How to Make an Ewok Bento Box


Ahh, the humble bento box, savior of lunches both take out and home made, and yet, still so novel in the US. I admit I don’t make any funny shapes in mine, just cram it full of apple, baby carrot, sandwich, and rice krispy treat, and even then I get amused exclamations at my compartmentalized lunch. Anybody else out there bentoing it up?

    They’re not quite Bentos, but a while ago I was inspired by Starbucks “bistro boxes” to start packing lunches for my boyfriend and I. I found a bunch of divided ziploc containers at Target (http://www.drugstore.com/ziploc-divided-container-rectangle/qxp220989) and spend maybe 20 minutes on Sunday afternoon putting together lunches for the week. It’s almost like I’m an adult person!

    All of My Freshman year at high school (I’m a Junior now) I packed a bento for lunch. They weren’t really all that note worthy. Just me getting a ziploc container and filling it with different foods everyday. After a while though it became a big deal that my friends had to know what I packed for lunch this time. It’s like Hmmm…Let’s see what we can fit in a six by six by three inch box every day. They would’ve really gone wild if I made mine with those cute shapes. At that point I wouldn’t even be allowed to eat it. Especially this Ewok one. My best friend would’ve looked at me as if I was killing her puppy.
