My First Bento Lunches!  
Made my first bento lunches, for Gerald and Graham! Also, photos of the onigiri that Graham and I made together! :D

My first bento, made for Gerald! There's a bottom layer (separated by parchment paper since I don't actually have a bento box) with tofu fried in sesame oil. Top layer are onigiri filled with soy sauce and katsuobushi flakes, tamago, hot dog octopi, and vegetable sushi!

The little container is filled with soy sauce (which I discovered goes well on everything, even the little hot dog octopuses!)

Bento I made for Graham for his first day of work! Not sure if he has access to a fridge there so I made it with all things that won't need to be cold. Bottom layer is chopped celery, carrots, and daikon radish. Next layer is apple slices, with lemon juice to keep them from browning, and the top layer is a PB&J (cut into a heart) with a lychee mochi.

My first onigiri, made with Graham! They are filled with soy sauce and katsuobushi flakes, and pickled plums.

That sounds awesome, we could make a ton of rice and have lots of different fillings, and then maybe have some plum wine to go with our onigiri! :3 Thsi might be easiest to do over at my place/Miko's, once me and Graham are settled into the apartment next door.

BTW, your icons are all pretty amazing!

FFFF. Thank you. And yes! We have plum wine here, so we'll bring it over. How is the move going?

And awww. Thank you~<3

Move is pretty slow going right now, just getting our electricity on today (they were closed for Good Friday wtf), so we'll be able to finally vacuum the place. I'm not planning on moving in until May 1st, since I have to finish this crazy semester this month and have my portfolio review, but I'm moving my stuff over a bit at a time so hopefully it won't be too bad at the end of the month.

Also, talking on Twitter to Miko and our friend Alina and they are down with sushi making night, so I think we can combine the two to make a totally awesome weeaboo evening! X3

Hell yes! I'm totally down with that. Just let me know when. We'll be traveling for the next two weekends, but if you need any extra hands for moving, let us know. We would be happy to help.

Aww, thanks! :D I'll probably make a facebook page to organize sushi/onigiri night because it seems to be easiest to organize events on there. Just found you and sent you a friend request~
