So big score on the bento box front yesterday! Miss H. and I hit the road in the morning for a jaunt over the hill to Cupertino and big Korean grocery store shopping. Along with the requisite kimchee, banchan and random crunch snack purchases, we found a vast array of Lock & Lock storage containers and the ever elusive bento lunch set.
I bought four 350 containers -- two plastic and two glass -- which are great for general storage as well as providing additional lunch packing options.
The bento lunch set has two 350ml leakproof containers -- one divided into thirds -- a 300ml drink bottle, and a zippered carrying case with handles.
I used the Lock & Lock for the first time today -- we went across town to check out the Capitola Art and Wine Festival and I took some plums and edamame along for Miss H. -- and now I totally understand why these babies are so coveted!! They're perfectly sized and extremely well made. When you pop the lids on and off, you can feel the quality. I bought a couple of extra sets and haven't yet decided whether to keep them or throw them up on eBay. I heart them!
