This bento consists of:

  • Snow peas

Packed in a Hakoya Rectangle Lady’s Bento Dark Brown which I’m sure you can still find at Ichiban Kan, but I can’t link it because they stopped selling online long ago (NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!). 🙁

A breakfast bento!

–Cheese grits shaped with onigiri shapers
–Hardboiled egg shaped like a fish

I have also begun wrapping my lunches (when I don’t use my lunchbox) in a bandanna. All I had at this point was a pink one. I fucking hate pink. Why do I own it? Well, why do I own a Pimp Cup? Part of a Halloween costume. I have acquired more fabric to make my own wrappings. Because pink sucks.
