Bento Boxes

A little while ago my good friend, the Guerrilla Gourmand, sent me a link from the New York Times on bento boxes. I meant to post it sooner, but you know how things get lost in internet-land. The images below are from Flickr member, bentomom. There were so many adorable photos to choose from - these are really just the tip of the iceberg. I even unwittingly stumbled into the land of "bento porn", seriously - it's out there.

How lucky are these kids? Their luches look delicious and so creative. If you'd like to do a little more reading on all things bento, then check out the blog, Just Bento.

Happy Thursday!

  5. I love bento boxes! I'm glad they're getting more press lately. There was a small group of kids at the summer camp I worked at this past summer who always made a point of coming over to see what I'd packed for lunch :) My favorite bento site is http://lunchinabox.net
