My first Bento Box by Tabascofanatikerin My first Bento Box by Tabascofanatikerin
Today in the morning I made my first bento box filling, ready for work.
And yes, it's not very pretty or beautifully arranged but for the first time I cared more about what comes in the box and how to make it.

What's in the box:

- Fried tofu, marinated in Teriyaki sauce
- Sushi rice with onigiri seeds topping (I planned real onigiri which are rice balls but the rice constantly fell apart :(. I have to find a better way or rice for the next time)
- One or two nori sheets (sea weed sheets, buried under the tofu *g*)
- Tamagoyaki (omelette which includes some leaf spinach soaked in little soy sauce)
- Cherry tomatoes
- Edamame (boiled soy beans, a little bit salt was added)

And of course the cup of green tea is NOT part of the bento ;) but it was my breakfast tea and it's a Japanese one so I thought it would fit well here in the picture.

Although I had to realize how much work and time you need to invest in a bento box this won't be my last. I won't do this every day but I have collected a lot of filling ideas already :)

Thank you very much :)
But why being "brave enough"? Sure it needs a little more time and work than making a sandwich for example but it can also be fun and is worth it when you can take a little compact "buffet" with you to school, work or whatever :)
What would you put in the box?

I just looked at your first bento and I wouldn't say that mine is better.
First: You succeeded with your onigiri ;)
Second: Your bento at least has some special design, mine is just a collection of food.
That's something! ;)
