Anpanman Egg Salad Sandwich Bento

We're baaaa-aaack! Did you notice a dearth of bento over here on this little page of the internets? We were on Spring Break last week. Anyone else? Yeah, it seemed a bit early to us too. But we did enjoy some time off to play and have some fun in the sun. We went to the beach, scarfed down the requisite shave ice and malasadas, and generally warmed up our winterized (well, California winterized) bodies. After a nice relaxing week, we're ready to get back into the bento habit! Actually, this one was from before the break: an egg salad on whole wheat sandwich thin with baby spinach. Couple of carrots, the usual pickled condiments, and a few berries make up the rest of the lunch. Happy Meal!
Okay, this photo was not taken by me (thanks and photo credit to Steve Anderson), but we saw some humpbacks breaching just like this, from shore. It was spectacular! And very "Life of Pi"-like: we also saw fish leaping over the waves and slow-floating turtles poking their heads up for a look around while they fed on coral reefs. There was even a report of a first ever shark sighting in the Ko'Olina swimming lagoons, but luckily we missed that.


  1. Ahhh so cute! You are so good at decorating (but very easy for anyone can do it). My kids used to enjoy watching anpanman (I made them watch in Japanese too. Hehee). Sounds like you had a nice relaxing week. My son's Easter break is starting this Friday. I can't wait to go warmer place...(SD/LA). :)

    1. I love Anpanman and all his foodie friends! I hope you have a wonderful break next week Nami!
