Mr. Bento Buzz - We've been Noticed

Surprised? Much! According to BuzzFeed, as of this morning, this blog was among the best links on the Internet on Mr. Bento topics.

Mr. Bento - September 28, 2007

Usually, I pack Mr. Bento up the night before, but I had a late night out yesterday. So, today, I got out of bed 10 minutes early and threw this together.

Here is what I packed from Friday, September 28, 2007. The onion cheese in with the tomatoes is from an Amish market in Germantown, MD. The black rice ume onigiri was thawed out from a stash I'd made earlier. With the carrots, it almost looks like Halloween. The yogurt has a sliced plum. The olives are stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes, and have mini sweet pickles with them.

Mr. Bento - September 11, 2007

I copied Biggie's foil idea for my Mr. Bento entree for Tuesday. It'll keep my hand grease-free when eating the chicken leg. In the entree bowl is corn, tinged pink from being too near some beets, along with tomatoes and a habanero saucefish. The side dish is butternut squash soup with cinnamon. Dessert are grapes and cheddar cheese.

...and a moose.

Mr. Bento - September 4, 2007 #2

This is a fuzzy attempt at an outdoor shot. I think the camera focused on something other than the food

Mr. Bento - September 4, 2007

Goodbye, Labor Day. The workweek starts on Tuesday, September 4, 2007, with these contents for my Mr. Bento.

Our youngest son is still home from college (quarter system = late start). He went camping with a couple of college friends, so we made them french toast; leftovers for breakfast on the Mr. Bento.

The pierogies, beets, and havarti are from an Amish market in Germantown, Maryland. I made the pierogies as heart-healthy as I could, frying them in SmartBalance and topping them with fat-free yogurt.

Here is the line-up: challah, orange bell pepper, havarti cheese, yellow tomatoes, pickled beets, pickled herring, sauerkraut and potato pierogies wth fried onions, french toast, and maple syrup.
