How are you doing? Moscow is huge, pretty tough and honestly, I’m happy to come home tomorrow. Nevertheless I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences with you guys!
This is a quick and hearty Bento I made shortly before leaving for Moscow. I was lurking around on tumblr and came across some breathtaking pictures of Bento that were so inspiring that I just had to get up and do one myself.
There is no special reason why I chose this Bento box but I noticed that I had only used it once so I gave it a second chance. You’ve probably seen that most of my boxes are square and black and that I rarely use “cute” boxes although I really would like to! I just find it so much easier to choose the right colors and arrange them in a square box.. and a black background makes all the colors look much more vivid because of the contrast! An other reason is, that I want most of my Bento meals look traditional and using a traditionally shaped and colored boxes is very helpful for that.
I obviously love this Neko Bento box but because of the reasons I wrote above, I never really used it. Anyway, I will try to incorporate some of my never seen bento boxes in my future Bento meals! Hope you don’t mind…
As you cans see, it’s a rather tasty Bento for a rather hungry person. Teriyaki chicken with Goma, wok vegetables and three little pickles in one tire and pimped up Tamagoyaki with some rocket and ketchup and two small Mediterranean skewers with Italian cheese, bell pepper and olives. I used rocket and parsley as decoration and to fill the gaps.
