Packing Homemade Sushi Bento Box for Lunch

I've been trying to cook more interesting things and pack lunch for work.  There are plenty of Japanese stores in New York City; so I decided to try making homemade sushi rolls.  I'm mildly obsessed with bento boxes; so I decided to pack a bento box of sushi for my work lunch.  Yesterday, I went to Dainobu on 56th and picked up a sushi mat for rolling, some seaweed, and a cute bento box.  I almost bought a Hello Kitty bento, but then realized that I'm 28 and getting too old for that shit.  I also went to Katagiri, which I've already mentioned in a previous post, and picked up sashimi salmon, short grain rice, Japanese cucumber, and sesame seeds.  The other ingredients - including rice vinegar - were already in the apartment, because we're hip and cool.  If you want a taste of Japanese culture and to learn some cool recipes, you should check out this youtube channel (I kind of love it):

Not pretty enough to pack, but was delicious anyway.  My husband ate the really unglamorous rolls.
