Inspired by photos of healthy, delicious, & cute homemade bento box lunches on Flickr, I made my own first bento on 21 August 2010. This is what it looked like:

My second ever bento looked like this:

So far, I've eaten all my bento's at home, as I don't need to be anywhere for work. My third bento looked like this:
Since carbs had more or less been missing from my bento's so far (save for the toast), I found something in the cupboards I only had to heat up: canned spagehetti - not very Japanese I know. Speed is key, as every time I make bento's my baby also wants my attention. But hey, I was already hooked and my bento's could only get better.
Next day I made 2 bento's! - one for lunch and one for dinner.

In the evening I made another bento. It didn't take long to chop up some pumpkin and cook it while assembling my bento, adding maple syrup and cinnamon for some extra flavour. The little egg/nori rolls make their appearance again.
