    Good Morning,

    I need some inspiration... icon_wink.gif

    Recently I fell in love with those japanese bento-boxes for lunch! Wonderful little things to take to work, like vegetables, rice... whatever.
    There are three of us at home, everyone takes his own lunchbox to work/school. DH takes sandwiches and/or salad, son takes sandwiches and I take whatever's left.

    Any ideas for middle-eastern inspired lunchbox ideas?? Should be easy to pack, no need to heat up or kept cool, no mess to eat... (and easy to prepare icon_smile.gif )

    Thanks for your help! icon_smile.gif
