I've had an inspiration, after reading an article in the New York Times called Bento Boxes Win Lunch Fans, to make a bento lunch this weekend. My friend Jess is coming over for lunch on Sunday and she is my first dining guest in the new apartment. Unpacking my stuff from storage, I realized that I have tons of Japanese bowls and plates - perfect for a bento meal. Also many cute cookie cutters for shaping veg.
I am further inspired by the blog Adventure in Bento www.aibento.net.
Also found this fantastic website called I Love Bento for Bento supplies.
Stay tuned for photos of the meal and the apartment.
