Introductory Post

Hi everyone. :)

I've been making bentos for my boyfriend, but I've never really thought about taking pictures of it until I found this community.

In any case, because of all the pretty food that everyone has been posting photos of, I'm inspired to start cooking and assembling bentos again! I haven't done either in a while due to work and because our current apartment is a bit cramped. Hehe...

Anyway, for lack of a decent bento pic, here's a photo of a three-tier food box (not sure if you can still call it a bento... unless you're packing food for 6 people...) that I bought from a flea market some time last year for 50 pesos (around 1 US dollar). The three layers can be detached from the carrier. The plush toy is just there for the cute factor. ^_^;;

The food container (I'll call it that for now until I get a go signal from someone that it IS considered a bento) was used a few weeks after being bought for my partner's birthday get-together, where all three layers were filled with california maki. Though it can't be seen in the pic, the wasabi that came with the maki were molded into the shape of leaves, with two leaves per tier. (Also, as I just noticed in this pic, one of our guests got impatient and ate one of the maki before I can take a picture...)
