(# 258) Rice snow flake bento

Tomorrow's bento featuring rice snow flake ... it's not snowing here yet this winter, but I am sure hoping to get some soon. The boys too can't wait to play snow balls outside, making snow man and having cup of hot chocolate afterwards, no school days .. and just snuggle watching movies with brothers while mommy baking some goodies ... ah the joy of winter.

I used snow flake cookie cutter to shape the rice, then I arranged some scramble egg around it, but I am a bit disappointing with the egg colors, they are somewhat a bit pale so the snow flake isn't too clear.
I used store bought eggs while my chicken are slowing down laying eggs.

Anyway, next to it are some stir fry tofu with sweet peppers, purple and regular carrot and grape tomato. Fruit and snack are packed separately.

Oh by the way, I was wrong when I said tomorrow would be my kids last day of school before winter holiday, turned out they still having school until next Wednesday the 19th, but they'll have ski lessons on Monday so I'll only have 2 more days to pack my boys bento this year.

(# 257) Rice noodle daisy bento

I prepared two identical bento for tomorrow's, so I only made 1 picture tonight.

I love love love this bento boxes and I think I use it quite often, just the right size for my boys.

Anyway, inside the box are stir fry rice noodle with chicken meatballs and carrots, topped with some sliced mini sweet peppers, I tried to arrange it to look like a flower. I topped it again with daisy provolone cheese and carrot.

Next tier contains fresh kiwi and satsuma orange.

This week would be my kids last week of the year before winter holiday. The school is resuming January 2nd next year. I hope I can still make one last bento of the year tomorrow, will see ^__^

(# 254) Chicken pot pie Elephant and Bunny bento

I made chicken pot pie for dinner the other night and I have little leftovers of the fillings and the crust, so I made single serve chicken pot pie in disposable tin cups. I topped the pie with elephant and bunny, I hope you can see its shape.

Next to the pie are some fresh pineapple, kiwi, satsuma and mini grape tomatoes.
I also packed some garden salads in a separated box, it contains baby spinach, bell peppers, and extra thin sliced yellow and regular carrots. Raspberry and walnut dressing is packed in a little bottle.

Here's a close up picture, I put carrot pick in the tomato for the bunny .. my kids say they are cute!
