I have a confession. I am not a fan of the American version of a lunch box. In case anybody here hasn't seen one before, here are examples of the kind of bento box lunches I pack for myself when I travel.
Mine aren't as pretty as those, but I like to have a really good meal in the case of either an airline meal I cannot eat or the worst case of no meal TO eat. The best instance was on a flight across country when a child (about 4) next to me looked at my bento, looked at his mom and announced politely - "Can I please have what she's having?" We split my dinner.
