The Japanese know how to do packed lunches......buy a ready filled bento box in supermarkets or create your own lunches and store them in your reusable bento box. Plenty of blogs out there focus on bento box lunches.
A friend and I recently ordered a bento box each from Casa Bento and they arrived on Friday. Now the challenge will be to make exciting lunches that fit in the boxes....any suggestions welcome.
I bought an Ojue box by Metaphys that I first saw over on Spoon and Tamago. The Ojue lunchbox stacks vertically and therefore allows it to be carried in the slimmest of bags. It comes in 3 sections which can be used individually or together, depending on the size of your lunch.
It also comes with a matching pair of chopsticks, that fold up and fit in a small compartment in the lid.
Tomorrow will be the first outing of the bento box - probably giant couscous with roasted veggies.......and perhaps some strawberries!
Now if I could just get my hands on a Black and Blum Lunch Pot - my future lunches would be complete!
