Dec 22, 2009: Bentos
I was checking out The GFCF Lady, and clicked a link to a company that sells those Bento lunch boxes. That site has a picture gallery.

I have one of those laptop lunch kits, mine is never that cute! Dangit, maybe I should draw some eyes on my hard boiled eggs

When Classicman and I split an Archie McPhee box last year (or was it this year), I got custody of a Parasite Pals Lunch Kit.

Meh - slap a lid on, put in kids school bag, send kid to school, wait three or four hours, remove lid. I'll bet it doesn't look pretty by then...

Killer Thai curry paste--forget Thai Kitchen
I clicked the GFCF link and liked what I saw, but the paste is an abomination to me!

Why yes, we own three of them.

ACh! Forgot to add that you should add Sriracha chili sauce if you want more kick.

I don't see any bacon or Big Macs. What kind of lunch is that, without that stuff, or coke or chocolate shake?

Pardon me for asking, but what makes the lunches that *don't* look like something cute or kitschy bento?
Clodfobble Tuesday Dec 22 11:26 PM
I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly, Els... but being a "bento" lunch refers mostly to the idea of multiple, reusable containers that fit tightly inside one larger container. The cutesy food design part of bento is just a side effect of being Japanese; they can't help it.

Bentos. Is that what you get when you ask for menthos with a blocked nose?

Every now and again I look at the assortment of HelloKitty bentos and think that it might be cool to get one, then I realize that in order to take a meal capable of sustaining American Human Life I would need at least two or three of them, and go back to looking at the HK cellphone charms (one of which hangs off my stethoscope along with my Saint Dymphna medal) and other swag.

I reckon she could, but she'd do it the pyrotechnical way.

Thanks, Clod. For some reason I was under the impression that bento was an art form, not a lunch package.

"I'd like to unpack your bento, it looks like you've got more than enough for lunch!"
