the bento boxes. LOL

Does anyone have a good recipe for rice balls??? I want to make some rice balls and maybe mold them into cute things.

Re: Share your Bento Boxes!

I bought some off Gilt. They have these awesome Goodbyn ones that are way marked down. i got it because it comes with the waterbottle.

but its only like $15 each, way cheaper than anywhere else i've seen thati s that quality.

ETA:

oops. lol, i quickly read teh OP and thought you were asking what we use as boxed


but i make DH's lunch in this, and snacks for the kiddos. i really just put whatever in it. sandwich/leftovers, a grain, a fruit and a veggie. and usualyl a small treat! nothing special...its just the box makes it fun to organize. to me it looks so pretty!

IMO the laptop lunch boxes (we have one- had more but sold them) are too big for bento lunches.

Yes, I thought they would be too big for my toddler so I opted for a regular Bento box. I can't wait to get them. I'll add pics of the items when they arrive.

Re: Share your Bento Boxes!

ok I'm back sorry I had to leave such a short reply earlier.

I used to post on flickr under the "kid eats" or kids eat pool, but I don't anymore. I didn't want to pay for a pro account. there are a TON of ppl who do though. LINK Biggie the moderator is the blogger from Lunch in a Box if you LOVE your laptop lunch there is a pool just for laptop lunches also. there is a pool for Mr Bentos too.

I also have an ongiri recipe on my blog (rice balls) and a tutorial for freezing them for fast bento packing. My girls like them plain but you can mix in furitake, minced veggies etc also.

I also make hand held savory pies (mini ones), pizza rolls etc to keep in the freezer

I make pizza rolls and hand held pies (with savory fillings) and keep them in the fridge also.
Jlist has bentos too just google them

if you live near a Daiso they have great stuff it's a Japanese yen store I always get a ton when I get to one

I use a Mr bento for DH, a smaller version for DD, I have an obsession with bento boxes and have way to many I have one metal tiffin we love.
I have three extras but I find the one we have is enough so need to sell the others and other stuff.

I keep my belts, molds, egg molds, sauce cups/bottles, picks, cutters, foils, silicone cupcake cups for stuff, etc in drawers it doesn't look like that anymore I have gotten too many items crammed in there.

I can't wait until the school year starts. I picked up four packs of cream cheese and they are so small and cute for dipping pretzels and carrots and such. DD loves her food hot though so I didn't pack many bentos last year.

I also picked up a few bentos from the disney store.
