A day late, but here is this week’s Great Bento Idea! It comes from Cathryn3, and contains a selection of really tasty looking fall comfort foods - chicken tenders, glazed baby carrots, brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes and Vidalia (sweet) onions. I bet this is a bento that tastes great heated up, though it should be tasty at room temperature too.
I chose this because it looks like something you could do with the inevitable leftovers from that Great Big American Feast coming up in just a few days. Cut up leftover roast turkey instead of the chicken tenders, and there you are! I’m looking forward to seeing what other people do with their Thanksgiving leftovers bento-wise after the fact too.

(If you want your idea to catch my eye by the way, the best way is to join the Just Bento or Just Bento Bento Gear groups on Flickr and post them there. Don’t forget to post a link to your blog in the description if you have one.)
