Feisty Bento #81: Thanksgiving, Deconstructed

The last of my Thanksgiving leftovers... boo...

While I was eating my lunch yesterday, my delightful coworker Orzo said to me, "You're violating the rules of bento!  I think covering anything in gravy immediately negates any healthy effect your bento might have."  I responded by staring at him and slowly eating the rest of my delicious side dish of stuffing and turkey smothered in gravy.  Do I care?  Nope!  (Also that's not a rule of bento; deep fried stuff makes it way into bento all the time, case in point.)  So, today's super-gravy-bento is dedicated to him.  It says, "Eat me."  *grin*

Top tier: slices of stuffing, pan fried- that's right I said pan fried!!! crispity goodness; shredded turkey off the "small" drumsticks
Bottom tier: green beans with mushrooms; gravy baby

This is the very last of all of my Thanksgiving leftovers... sniffles... I wish I had more!  Ah well... I can't wait for lunchtime!

Happy Bento'ing!!!

  1. I love how people who don't make bentos have all sorts of rules about what constitutes "an actual bento."

    One of my co-workers "won't accept" any of my bento creations that aren't nestled within a legitamate bento box, reeking of Hello Kitty cuteness.

    And I've read another blog where the daughter claims it isn't bento if it doesn't have a face on it. Too funny.
