Bento Lunch Boxes

Must. Invest. In. Bento Boxes. Now.

Every week it seems as if I am obsessed and addicted with something different.  I can’t help it, I have an addictive personality.  This week I am addicted to Bento Lunch Boxes and with school back in session these would make great healthy lunches for the kids to take to school.


Definition of a Bento Box according to Wikipedia:

Bento (弁当 bentō?)[1] is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables, usually in a box-shaped container. Containers range from disposable mass produced to hand crafted lacquerware. Although bento are readily available in many places throughout Japan, including convenience stores, bento shops (弁当屋 bentō-ya?), train stations, and department stores, it is still common for Japanese homemakers to spend time and energy for their spouse, child, or themselves producing a carefully prepared lunch box.
