Bento #23 – Cute Snack Bento

Today I just needed a snack bento for lunch, so I decided it would be great time to use my cute cupcake themed bento box. Because I normally need to pack larger lunches, I have rarely used this small box.

I bought some canned mock abalone and felt it was finally time to try it out. I stir fried a few of them with some cabbage, carrots, bell pepper, onion, and green onion and added some spicy teriyaki sauce and they turned out really good. I’ll do a full review later, but here’s the bento.hellokitty
On the left there’s the stir fry and on the right there’s baby carrots, tomatoes, a small fig, soy yogurt, and a cute little hello kitty container with raw pumpkin seeds, almonds, and soy nuts.

Here’s the picture of the hello kitty container. Jason got 2 of them for me for my birthday and this was the first time I was able to use it. I think it’s so cute!

I also entered this bento in a competition, click here to check it out.

Bento #4

Yesterday I got my new bento box in the mail. I was very excited about it, so even though I still had a bit of food left over for lunch today at work, I thought I’d go ahead and make a snack bento in my new box. I found that my new silicone heart shaped cupcake baking cups worked great in my new box and fit the theme perfectly!

Here’s a picture of the bento box with a pencil to show how small it is.

I think I’m getting better at making the bento attractive, but I still have a ways to go before I’ll be doing beautiful charaben. I also read up on food safety and found foods that will help keep everything fresh and safe throughout the day. That’s why the little key lime is added in there with the fruit. I also thought the lime juice would be good on the strawberries or in the tea.

This is my first entry in my new blog. I made this blog to showcase the different vegan meals I make and the sewing/craft projects that I do.

Here’s a little info about me. I have been vegan for almost 6 years and enjoy making all types of meals for myself and boyfriend. I am also a fashion design major at UIW in San Antonio. I have one year to go and am very excited about finishing up my degree.

One of the reasons that inspired me to start this blog is that last night I just won (on ebay) my first bento box and I’m really excited about it. I can’t wait until it comes in and I can post pictures of all the cute bento meals I make. I won’t have any new meals to post in the next few days because I am working and going on a little vacation, but once I get back I’ll start posting more.

Here’s a picture of the bento box that I ordered.
