I know it isn't exactly bento-style, but it was homemade, and I took it in for lunch, and it was damn delicious. I've been feeling under the weather for about a week now (my throat is bothering me; it started off dry & scratchy then went to worse until I practically lost my voice, and it is still just petering out now... waiting to completely feel better...). So the other day, not sure how to use some of my CSA goodies, I just threw a bunch of things in a pot and called it vegetable soup. It was really good, slightly spicy, and super soothing to my sore, dry throat. I swear I felt better in just minutes after the first bowl. Too bad I finished it so quickly. (This is only a portion of it.)
Surprisingly, I heated this to simmering in the morning, then portioned it into this container, shut the container, and wrapped it up in a plastic bag for transport... and it was still warm by lunch time, 6 hours later! Weird, right? I didn't put it in anything insulated, either!
So, just "veggie soup" is in there.
Think outside the lunchbox!!!
