May Vegetarian Bento Contest Voting: Round One, Group B

As I explained yesterday, I have divided the entries for the Vegetarian Bento Contest into slightly more manageable groups. Here are the voting rules again: continue reading...

  • Take a look at the bentos or bento recipes in each group. The entry number is a link to the page for each entry.

Frugal Bento Month: How much have you saved?
