    Thank you, thank you. *takes a bow*



    I do make most of what you see in the lunches. I live alone and tend to make full recipes, so I eat off the same things for a couple days in a row and often freeze extras. The sausages were made last weekend for a brunch. The cutlet I made a double recipe a couple months ago and put extras in the freezer for such an occasion as today where I needed a bit of protein to round out a meal in a pinch. Casseroles I tend to make, eat a few servings, and freeze the rest for easy future meals. I did not, however, make the chocolate kahlua pie which is finally gone. A friend brought that to my brunch and then left half with me!

    I do eat pre-made faux meats every once in a while, when I just don't feel like making them or don't have the time. But I much prefer to make things myself.

    Yeah, for me it's not so much inspiration as that I have to take a lunch everyday or I'll be having french fries and a dressing-less salad. It'd be fun to get decorative sometime though.

    Tomorrow: jerk tempeh, brown rice & peas, steamed collards, lime wedges, baby carrots, prunes & dried pineapple

    My first parcel of new bento supply cuteness arrived today... can't wait to get back to work

    BTW, there's a cute new page/shop about bento here: http://shop.iloveobento.com/

    The Japanese bits are extremely expensive IMHO, but they've also got laptop lunches.

    I ordered my bento box yesterday, couldn't resist the temptation any longer to have a 'proper' one rather than my ordinary tupperware. And will come in handy as I'll be spending long hours in the library for exam revision...

    @emmap & applepie: you could use any household rubber band to hold it together, I guess I'd provide you with some as I've got loads of bento accessories I never use but I keep on loosing the belts T_T

    Astrid, I love the Urara sets I've got the red variety, 'twas my very first bento box and still is my favourite one. Lovely for getting started!
    I've had it for two years and it's still in a very good shape (some of the cheaper boxes I bought after that aren't any more ).

    Hang on Mr VegCurry, isn't that MY slice of cake?

    Your first bento box looks great! Isn't it a good feeling when the box is all ready to go - they look so perfect it's almost a shame to start eating the contents!

    emmap your first bento box ROCKS! Did you find it filling? I think the size is deceptive - mine seems tiny, but when I've eaten everything in it I'm well stuffed! Yours is a different type to mine though, so not sure how they compare.

    Here we go, my first Bento!!!
    Not very imaginative, can't compete with your masterpieces, but I was still majorly stuffed from last night's birthday dinner and didn't want a substantial lunch.
    Salad in the bottom, and a wholewheat sandwich with yeast extract and tomato in the top, plus a box of raisins. Obviously, the nana didn't go in the box
    I can't wait to try out all the other things I have in mind - never thought that library lunches could be so exciting!
