Tasty Thursday: Daily Blog Review

I happened upon a handful of food blogs this week, quite by accident. All of them are beautiful and worthy of review. And since I plan to do this for a year, they will certainly make the list at some point. However, today's blog really grabbed my attention.

First question? What the heck is a bento? Call me kooky, but I have never, ever heard of a bento. So, I went straight to my trusty web browser and Googled it.

Wikipedia had this to say:

Bento is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables as a side dish. Containers range from disposable mass-produced to hand-crafted lacquer ware. While bento are readily available at convenience stores and throughout Japan, it is still considered an essential skill of a Japanese housewife to be able to prepare an appealing boxed lunch.

Hmhph. You just never know what you might learn in a day of blogging. Seriously.

Today’s blog is totally committed to bento lunches. What’s For Lunch At Our House takes you on a journey through days and days of lunches, bento style. Created by Shannon, this blog is a place she uses to display her often-adventurous lunches for her family, mainly her kindergartener. Just take a look at this example here. And here. Shannon’s husband even gets a bento! (Lucky dawg! Wish someone would make me a bento….)

If you’re looking for new ideas for lunch at home and on the go, check out Shannon’s bento lunches for some inspiration. If Shannon ever finds herself living as a housewife in Japan, she's all set. Girl's got skills!
