mini-key sandwiches

17 04 2011

tomorrow at sundown marks the start of the jewish holiday passover.  for the eight days during which the holiday is observed, one refrains from eating leavened bread, as well as a variety of other foods that are seen as “rising” like leavened bread (depending on the regional tradition, this group of forbidden foods may include rice, beans, and other ingredients which expand when cooked).

although i won’t be strictly observing the restrictions this year, i will be saying goodbye to bread for the next week or so, which alas, includes sandwich bentos.  so as a fond (and temporary!) farewell, i made two egg salad sammies for tomorrow’s lunch.  super simple, with the cute addition of a cut-outs in the shape of keys.  the two breads i used, rye and pumpernickel, were nicely contrasting, and so i switched the keys (then both loaves went in the freezer to wait for the end of the holiday!).

this isn’t quite a bento, but i hope you don’t mind me posting.

speaking of “not quite a bento,” have you checked out the amazing wool/viscose play bento set that was recently posted as a bento4japan auction?  although you can’t eat this one, it would be the perfect gift for a cute child in your life… or for your own enjoyment.  bidding will definitely get heated on this one, so don’t miss it!
