Blueberries! They add POP! to a bento

Humm... My First OK Bento

Okay, so this is what I consider my first “OK” bento.  After my pudding mishap, I searched for a bento box that would separate my food with inner containers.  I found this box online at Marukai and love, love, love it!  I was so paranoid at the time that I would never find another bento box like this, that I ordered two!  I still have a spare in my pantry.

When I got this bento box, I remember studying (call me crazy) other bloggers and bento books trying to see and understand the style that I like and how I would like to present my food.  One thing I really liked about this bento was the color.  For the longest time, I insisted on putting blueberries in Ms. Little Bubbles bentos because it made for a much more beautiful bento.  But she hates blueberries!  And given the cost of a small box, I had to give up my blue.  😦 This particular bento had too much food for my Little Bubbles, but she did like it.  🙂
