My first bento of 2009. Left Top: Dried cranberries, roasted almonds, and chocolate almonds. Left Bottom: Boiled egg with carrot flowers, surrounded by broccoli. Right Side: Cheese flowers on a salad of lettuce, carrots, cucumber, and chickpeas.
I used my new Chococat bento box which I purchased for $8.95 from a Sanrio store in Florida. I was excited to see a Sanrio store there, since the one in the mall near my house closed down a few years ago (in Maryland). I also scored a Chococat bolster pillow! Anyway, here are some photos of the box...it comes with a tiny fork and spoon, and has a locking top just like my beloved Lock & Lock containers.
All closed up and ready to go:
