Bento box

There’s something about the bento box that I love. It’s a whole different way of thinking about packed meals that goes far beyond the concept of a sandwich and chips. Bento lunches are compartmentalized meals that incorporate a lot of creativity — at least as far as a typical American lunch is concerned. Originally Japanese, they can be filled with any kind of foods.
Here’sa great FAQ about bento boxes.This little lunch box is very cute. I found the project at larkcrafts.com.
