Bento Box Lunches

Most days I am able to work from home. I especially love the days I am able to fill my bento box with some snacks and/or lunch and move my "office" to the patio. Thankfully I can do most anything from there unless it's raining (computers and water do not mix) or my neighbor's who have a workshop in their garage go on a band-saw kick (always during a conference call.) There are some occupational hazards to working from your patio though. Yesterday a huge piece of fried chicken dropped from the sky a few feet away. Seriously... a KFC looking breast portion.... scared the beejeebees out of me... too heavy for some bird flying overhead to carry I guess. Now I've heard of swinging chickens but I don't think they meant batter dipped with 11 secret herbs and spices.

These are a few of my most recent bento box lunches. Click on the highlighted links for recipes and resources...
