Todays lunch has steak, and pho noodles (aka rice sticks) with corn, broccoli, and tomatoes! I guess the rainy dreary day inspired a boring bento. I promise some cuteness in the near future. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

After a long hiatus from the blog, my bento obsession was refueled by stumbling upon an oriental food market. I have really missed the bento scene, and hopefully I am back for good this time. I don't know how many of you in the states are from the East coast, but if you ever happen to wander down to Myrtle Beach SC there is a little store tucked in Socastee which is just out of the beach. No bento boxes but there is a great collection of foods and treats and cooking ingredients. I bought a lot of things that had to be eaten before I made my trek back home and unfortunately I did not get any pictures. I do however have a few pictures of the treats I bought! A assorted pack of mini jelly cups. These are a lot like jello. Some grape flavored gummies, a lychee and coconut jelly and some golden rabbit caramel. I also got some buckwheat soba, rice sticks or pho noodles, seaweed sheets, furikake, some bean paste filled things....They were covered with like a powder and kind of chewy with red bean paste inside...Should these have been cooked? I wasn't entirely sure. I also got some mochi ice cream, it came with chocolate, green tea, and vanilla. It was ice cream wrapped in mochi from what I could tell. I can't wait to start putting these things in bento! Hope to be hearing from you all soon!
