Me and Mr. Bento

I'm so excited - my new lunchbox was delivered today! He's a Mr. Bento by Zojirushi, and I love him already. You will too, look:

Here he is - soup bowl, main dish bowl, and two little side dishes.

They all stack up nicely inside the stainless container - two hot bowls on the bottom, two cold sides on the top. Snap the lid on and look how cute that is!

Here is Mr. Bento inside his zipper bag, with the "forked spoon" and its holder on the counter. The holder goes inside the bag in its own little pocket, which tickles me to no end.

Zipped up and ready to go. How cute is this? I will test it out and make some fabulously healthy and balanced lunches - stay tuned for pictures. I was going to buy the Ms. Bento, which comes in cute colors, but the soup bowl is even smaller than here with the original Mr. Bento, which is already only 9 oz so it's small. Japanese meal planning apparently calls for small side soups as opposed to soup as the main dish.

Bento boxes are so cute.

The internet is full of gorgeous/delicious bento setups, too. is my favorite, but there are a lot of neat ones out there.

These don't look like food anymore, and are awesome but not as tasty looking, to me:

Fun. My friend went to India and sent me back the Indian equivalent of a bento box - it's adorable, though too small for a lunch for ravenous me. It's so cute, though.
