Gasp! My Second Bento and It’s Not Pretty

19 Oct

My 2nd Bento

This is the second bento I ever made, and I look at it in horror now.  The biggest mistake I made here is the pudding in the uncovered cup.  When I made this for Ms. Little Bubbles, she was young, and thus the small amount of food.  But still, there is little substance and it just looks a bit unbalanced to me.  I think I just had my Little Sweet Pea, and I’m sure I was a bit tired when I made this.  Or at least that’s the story I’m sticking too.  However, there is an important lesson to be learned from my mistake, don’t include a pudding or a liquid type of food within your bento without a lid.  It could have spilled, contaminated other food and just made a big mess of things.

Contents: Imitation crab sticks (it was her favorite at the time), small hot dogs, edamame, strawberries and pudding

    I think it looks great, especially for a 2nd bento, and you should be proud! I keep my early ones on my Flickr photostream to see how far I’ve come.

      Thanks Sheri. Isn’t it funny when you look back at what we first did. 🙂 My how are styles have changed. I’m sure they will continue to change over time too. BTW, you were a huge inspiration for me when I was first learning! 🙂
