Today I made a bento with all Asian Salad Tribute (based on bento no. 28 from Just Bento). It is a cold bento, and needs to be refrigerated since it does have eggs and mayo in it.
Let's start with the bottom of the bento.
I put the little wrapped bread package on top, and closed the lid.
It is about here that I would like to state my policy on posting any recipes. Whenever possible I will give you the link to the original recipe. I plan to start posting how I altered the recipes to make them my own on the weekends when I may not be making a daily bento. Comparing mine to the original is highly recommended. I really want to give credit where credit is due, so my policy on recipes is to always site the original for use (you really should read them anyway for little tips and tricks learned by making the original) and not to repost their hard work here, confusing it as something I created. If I can not post a link, I will try my hardest to find the original or site the book and/or person I learned it from.
I find that I agree with the ethics of Makiko Itoh of Just Hungry and Just Bento.
"I didn’t copy down the original recipe there, since it’s my policy never to do that with someone else’s recipe that’s online (or indeed offline)."
With that said, PLEASE, take the time to look at Just Bento and Just Hungry. They are both AMAZING sites packed with all kinds of info and tips! I have learned TONS from them.
So bento #2 is done! And it looks like Lara is just as excited about her lunch as I was to make it!
