After cyrena’s post with the picture of her favorite Bento box, I decided to go look at information about these. Now I really want to try this out myself. I found an awesome Instructables on making Bento here. It seems like a great way to bring lunch, and it lends itself to healthy food also.
I don't know if I can find a box around here, although there is a sizable Asian market in Cary. From what I've seen, you don't really need an actual Bento box to do it. Hmmm.
