I'd just like suggestions.

I was thinking about making Noriben, simple and good, and maybe some stir-fry.

But I'm not sure.

What did you make for your first bento?

I played with some very simple basic, almost snack kinds of things because I was volunteering at a program for free kayaking in our city.

I think the best thing to do is to start with simple recipes you know and add new things when you feel more comfortable :)
You can try some pasta salad or some rice, some veggies and a meat... Like... rice/broccoli/carrots/hamburguers? I think that's the easiest bento you can make :)
good luck! post pics! :)

I just made my first "official" bento today. I did spiced chickpeas, mashed potatoes, and a wonderful cauliflower salad. The chickpeas and the cauliflower salad were both recipes submitted by people on this site, thought not Maki. Check them out in the custom search!
Tell us what you ended up making!

Here is a picture of the first bento I ever made! The onigiri has mayo-tuna filling :)
The little brown guys with the koalas are carob-coated almonds - they are better than chocolate!
