Bento Masculine or Feminine?
On another bento board I was reading a post by a young woman who is starting to make bento for her male room-mate; she wanted ideas for 'masculine' foods. Are there such things? I think I know what she meant, and that one post was the reason I added skillet chili fries to Jan's bento this morning.
He has: MachoMan quiche, sugar snap peas, cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, and a super masculine pumped up daikon chickie on top; chili fries with jalapenos (UNGH!!), orange sections with little heart-shaped grapes on top just like ripped biceps; Pocky (hey I've seen boys eat it!) in the lid.
I have much the same except in my case it is: lovely lite quiche, veggies and olives with a kyoot widdle daikon chickie on top, oranges, grapes, and a bright red marshmallow Peep.
So I think we are OK with the gender boundaries. Phew, that was close.
