Announcing the Back-to-School Bento Winner 2

Posted on September 19, 2011 by Debra

A big thank you to all the participants!  If you missed them, you can still see them on my Facebook page here.    They were all winners in my book but there was one bento that gathered the “likes” and that is this one from Angelene!  Congratulations to you and please show us what you do with your prize bento box  from Japanistic.com.

I also want to thank the nice folks from Japanistic who donated the adorable Elpha 2-tier onigiri set and matching chopsticks for our prize.   Did you know that they have more than bento boxes on their site? Yep, they offer the cutest, the coolest, fun, well-designed Japanese products on the world-wide-web!  Please check them out.

Back to School Bento 6

Posted on August 13, 2011 by Debra

Another Back-to-School bento idea for today’s post.  How about ravioli and sausage? Yes!!!

And packed in one of my most favorite Elph boxes from Japanistic.

Today’s bento is filled with mushroom ravioli, vegetarian sausage, asparagus, carrots, bit’s of smoked mozzarella and a cherry tomato.

If you decide to pack a similar bento just remember to keep things light and not add too much sauce.  And you can add almost any type of vegetable if asparagus in not a favorite.

For more ideas visit my Back-to-School page for tips and suggestions.

Also, I’ll be announcing a contest in a  few days where you will have a chance to win a cute bento box from our friends at Japanistic!
