bento #30

This past weekend I was at a board game convention.  I love to play strategy board games (heard of Settlers of Catan?  Ticket to Ride?  those kind of games), so we spent Friday afternoon/evening and all day Saturday gaming.  I, of course, being frugal, packed bentos to eat during the convention.

- chicken and veg dumplings (from Asia Mart) and a cherry tomato
- baby carrots
- grapes, with pandas for company
- meatballs, more protein!

If I were to rearrange this bento, I'd put the two dull-colored items on the ends and carrots in the middle.  Overall, not a very colorful bento.


  1. Oh wow. We were on the same brainwave at some point. My lunch has little to no color.

    However, that's awesome about the convention! Your food is definitely a lot better (and a heck of a lot cheaper) than stuff they sell at conventions... If it wasn't because I was flying to my next convention, I'd totally pack my own lunch.

    On a last note, that box is super cute. Do you remember where you got it?

  2. I got it from All Things for Sale; it's a lock-and-lock box that comes in a little cooler. Watertight, and microwaveable/dishwasher safe.
