New Bento Toys Make Me HAPPY!

I got the new bento toy I ordered from jbox.com, so we had to try it out!

I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this new bento tool :) It was like Christmas when it arrived, along with new Hello Kitty Mayo cups for Kat and a set of cute small silicone food cups.

Next time we'll know we need to spray the reservoirs w/ cooking spray because they stuck a bit when we tried to get them out. I love new toys!

Planning still continues for next week's Bento workshop at AnimeNext. I realized 2 nights ago that I forgot I had ordered silicone cupcake cups for the bento sets too, so I ordered some heart shaped ones and hope and pray they arrive in time - but I am not holding my breath. I have yet to receive a shipment notice and have found this company to sometimes be a bit slow in getting things shipped, so if it hasn't shipped by Monday, I may have to cancel the order and either leave them out or pay more for them somewhere else... :(

My neighbor knocked on the door earlier than expected last night for our walk, so I just stuck the bento in the fridge until I got back and then just threw in the last bits, so it isn't the prettiest bento I've ever done...

I am still thinking about getting that item -- I LOVE the gadgets as well.

I may not be too far from you -- I am in Lower Westchester Co. NY - wish I was more up for things likes cons/conventions -but with Multiple Sclerosis I have to pick and choose activities - and mostly I have been picking the Boy Scout things with my son (I am rambling - we are back from a weekend camping/my serving as campmaster)

DEFINITELY keep us up on your building of mastery re that cooker!
