I love bentos and taking bento to office for either my breakfast or lunch sound good :) This is not much of a bento banter though . It is not those creative ones but just the same it is colorful and looks appetizing . I have just harvested a load of kimchi ...so you can guess that I made some kimchi onigiri , pan fried fish and a simple tomato salad and for starter... a kiwi fruit ....this is super delicious....all my favorite in a box! Ever since I joined Bento Banter , I realized that I really take the trouble to make my bento looks attractive and colorful...thus making my lunch from home more appetizing .
Making onigiri is simplier than making sushi :p Kimchi onigiri ....just the thought of kimchi , I will salivate away ...and when I know what is inside the box...I will be wishing for my lunch break to be brought forward earlier...lol! yea I am a greedy pig when it comes to food. And not to overwork my salivary glands, I attacked the kiwi fruit first ...after which I go for the salad, then the onigiri and last the pan fried fish. A satisfying box meal no doubt. One thing I love about bento is I can control my food intake....limited space in the box means smaller amount of food taken in :p
this is one way to use my homemade kimchi
and my Jo is in awe of this kimchi onigiri :)

a simple salad with homemade thousand island sauce

and guess what ? it was better than store bought ones :)
