white chicken nuggets, mini sausage roll, potato smile, edamame, strawberries, and a huge container of ketchup!

We visited Daiso in Richmond the other day and I must say, $2 is a pretty good deal for a bento box!  The one I bought above though, is $4.  I really liked the fact it had a divider and it had a tighter fitting sealed lid than some of the other ones.  That being said, you can still buy a decent bento box for $2.
Bebe likes food in small portions but she likes variety.  She also appreciates food separated...and not touching I think.  However, she isn't totally weird about it and fortunately eats food mixed up in general.  I think all the fancy bento doodads are fun to use and colourful and that's part of it. 

Since Bebe loves ketchup, I bought a set of bigger sealed containers (under the potato smiley face) and she should be a happy camper now.  Nothing worse than running out of ketchup for your chicken nuggies!

I have a bunch of posts that have been piling up that I need to work on... a bday cake, my desire for an Illy espresso machine, and of course another cookie recipe.  I'll be back!

sigh, yes, it's one of those thing where you get sucked into, like a black hole. I now have way too many bento supplies and lots of bento boxes of various sizes. It should last me a while! Hope you have fun with it!
