Presentation and instructions for a complete bento
Fun with sweet dessert bentos
This is a guest post by Smalerie, who blogs about bento making and her other hobbies in her blog Boston Bento. Here she shows us how to make fun sweet dessert bentos to share with friends...or, well, I guess you could reserve one for yourself for a super-indulgent occasion too ^_^; -(maki)

Not everyone eats breakfast as well as lunch at the office, but for those of us who begin work at 9am after a whirlwhind of exercise, showering and primping, it's convenient to be able to pack a bento-style breakfast the night before in order to cut down on the morning rush time. We all want to preserve those precious minutes of sleep before the alarm goes off!
One of my favorite homemade to-go breakfasts is an omelette sandwich and fruit. This can be done with a myriad of mix-ins and spreads, but for the purposes of this post, I've gone with a Mexican theme, just to step out of the bento box a bit.
This is presented as an idea for a bento that doesn't look like a bento, for people with hearty appetites who can't get their heads around the smallness of a bento box and how it could possibly 'be enough'. It's supposed to ressemble a buffalo chicken wing meal, but has cut down on the fat and calories of a real buffalo chicken spread considerably.
