Bento Challenge Day 1

I did it - 6:30am and I finally met again - it'd been a while.

Bento making Day 1 complete. Making both lunches took ~ 30 mins, thank goodness I made the onigiri rice balls the previous night (is that cheating?). I faffed about a bit and wasted precious time rolling up salami carefully - which will not be happening again. 

Above: The Boy's Bento boxes, manly indeed.

Baby spinach salad with olive oil and balsamic dressing, cold steak leftovers, onigiri penguins with soya sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger, peanuts, salami, crackers, 3 types of cheese (absurd yes, but so good) and yogurt. 

I did get a bit fancy on day 1 - tomorrow is not as exciting i can assure you.

I'll post again tomorrow. School photo day - eeeuk!


  1. They look fantastic. You have really inspired me.

  2. Well done! They look so fabulous! And very healthy too :)

  3. Oh this is so cute! If it makes you smile when you open your lunch boxes at lunch time then it was all worth it. Quite a lot of my bento foods were leftovers - I always make too much for dinner - and it was fun to work out ways to serve it the next day for lunch.
