You can enter as many times as you like and I will put your name into a drawing and we will see who the winner is!  I will pick a winner on September 25th so that is 20 whole days for you all to get as many entries in as possible.

Steak and Pho noodle bento

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!

Asian food Market!

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!

Neat magnetic containers from wal-mart!

Found these super neat containers at wal-mart for 4 dollars a peice yesterday. They screamed "BENTO" when i walked by. They are pretty small, but big enough for all my picks, and paper cups and some punches to fit in. They have a strong magnet on the back, and stick right to the side of the fridge for easy storage and display. I am in love with them! I found them in the desk/office area.

I also apologize for the lack of posts. I have been so busssy! I did get a new camera though, and I am trying to get motivated to take photos of my bento from now on.  I am going to try doing them in a close up, then get the whole picture and collage them like so. Let me know what you guys think! Glad to be back.
