A glut of bento update

I've not been keeping up with my bento posts for the past week which means a glut of bento pictures for this update. Here's a selection from the past two weeks:

Bacon and leek quiche, watercress, cherry tomatoes, grapes, and a strawberry container of oil and vinegar dressing.

Indigo said...

That strawberry shaped sauce container has to be the cutest thing in the world ^__^. Except maybe for those flower-shaped carrots...

Mahek: Thanks! Well, admittedly sometimes it's the boxes that make the lunch look good, heh ;)

Indigo: LOL why am I not surprised that the strawberry got you ;) It does look very sweet.

Those bentos look really good! I usually end up eating leftovers for lunches on work days.

Nilmandra said...

Kevin: My lunches are often leftovers too, just recycled in some form :) No point wasting good food, right?

Can you make my lunch box too! :p

Nilmandra said...

Tigerfish: Do you live close enough for delivery?? ;p

Chuck said...

WOW! My kids would be so impressed to get lunches like that. They sure beat out the peanut butter and jam.

What a fantastic selection of lunches. I am so envious! I really should make time to prepare proper lunches to take with me to work. All too often I resort to a hurried sandwich at my desk. I agree with Indigo - the strawberry sauce container is so cute!

Nilmandra said...

Chuck: Thanks! You can try varying the food you pack, although I do still pack sandwiches. Do check out the Bento Lunches community, there are always lots of people there with new ideas for lunch boxes.

Antonio: I find a nice lunch really makes a difference to my day :)

Every single one of those is gorgeous! I'd be more than happy to have one of those for any meal!
