Yet another "new" bento box pulled from the depths of cabinet clutter when I did that big clean-up a few weeks ago. This is a really simple (and cheap!) 2-tier bento box. I've had it forevah, but I think this is the first time I've used it (as far as posting it on the blog).
Enough chitter-chatter. The goods:
The top tier: clementine orange and apple slices.
The apple slices were dipped in lemon juice to prevent browning and I flip-flopped the slices to make a visually interesting pattern in the bento box. The clementine is topped with a tiny fruit leather flower and secured with a bento pick.
The top tier: in one silicone cup there are grilled chicken chunks, leftover from dinner, in another silicone cup there are a couple cheddar cheese birds (the scraps tucked under them), with some pretzels squeezed in the gaps.
The bento pick is kind of neat, because from the top it looks like a flower (as seen in first picture), but from the side, surprise! It's a frog-esque turtle dude.
Ethan and I agree he kinda looks like a baby Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. :) This top tier comes with a really nice lid that seals it nicely, but it wouldn't fit with that pick sticking up so high, so the turtle dude had to come out and was just laid beside the orange (at Ethan's request) before sealing the bento up for transport.
This bento box and bento pick set were ordered from ATFS.
