I finally made my first bento on Sunday for work. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to test it out because if something wasn’t right, or if it wasn’t enough food, I had the opportunity to run out and get something else to eat. That’s not always an option during the week! Without further ado, my first bento:
The bottom tier is flower shaped peanut butter sandwiches. I had pickles in a small container on the side for these… I can’t do regular peanut butter sandwiches, but I tried originally with my butterfly cutter and PB&J, and well, the butterflies just looked like they had headwounds. Then we have cheese and crackers.
The top tier has cheesecake filling, grapes, and teddy grahams.
I actually ate this bento in two different sittings, which ended up working out pretty well. If I’d wanted to eat it all at once, it definitely would have been too much cheese and crackers. But not bad for my first bento, if I do say so myself. I think every bento I pack will teach me a little bit… like this one I learned to pack half the cheese and crackers and put veggies or something in the rest of that space!
