Feisty Bento #300

Well, it's here.


Nothing as elaborate or fancy as some other bloggers might do... but it will be delicious, and I'm still proud of my creation.

I did a throwback to #100 by using my Mr. Bento again.

And a throwback to #200 by creating "food art" and the number of my bento in the bento.

Combined the two.  Here we go~


Here is my appetizer and dessert.  Watercress soup for the appetizer and half an orange sliced up for dessert.


Main course and side dish: soy-glazed salmon and soba salad (recipes to come this Friday on Feisty Foodie!). 

Close up of the soba salad reveals:


"300" cut out of seaweed!  Well, sort of.  I ran out of seaweed a LONG time ago, so I went and bought some quickly, but I bought the wrong brand.  I mean, I knew it wasn't the brand I normally buy, but I couldn't find the brand I liked and figured this would be placeholder.  Anyway, cutting this Korean brand of seaweed... well let's just say I don't think I'll be cutting seaweed anytime soon.  It's so fiddly!  The 3 is made of three (hah! I just noticed that) separate parts and sticking them down was hard work!  The hearts serving as 0's were done using a cutter of course.  Hahaha.  Simple enough, right? 

I am embarking upon a challenge that will affect my bentos, so stay tuned to find out what it is.  (Here's a hint: it's both terrifying and exciting at the same time for someone like me...) 

Happy bento!!!

PS I leave you with this, a video of my dog with the new toy Daddy bought her.  She does not like sharing.


  1. 1. Congrats on #300. You inspire me to keep going.

    2. If your challenge is hinting at what you wrote on Facebook, I've been eagerly awaiting this. I'm interested to see how it goes since I'm considering a not-quite-similar-but-sorta-related challenge for myself in March (must e-mail you about this, eerie how we seem to think the same things re: bento sometimes).

    3. That is the world's cutest dog indeed. Mine don't share either sometimes.

  2. Yae for 300! I have a confession, I have just started leaving comments, but I have been reading your blog since the beginning of last year, and I get alot of lunch ideas from this. That salmon looks absolutely yummy! Time seems to be going by fast, you will be on #400 before you know it...
