Bento Box Lunches

While I try and bring my lunch most days to school, there is always that occasional hectic morning when I dash out the door empty handed, and must resort to buying elementary-school lunch. Now, while the quality of said lunches has improved, is not quite the desirable lunch fare an adult would crave...welll, except for maybe waffle day...

I love how these Bento Boxes, originally used for Japanese-style lunches, have been reinvtented as chic lunch compartments. Don't the individual compartments and colors jazz up the ingredients of a homemade lunch? Might just have to buy one of my own!

those are awesome. I need one, I've been SO GOOD lately about bringing my lunch (and breakfast!) to work, I should reward myself!

Great find!! Love 'em!

oh, this is so cute! It's also a great way to be in charge of portions--something I have trouble with in the dessert compartment!

I've actually been wanting to get one too! I love the idea of them.

such a good idea. & then you don't have to worry about anything getting squished before lunch time!

i HATE packing lunch. luckily we have a fridge and microwave so i can just bring leftovers or something to cook pretty fast but homemade sandwhiches just doesnt cut it for me

Oh my gosh, I LOVE bento boxes!! I ordered one from Japan a couple of summers ago and had so much fun packing lunches in it. My creativity started to run out though, and sometimes I just longed for a sandwich (which wouldn't fit in mine), so it's been sitting on a shelf for a while now. But after seeing these lovely photos I may have to dust it off and get inspired again =)
