Paige's little snacky lunch for today.
She has a mishmash of holiday fun foods:
- Goldfish crackers, holiday edition
- marshmallow snowmen (and snowgirl)
- deli rolls (turkey bologna and provolone)
- cucumber slices
- hard boiled egg
The marshmallows are lined up on cute bento picks to look like snowmen. :) I used my food safe markers to dot on some faces and buttons. My red marker has seen better days and their mouths look wonky as a result!
The hard boiled egg is molded in a bear shape. But I didn't use the usual bear-shaped egg mold, I used an onigiri (shaped rice) mold. It is part of a 3-piece set set a sweet friend surprised me with a while back. :) I actually can't hardly cook rice to save my life (I'm a disgrace to real bento makers worldwide!), so I repurposed it to shape eggs. :) The bear has a little holly decoration on one ear nub, I drew on using my favorite food safe markers.
The process was the same as using a regular egg mold (see tutorial on how to make shaped eggs here), but I had to use a smaller egg and hold the pieces of the rice mold closed with rubber bands since rice molds don't clip closed.
Paige's little Beary Christmas holiday bento is packed in our leaflet tight bento box. . :)
