Warning: The following Bento's are still rough around the edges!
Bento is the art of a lunch box. In Japan many women pack intricate lunches for their loved ones, but here at River-Rose, there have been days my kids are lucky to get a PB & J in a sandwich bag!Recently, I ordered Bento Boxes for them and at first was afraid that it would take too much time and that I would be up late at night re-creating the Mona Lisa from bits of Bologna. So I made a secret promise to myself to not be a Bento perfectionist (which is a promise easy to keep)!
My kids love all things sea food, and unfortunately it seems the more expensive it is, the more they love it. At the store, rather than pleading for candy, they beg for prawns and crab. The solution? Inexpensive, imitation crab meat. I bought a package for about $3, and have made Sushi, Noodles and Krabby Patties with it for their lunches.
