Pasta Bento

Me and some of my friends entered the Bento&co competition. Sadly we didn’t make it into the top 20.

We decided we should do a hop to show off all of our entries ( so you can see what you’re missing out on :p )
By clicking the button below you will be able to go from blog to blog until you go full circle and end up back here.

Anyway here is the bento I entered :


It contains spaghetti bolognese, mixed vegetables, instant cucumber tsukemono , cubed egg and edible cheese “Baran” 🙂

Click the image below to see what Sarah at Blame it in the bento has prepared 🙂

And a huge thank you to Cristi from Bent On Better Lunches for making my pic look prettier 🙂


Winnie the Pooh cookie cube and meatless mince!

Tomorrow is A.A.Milne’s birthday and to celebrate me and some of my fellow BBF buddies are doing what we do best, making lunches.
We will be having a Winnie the Pooh (and anything else linking to Milne) bento linky party 🙂

I saw a product I’ve wanted for ages but didn’t particularly need, now is defiantly a time in which I’ll need it, the product?

A Winnie the Pooh cookie cutter cube!

A great product for only £2!

I also bought some “meatless mince” from Iceland ( I thought I’d picked up Quorn… I was wrong) luckily it was delicious, maybe more so than Quorn and definitely more tasty ( and easier to cook!) than Iceland’s own brand mince. And at £2 for 1KG you can’t go wrong!


I made my Winnie bento as soon as I got in as I couldn’t wait!

Here is a sneak peek!


5 for Friday! 17/08/12


So here is today’s 5 for Friday entry.

It seems like noone else from the bento family is doing this anymore 😦

But if you’d like to join in feel free!!!

So this bento was inspired by this video, such a genius idea if you cant find a bento box and also saves on space so great for handbags/ manbags.

This bento includes white, salted rice, scrambled egg soboro, mince beef soboro, carrot Sakura, and mixed peppers 🙂

Hope you enjoy!

Finally..a see-through tumbler!


I have been looking for a see-through tumbler for a good few months. What started the search?
This genius video!! Everyone, myself included, thinks of bento as being a one portion meal in a box, but what if the box wasn’t a box? What if it was a tumbler?

The video shows how you can use a tumbler as a bento container for a soboro meal as well as one with burgers etc. It is genius and I must admit I’m a little jealous that I didn’t think of it!

Now any tumbler will do but I wanted a see-through one as I want to see people’s expressions when they notice the multiple different coloured layers and realise its not filled with drink.

This tumbler cost £3.99 from TKMaxx, although there was an identical one priced at £5.99, and I wasn’t intending on paying £2 more for the same thing.
It’s made by Aladdin,which makes me think it will last a bit longer, and holds 400ml.

So now my hunt has come to an end you can expect a bento pic of my soboro tumbler soon!
