Bento Lunch: Fall Bento with Couscous and Shu Mai

It just doesn't feel like fall here in FL but it has been a little bit cooler today and this is my first fall bento. The chicken shu mai is from Trader Joe's and they just required heating, I usually steam them in my mini microwave steamer but you can also heat them in a microwave safe dish, super easy. It took me 7 minutes to cook the couscous on the stove and N loves couscous a lot lately.

In this bento:
  • Top tier contains seedless black grapes, chicken shu mai and leaf shaped cucumber slices.
  • Bottom tier contains couscous with carrot lettering and leaf shaped colby jack cheese.
Packed in a double tier lunch box that I purchased from Crocs shoe store couple of years ago.

Here are the supplies or similar that I used to make this lunch.
