Wondering what to do with all that bounty? Here’s some interesting and fun suggestions to help you make the most of all your Thanksgiving leftovers.

Thanksgiving BentoAs the folks at the Bentoism food blog can attest, modern bento boxes are becoming a  popular and fun way for people to add healthy variety to their humdrum brown bag work food as well as save money on lunch during challenging economic times.

You can start putting together your own modern bento boxes using any any segmented Tupperware type storage containers you may already own (just make sure they are leak-proof before using). Or if you prefer, you can purchase specially designed bento boxes and food bins from your local Asian market or online.

Here’s what one person did when making a Thanksgiving bento that featured leftover turkey and all the trimmings.
