The 3 minute bento...

I almost didn't even bother to post this one since it's ugly, uninspired, and probably really doesn't qualify as a bento; other than being packed in a bento box ;P lol

I made baked ziti for dinner last night - it was probably my best ever.  When I asked Rob if he wanted a bento or just leftover ziti, he said 'ziti is fine' - so, since this box is microwave safe, I decided to just pack it in it.  Hopefully, being cheesy, it doesn't ruin the box (but if it does, I'll just have to replace it - the lid is starting to fade a bit anyway, even though it is supposed to be dishwasher safe :P  As you may have noticed, I use this box a lot!)

In the bottom tier, he has a salad w/ a couple halved grape tomatoes, a piece of wheat garlic bread and some strawberries.  I see a lot of red, beige and green - definitely no 5-color bento here!

We have a friend visiting from Cali who has requested a bento while he's here, so hopefully there will be something much better to post in the next week! ;)

Happy Bento-ing!


  1. That's not ugly at all! Where did you find the microwavable box? I send a glass container with Mr. Man to work because he always gets leftovers and I couldn't find a plastic one.

  2. Thanks! :)
    This one came from - I have also seen it in Mitsuwa here in NJ.

  3. the salad looks fresh and delicious... ^^
