I have a confession to make… I bought a bento set. It’s the Natural Leaf set and it’s adorable. It arrived at my house probably a week ago. That’s not the confession part… the confession is I still haven’t used it. Part of the problem is that I don’t really have any bento foods in my apartment, and I haven’t had the chance to go grocery shopping. I joked with Loretta about making a bento out of a Lean Cuisine pizza, or a PB&J and Cheez-It bento. But that’s not really what I’m after… and I need to go to the grocery store to get things like celery, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, grapes, etc. etc. etc.
I’m also having a bit of performance anxiety. Now that I have my bento box in hand, I’m starting to think this might not be as easy as it looks. I’m scared! I look at all the lunches posted at BentoYum and the Bento Lunch community, and then my performance anxiety increases! But I promised Retta I’d make a bento soon, and I will… even if it has to be a PB&J and Cheez-It bento.
