Mardi Gras Bento Box

Posted on February 16, 2010 by Debra


“Laissez les bons temps rouler!”

That’s the chant down in New Orleans for Fat Tuesday. 
Today’s featured bento is in celebration of Mardi Gras!  Saba Man will be partying with vegetarian fried rice omelette, carrots, sweet potato, snap peas, cucumbers and tomatoes.  

 I know…he’s a wild one that Saba Man!  LOL.

We are also excited to use new bento “stuffs” from some very nice bento friends. 

“Let the good times roll!”

    LOL, cute! So what does “bons temps” mean? For a little bit there I thought you’d made a True Blood bento, since it takes place in Bon Temps.

    • hapabento says:

      Oh I didn’t even think of the True Blood connection. LOL! I don’t know what it means, “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” is the Cajun French translation for “Let the good times roll”. It’s not the French spoken in France.

      A True Blood bento is a fantastic idea… lot’s of ketchup. LOL

    Very cute! I was going to do a Mardi Gras bento today, too, but I’m getting over a doozy of a cold so I don’t feel very motivated. XD

    Looks wonderful! What a fun way to celebrate Mardi Gras!

    And bons temps just means good times :D The translation for that is easy because the words match up exactly unlike most translations :D
