Bento my roommate made for me a few months ago.
onigiri (rice balls) covered in shiso (dried leaf seasoning, also called beefsteak plant- turns stuff purple!)
mexican wedding cakes/russian teacakes (cookies made from butter, powdered sugar, ground pecans)
from Betty Crocker's cookbook:
RUSSIAN TEACAKES (or Mexican wedding cakes)
makes about 4 dozen cookies
1 cup butter, softened
0.5 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2.25 cups all-purpose flour
0.25 teaspoons salt
0.25 cups finely chopped nuts (I use pecans)
Heat oven to 400˚F. Mix thoroughly butter, sugar, and vanilla. Work in flour, salt, and nuts until dough holds together. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set but not brown. While warm, roll in confectioners' sugar. Cool. Roll in sugar again.
