Guess what? I finally used a "new" bento set that I bought back in September, in California. I think it's too much food though...
Silly me forgot to take pictures of the entire set- the lids are orange, and there's an included matching drink container! Pictures of the same set with details can be found here - the set cost me $13 at the store. I've managed to find a person who will ship them to me for $23 from Hawaii- she also has larger blue ones, same set up, same price. Let me know if you want her contact info, I know I just bought the last one, but she gets them in occasionally... The nifty or niftiest part of the whole set up is that the divided container on the left - the tops of the dividers reach and touch the bottom of the lid, which has grooves specially for that, so my understanding (from reading Lunch in a Box and her lunches using these boxes) is that the contents can't and won't "jump" into the section next to it! Awesome!
Left tier, from top: celery with cucumber slices underneath, and hummus adjacent with a green "grass" divider; sliced Asian pear; seafood gyoza with gyoza sauce
Right tier, from top: kimchi (Korean pickled and fermented spicy cabbage), mini marinated fishy; white rice with tamago furikake sprinkled on top; chicken & veggie curry
Something interesting: I actually made a huge batch of curry the other day and froze scoopfuls (a ladle and a half full, actually) in sandwich bags laying flat in my freezer. Once frozen, the curry peels out of the bag very easily for a quick spin in the microwave to defrost and heat through. Voila, perfect for my lunch! I just heated it through really quickly this morning, and as I'd made fresh rice last night, I tossed some into my lunch as well. Easy. Everything else is just stuff I keep on hand... so easy, so yummy, and a ton of fun for me to eat later!
As always... happy bento'ing!
