There's a new craze happening right now called bento boxes. In Japan, it's a big thing and if you google bento, you will see just how amazing they can be.

On the NSBR board at 2Peas, there are a bunch of ladies who share their bento inspiration every week. It's a lot of fun to read through and see their pictures. Love it.

I bought a Hello Kitty bento box off Ebay a couple weeks ago. It arrived last week and I haven't had a chance to play with it until now. It's really small. SO small, that I could only fit some fruit and veggies in it. I've already ordered another box that is much bigger so I can put all of Paige's lunch in it.

Last night I picked up some things at the commissary to put in her box for lunch today. It is SO CUTE!!!!! I can see this is going to become a new obsession for me. I might even have to start a sister blog just for bento'ing.

Check it out!

Hi... we just got our first bento for my 11 YO DD... only bad thing is the lid warped. She cried. It's still usable, but we'll have to buy that buckle thing. Haven't done anything creative with it yet, tho.
