Bento #6 - the new box put to use :)

When I have a new bentobox I can't wait to use it. So I prepared my boyfriends dinner bento in it for tonight. He has the 2PM till 10PM shift so that means he needs more food then on his other shifts. I am still on the lookout for a nice and big box since this one didn't really met the expectations. However it was nice to fill it up anyway ;)

It holds five spice rice (I was surprised how much rice I could fit in the bottom tier), mandarin slices and sammy's from white bread and pumpernickel bread with paprika spread in between.

And a close up from the bread on my new long picks :) They are really nice for things like this and I am very happy I bought those!

Since the new box was smaller then expected I made a snack bento for him to take along. The only thing is that all my tiny bento boxes are pink.. I hope my boyfriends colleagues won't tease him too much even though there is a cool Cheshire cat on the lid ;) The snackbento contains the other half of the mandarin, apple slices, chocolate-biscuit cake and koala cookies.

Tomorrow we will be going out to dine in a sushi restaurant with a large group of volunteers who helped us out at the Dutch Abunai! convention. This is an anime and Japanese culture convention which is held each year and I am a staff member there. I am looking forward to it very much :) But there won't be a bento tomorrow since my boyfriend has take the day off so he can come to the dinner as well. So I see you all in a day or two :)

Oh I almost forgot! The Blogging mum cooks is having a giveaway! Be sure to check out her very pink set!


  1. Hi! I came here through bento central.
    *babykins likes bento*,too!
    I always think the taste is more important than the cuteness for bento.
    Your bentos are attractive enough!

  2. I LOVE the Chestire Cat bento box! How cute and fun. Hope your boyfriend appreciates it. :)

  3. He does :) But he hid it under the table while eating so his co-workers couldn't see the very pink box ;)
