First Bento of 2008

I couldn't wait any longer to use my new bento box that I had gotten for Christmas (thanks, Mom and Dad!) so tonight instead of putting my dinner on a plate, I arranged it in the little bento bean (isn't he cute?!) and ate it out of there.

The meal was simple: grilled chicken and grape tomatoes on a bed of steamed brown rice.

For those who are keeping track at home, this is my 51st bento.

Awesome new bento. Congrats on having your first one! Fun aren't they. I have a Nikyora (sp?) bento too. But mine is long, skinny, and blue. Enjoy your new bento box and happy new year!

Thanks for the welcome to Daring Bakers, Lewis. I am looking forward to my first challenge. :0)

Happy Homebaker: Yeah, my parents ordered if from J List and had it shipped over from Japan. :0)

Ooooh, I saw that one on j-list. I'm pretty freakin' jealous now!
