The weather this year was unusually cold, but seeing the animals and packing bright eggs and Bento snack boxes made it special.
We even learned that they've added TEA to their cafe menu! Here's a sampling:
At the Zoo - triangle Bento purchased from Lunch-a-Porter
Norio Tamago keeper purchased from BentoandCo
And hot tea for a cold, unseasonable afternoon - Numi Moroccan Mint from the zoo's food vendor. Not my favorite tea brand, but it was a welcome sight after walking the trails in the chilly wind!

My poodle bento: grilled ginger sesame tofu and crab bites, mixed vegetables, cherry tomatoes, Laughing Cow wedge, and 2 molded boiled eggs (bunny and bear). Very protein-forward.
This is a bento made in my recent Hello Kitty onigiri-style box. It's so tiny, you'd hardly imagine it could fit a meal. In truth, for most people, it's probably best called a snack-box, but my meal requirements are a little different from the norm, and it's the perfect size. It fits easily in a purse or bag - the only thing lacking yet on the day I first used it was a carrying bag or furoshiki.
Ingredients: sweet potato, laughing cow wedge, onion onigiri, asparagus, baby carrots, and 2 vienna sausages.
More updates to come as I sort through my pics!
