My First Bento

Although I received Mr. Bento in record time last week, today is my first chance to sample his bento goodness. I hope this is enough food to keep me full all day. The variety is nice, though it was hard to choose what to put in the soup bowl as I didn’t have any premade dishes handy and I don’t keep canned soups or packaged foods around the house much. And I wish I made a little more rice than I did.

But it’s my first time, so I will give myself a break. Or something.

I’ll report back tomorrow on the first experience. I wonder if the hot will really stay hot and vice versa.
