bento 1: goldfish garden!

hi my name's katie and this is my blog. i like bento boxes and i like my boyfriend. most of the time. so here you will see me making lunch for my boyfriend, or rather the lunches i make for him, and right now its about BENTOS! because they are awesome. sometimes i might show my own lunch. but i don't have to pack a lunch currently. but that doesn't mean it's not fabu.

i go to school at colby college (bleh) but right now i'm home for summer and----that means lots of time to pack brett's lunches!

this is what i made today! not the best pictures ever for some reason. i don't have a good bento box for brett yet so this is two regular old plastic containers. (tuppaware? is that how you spell it?)

i am a vegan but for those of you who know brett and me he is obviously not. so here you have a hot dog at the bottom and then across the top left to right there's some noodle/cabbage salad with a ginger dressing, ketchup in the middle, and on the right is some asparagus. (spargel, for those who know me, das wichtigest gemuese der welt (oder etwas)). any way!

this is a salad with spinach and spring greens, some carrot goldfish (i have a special little cutter), cukes, onions, and tomatoes. there are also some little plastic fishies filled with dressing. they are supposed to be for soy sauce and they don't work fabulously for dressing but hey its day 1 we're only going up from here. the yellow thingers are chopped up mango. WHICH IS AMAZING.

i also gave him two little mochi, one green tea and one sesame. they're not in the picture though. there's also a tiny jelly i just remembered in between the ketchup and the hot dog i think its in the close up. ideally i want to get some big springy lettuce leaves to stuff in between the edges of his hot dog and stuff but i think it came out pretty well for my first one. there you have it!
