Bentolicious #091
Yesterday afternoon, I received a package from Bento & Co. I bought 3 items from the gift certificate that I won from the Spring Bento Contest 2010. I can use these 3 items for my husband and my kids. Thanks a lot Thomas for the quick shipping. I really enjoy the gift.

I should tell the truth that I have never prepared bento for my husband. This will be my first time.
I would like to thank him for being so supportive and being the one who encouraged me to start blogging :) I used the Fukuro two-tier bento box that I think quite big for the kids but would be great for my husband. This bento ended up as his breakfast because he had a lunch meeting.

Inside the box : (bottom-tier) furikake + purple cabbages sprinkled on the top of the rice and flower shaped purple potatoes. I found other kind of purple potatoes. The center was white and purple on the outer circle ring. (upper-tier) mashed sweet potatoes, scallop & celery stir fry with garlic and lemongrass, cherry tomatoes, baby corn wrapped in black smoked ham, kamaboko, and daikon & carrot flowers.


yay, more cute stuff to add to your collection ^^

@noobcook : Thanks a lot Wiffy! Yup, more bento stuffs to add in my collection ... cool huh :)

So lovely, even your husband bento! You got beautiful sets -- can't wait to see you fill them with your spectacular style!

Oh I am NEVER going to show this bento to Saba Man. He might want you to start making his bento's instead of me. :)

Nice additions to your bento gear and you packed this beautiful wooden bento into a work of art!

@hapabento : hahaha ... Debra, no way! I'm learning from yours bento for SM. Actually the material of the box is plastic. It have this wood grain texture. So for me, this is easy to maintain compare to the wooden one. I don't have any wooden box BTW hehehe :) Thanks a lot Debra!
