I learned something new a few days ago….I love, loVE, LOVE learning NEW things! Although sometimes I wonder if I’m the last person on the planet to ‘learn’ certain things. For example, I don’t believe I’ve heard the term ‘bento’ before. I didn’t know there was actually a word to describe those cute kiddie (or otherwise) little meals! Have I been living under a rock? How did I suddenly learn this term? Well, Kathy from Eclecticlamb ‘liked’ one of my posts…so I visited her site, and Wha-La! I learned something NEW! Thanks Kathy!
ben-to [ben-toh; Japanese ben-taw] a meal, usually served in a lacquered or elaborately decorated box that is divided into sections for holding individual portions of food.
Pinterest has lots of ideas to start with:
I used to have some divided plastic containers….hmmm, where are they? If I find them, I think I’ll try to create a bento of my own! Learn or DO something NEW today!
