Hubby and I took a much needed long weekend vacation to Seattle. We had a great time, and the weather was perfect! We did a lot of walking, saw many sights, and did a little shopping. I did some research before we went down and found a store in the Westlake mall in downtown Seattle and was said to have bento stuffs. Oh my. It was a Japanese dollar store - everything was $1.50! Coming from Alaska, $1.50 for stuff is so reasonable I may have gotten a little carried away, but I hardly have any bento gear so far, so I needed to build the stash, and at $1.50 each I couldn't resist. It was a lot of fun. I have to get the stuff unpacked and get a picture of it all, and then let the bentos begin!
I love food. I love sampling food, cooking food, reading about food, drooling over pictures of food.
I'm amazed by bento bloggers and that's how this all started. I don't make bentos very often and they're not as beautiful as some but they are fun.
More about me - I live in Alaska, married with 2 dogs & a cat, work from home for our marketing/advertising company, and have many things I'm interested in. Did I mention...I love cooking, reading cooking & bento blogs, watching cooking shows, baking, I like photography, quilting and sewing.
