Rediscovering bento

I first discovered bento lunches through Biggie's LunchinaBox.net.  While I love bento lunches, I don't have a lot of ideas on what to do with them. (Even though I bought the Vegan Lunchbox Cookbook which had fantastic ideas, the ideas never made the leap from book to box with me.)

So, I went searching in Biggie's blog for someone in Dallas and found Shannon's bentolunch.blogspot.com.

Reinspired I packed vegetarian fried rice, a salad, edamame, grapes and two baby carrot sticks.  >

Now, if I can just convince Shannon--possibly by blogging about her...I'm not above that--into teaching a class on "grown up" bento lunches.  I'll be set.
