Christmas Tree Bento

I'll take one Christmas Tree... to go please ;)

Eliana and I have been waiting to break out the Christmas gear! I strictly do not do anything Christmas until Thanksgiving is over. I sometimes feel like Thanksgiving gets jipped! After Halloween the stores start to put up Christmas decorations and it can be easy to pass over Thanksgiving. So after our Thanksgiving we helped 'Buelo and 'Buela put up their Christmas Tree so while we made this lunch we were thinking of their tree :) Together we made this simple Christmas Tree bento in our EasyLunchboxes.

In the main compartment she had a Christmas tree sandwich, all pieces cut with a Christmas tree cookie cutter. She chose a ham and cheese sandwich on wheat bread and on top I put a spinach tortilla for the tree.  The Christmas "lights" are red bell pepper, carrots and yellow bell pepper.  The star is cheddar cheese. You can easily "glue" the pieces down with a touch of honey :)

In the upper left compartment Eliana had some vanilla yogurt in a mini-dipper with Christmas Tree sprinkles. The mini dipper is sitting in a silicone cup.

In the bottom left compartment are some cucumber Christmas Trees cut with a mini cutter, sitting on top of cucumber scraps.

Eliana was so happy to help and she loved this lunch! She actually asked for more yogurt so next time I need to double the serving :)


Our bento was inspired by our Christmas Tree Lunch from last year:
