Bento #1

I present my first official Akai Bento!
This Bento took me about 15 minutes to put together this morning since everything had already been made ahead of time.
In this Bento we have: Frozen mango, cherries, grapes and a strawberry, a hard boiled egg, potato salad, a container filled with soy sauce. We also have piggy rice, chicken stirfry with a medley of vegetables. grape tomatoes, beneath the tomatoes are some orange peppers that were cooked with maple syrup and chili powder (recipe from, next to the peppers we have some store bought Kimchi and lastly we have some Carrot Kinpira (recipe also from on top of spinach.

JustBento is an amazing website dedicated to Bento and the creator Maki has a lot of great recipes on there and also on her other website She has been one of my greatest inspirations for Bento making.
