There are very few bentos where I don't use a container of some kind. They are so useful! I love them for fruit, stirfry and cheese. Today I used my absolute favorite container to pack black eyed peas. The peas are a bit juicy and this container with its lid is perfect for things that might lead to a sloppy messy bento disaster otherwise.
In the bento: The smaller tier holds plain spaghetti noodles, a tomato flower and pear leaf. The larger tier contains the panda with black eyed peas, Morningstar Farms chik nuggets, carrot flowers, steamed broccoli, orange slices and panda picks with blueberries.
Not shown are a small bottle full of grated Parmesan cheese, a container of ketchup and a soy sauce bottle.
Here is my new fun thing! I'm calling it the Bento Treasures link-up. I want to know what container is your favorite. Link -up to a picture of a bento with your favorite container in use. It can be one of your bentos, it can be one of my bentos. It can be someone else's bento (as long as there is proper attribution, of course). If you don't make bentos or don't own any containers yet, show me a container that you'd like to have. I'll have a new theme for the next four weeks. Let's find out more about our bento obsession!
