This week's bento comes from Flickr user pantherathecat. I wanted to highlight it because I love its simplicity. For those that think they can't create bentos, this box really says you can. It's a simple layer of leftover beans and rice topped with leaf and acorn shaped slices of Colby-jack cheese. I hope you find inspiration in this lunch!
This week's bento comes from Makiko Itoh of Just Bento. Although she already runs Just Hungry, she's started a new site dedicated to bento. So far she's had a few how-tos, bento under 20 minutes, and a bunch of other great info including this guide to onigiri rice ball shapes. Be sure to check it out. Who knows, maybe you'll create your own bentos sooner than you think!
