This will likely be added to in the future -- I actually have a huge list of 40(!) bento meal ideas (some of which are to be made specially, but most can be leftovers). I'll be posting those out in the near future once I've got a better idea of what can actually go with them.
Currently, these are the foods that are available on a regular basis in our household -- when I get more space I'll be looking to make some of my various bento meals.
