my second new bento box! The main bento is another two-tier
box, which came with the small tray inside the
larger one. Which had a still-smaller container inside
that, and another inside that, and finally a little
bitty sauce container. It was like taking apart a matryoshka
doll! The largest three pieces are pictured here; the
smaller ones weren't needed this time around. Oh, and
the thing also came with little chopsticks which fit
on the lid, and a drawstring bag. That's quite a change
from my usual knotted-off Kroger plastic bag.
As with yesterday's box, this thing is not large,
so I had to consider what to pack. So, here we have
omurice - that's just
short of a full omelet there, BTW - baked
purple sweet potato, steamed broccoli, mango,
and boiled chestnuts.
And if you look closely, You'll see I used a slice of
mountain bread as a divider in the
largest container. White mountain bread is pretty dense,
so as long as the food isn't very wet it works just
fine as a divider. Jelly tastes funny with broccoli,
Not pictured: ketchup packets for the omurice. I
use fast food ketchup packets because on the rare occasions
I go to Wendy's or Chick-Fil-A I always end up with
too many, and I hate to throw out perfectly good condiments.
And, hey, they save me the trouble of having to wash
out another container.
