My plan is to start bento in January... I'll be beginning a new job in the first or second week of January, so, in order to have something to look forward to and something fun for lunches, I'm holding off on bento 'til then. I do have one I made for a trip, so I'll post that... when my camera reappears.
However, I did go to an Asian grocery store a few weekends ago and picked up lots of great stuff: nori, furikake, sushi rice, mirin, soy sauce, some pocky, and a few other fun things. I'm all ready to bento!
