I checked out a few dollar stores over the weekend and found these:
Oddly enough, at two different dollar stores... the larger box at one, the two smaller ones as a set at another. There were also a koala double-pack, and I wish I'd picked those up as well, now that I know what I'll use them for...
The small panda cups are the perfect size for a hardboiled egg... took one to work today! In fact, you can see an egg in the bottom one in the photo. ;)
My first unofficial bento... I call this my "snack set." The larger panda will be good for a nice-sized snack... probably about a cup and a half.
I'm finding I really like pandas-- taking over my sister's favorite childhood animal. I think it's the black and white contrast. Or maybe seeing Ling Ling and Sing Sing in the Washington zoo in 1990... I actually remember this because my sister was so excited. I think it was the highlight of her trip.
