A more traditional bento

Carrot hearts over jasmine rice, sauteed marinated tofu sticks, a cherry tomato half, sweet peas and 3 large carrot coins. A plastic toothpick carries a Hello Kitty sticker mascot.

I received some new bento books in the mail a while back and wanted to try something a little more traditional. (This bento was actually from around Aug. 2nd...I've been feeling really horrible this summer and haven't gotten much posting done on anything. I apologize for the lateness! There are a few more to catch up and then on to recent bentos.)

Glad to see you are back -- missed your pretty lunches. Hope you are feeling better and that it is nothing serious!

Thank you so much!!! I'm beginning to feel better, nothing serious but definately annoying :)

I'm very glad that you like my bentos, thank you!

I so amazed at the artwork that goes into the bento boxes. Yours look so inviting and I luv the Totoro bento box. Where do you get your bento box books from and are they in English?

Natakiya said...

Thank you, perennialgirl! I love the Totoro box, too. It's one of my favorites!

Most of my bento books are in Japanese, I just look at the pretty pictures and wish so much that I could read the recipes! They are from Amazon Japan. You can buy them online, but the shipping actually costs more than the books which really sucks or I would have many more of them!!!
