Egg Salad Bento



Hello everyone! Yay! Another school year!! I hope you all had a terrific summer!
I have been taking a bit of a break over the summer from making daily bento lunches, and I didn't photograph very many at all : ( But now that school is back in session, I will really, really try to be more dilligent at posting on here!
This bento is egg salad sandwich on crustless wheat bread- which can be be purchased with the crusts already cut off, how great is that? That way I don't feel wasteful when I don't use the crusts : ) Plus, it's a great time-saver, bonus for me..
Also included is an ice-cream cone shaped egg which I dyed with food coloring, mini grapes, potato salad and blueberry wafers. Oh, and orange natchan of course ~_^ It's the cutest little can of sugar water ever!
I didn't have room in the carry bag for the can, so I rolled it in the placemat and tied a handle for the daughter to carry, and hopefully try to keep it cold.

I love obento! I just started, and I am so excited. Please share your tips with us.. Great photos! The ice cream egg mold is hard to find. I have other molds, but can't find ice cream egg mold, I bet my daughter would love it!

Hi future ms._______!! I love that egg mold too, it's the first time trying it, it turned out pretty well I think. You're not kidding about it being expensive, I bought that set along with the quail egg molds and it was $20 after shipping!(and I live in Japan!!) (@_@)

I dont really get this.. Is the egg an egg, or is it chocolate? Sorry, but it looks kinda wierd to me. But Im not used to that kind of food.. We usually have sandwish (whole-grain bread) and maby some milk.
The other stuff looks like its good!
