Feisty Bento #199: Attempt at Food Art

Top tier: sirloin steak; marinated tomatoes & cucumbers
Bottom tier: chocolate peanut butter pretzels (Trader Joe's); tea infused pasta salad

This took me 5 minutes to pack this morning.  Awesome.  Since it was the same stuff as yesterday mostly, I just put the steak in circles and plopped some salad inside them.  Also, my sister said I had too much steak yesterday (like she'd know! hmph!), so I figured this cuts down on how much... Also, the last of the pasta salad, sadly.

Ooh!  Not Exactly Bento has been putting chocolate covered peanut butter filled pretzels in her bentos lately and the craving hit hard this morning.  Thankfully I have a bag in my pantry I'd been putting off opening until I could hold out no longer... that was today.  So!  Thanks a bunch :P

Tomorrow will be bento #200.  Any suggestions or requests for what to put in it?

And if you haven't already, what are you waiting for?  Go enter my contest.

  1. Boo to having too much steak. Is there really such a thing? And you're welcome on the pb pretzel thing. I was just returning the favor. :)

    Hmm, bento #200. Congrats. I vote for your kickin' chicken personally.

    Must go check out Feisty Foodie.

  2. I concur. kickin' chicken. Always makes me jealous when you have it.

  3. I wish we had a Trader Joe's nearby. I LOVE peanut butter filled pretzels, but I have yet to indulge in chocolate covered. I have a feeling it would be HEAVEN. EVIL EVIL HEAVEN!

    Yvo, your 200th should be special. Is there something you've NEVER put into a bento before?
