New to Bento/Lunch in a Box

Postby photogrl13 » Sat Sep 25, 2010 11:15 am

Hey all! Finally got my account activated (thanks Biggie!) and can post on the forums. I'm new to the whole bento thing and it's been really fun so far. I got a box from my hubby for my birthday and managed to get some more accessories/boxes from the local Japanese market and gift store. Today's bento: Three mini corn dogs, sticky rice formed into a heart, star, and bear, peas and carrots, pineapples and two chocolate chip cookies. I've been packing every day that I'm out of the house, which ends up being 6 days a week. I'll probably post some photos when I get a chance. I've photographed every one so far! :D I'm excited to talk with people that don't think I'm crazy hahaha!

Perhaps I should chime in on the "You are definitely not crazy" thing!

You have photographed your bentos? Maybe you should share them with the rest of us.

Those look like yummy lunches! Good job! :)

Thank you for giving the url for your photographs. I don't know, maybe I am a more visual sort of person, because the pictures really help me to know what is going on. :geek:

Keep up the good work!!
