These were from Thursday and Friday.

Top tier contains jicama, snow peas, carrots, strawberries, almonds, gjetost, miniature gummi bears. Bottom: Rice with black sesame seed & shiso furikake decorations, broccoli, leftover steak pieces.

And then Friday's bento holds:
In the top tier, roasted yam bits, snow peas, jicama, strawberries, & blackberries. Bottom tier holds onigiri with nori decorations, oven-roasted broccoli, and chicken with Thai chili sauce.

Yam oven-fries are my new favorite thing, food-wise. These took about 20 minutes in my toaster oven (just a couple of French-fry-sized pieces of yam cut into 3/4 inch chunks, tossed in olive oil, and roasted at 425 degrees).

Two bentos!

Two bentos from last week. First one is just a bit of a snack bento: strawberries, blackberries, almond pieces, and honey-wheat bread with honey butter in the container.
And then a full lunch featuring more of the same: berries, carrots, bread, homemade gyoza rolls (I'm not sure what to call them, but they're just chicken gyoza in larger egg roll wrappers).

Nothing terribly exciting, but it's hard to be terribly exciting early in the week. I'll have more interesting lunches when I post up the end of the week.
