Mini pita bento with a side of love!

Posted on by naku

Evenin' bentolings! Tonight's bento box was fairly easy. The only reason I was in the kitchen for an eternity was because I made loads of onigiri and some special heart shaped ones for the boxes. That and the fact that we have no dishwasher. It took me almost as long to do all the dinner/bento dishes as it did to cook and prepare everything. I actually daydream about owning a dishwasher again. Now that's sad. The homes here just...

Where am I?

Ahoy civilians! Sadly, no bentorific pic/update this evening. I don't think I can do them every night for fear of burning out.

Just this little teeny black and white puff. I'll have to try and sketch it. Nice dream! I was going to do something else...

Orc prison bento boxes

Posted on by naku

Tonight's bento boxes for tomorrow! Seeing as tomorrow is snow's last day of work at the orc prison to follow his dreams of harvesting unicorn sparkles (consult full time)... I thought it would be appropriate to make him an onigiri with this face: Tonight was supposed to be a speedy bento night, but I wanted to try the nori faces. It's fun and difficult/annoying at the same time! I'm already formulating ideas for really nice boxes, but I'll have...
