Bentos B4 the Blog, part 2 of 4

Here is the second of a few of the bento made way before this blog…

First grownup bento

The First Grownup Bento (April 6, 2010)

I hate carrying lots of stuff with me to work, so I decided to give it a try for myself in a container I could cram in my bag without my lunch suffering the consequences.  I used an undivided click-top container that we already had on hand and still use it from time to time.  This bento included my first bento-specific purchase – silicone baking cups.  Although I have bought more shapes and sizes of cups, they are my “go-to” divider in almost every box. Although I was getting better at filling spaces, I certainly still had some things to learn about packing.

Ingredient List:  spinach quiche, strawberry, cup of grapes, dressing, field greens, bell pepper slices

Tools:  a snap-top container, silicone cup divider, small metal cup, Wüstof paring knife


  • The Good: a very yummy lunch with good variety
  • The Bad: poorly packed
  • The Ugly: using the metal cup for the dressing was an awful idea, it spilled and the dressing tasted funny
