Oops! Santa Bento

Today I packed cheesy enchilada casserole topped with cheesy snowflakes. I don't have a mini snowflake cutter; can you believe it? But since no two snowflakes are alike, I took some liberties and just created some using the flower and star cutters I already had. Looks like Santa is heading into the snow-covered chimney! I saw this idea as a cupcake somewhere, and decided to make a bento version. The snow is cottage cheese, Santa's pants are apples, and his boots are grapes. I held them together with dried spaghetti, which will soften by lunchtime. In order to close this Lunchbot box, I moved the silicone cup to the center between the orange slices. Ho ho ho! I hope he makes it okay! ^_^


  1. You never fail to make my days with all your fun bentos! Keep it up, Sheri! ;)
    Oh, btw, CG of Cooking Gallery has a bento contest now till mid Dec (I forgotten the date but I'll send you the link later when I get back home or when I check after this). It's open for everyone. Come and join in the fun with us! ;)
    I haven't send in mine yet tho.. I'm trying to find a chance to make bentos now that it's the sch vacation here in SG.
    Have a great day!

  2. What fun!! My children love the song 'When Santa got stuck up the chimney'.
