Remember to Separate the Tofu

10 Aug

Simple Mac & Cheese

This was a fast and simple mac and cheese bento.  It shouldn’t have taken too long to make, but Little Sweet Pea was up, and whenever he is up that early in the morning, life is always a bit sweeter but more hectic.  After looking at the bento, I feel like I should have put some type of decoration in the tofu section, but ah well…  This bento is a perfect example of why you need to divide your food. Tofu is watery and needs to be separated from other food.  If you plan on putting tofu in your bento, be sure to separate it from other food, and keep it cool.  I generally always include an ice pack in Ms. Little Bubbles bentos, and today was no different.

I love this bento box (it is one of my favorite, and the first really good bento box that I purchased) because it has three divided sections.  Given the sections come out, I’ve also used them in other bento boxes.

Contents: Mac and Cheese, strawberries, tofu, and carrot flowers.
