Snowman Quail Egg Christmas Bento

One week until Christmas! Here is my last Christmas themed bento for the year. It's another snowman, this time made with a nori- and carrot-decorated quail egg. A little blue hat, and there's a happy friend waiting to enjoy lunchtime with TinySprite! I used my EcoLunchbox Solo Cube with 4 silicone cups containing sliced bratwurst sausages, sauteed shredded brussels sprouts topped with parmesan and garlic powder, Greek yogurt with homemade granola and a perfectly sized satsuma mandarin. I don't normally pack yogurt without a lid, but the layer of granola (Alton Brown's recipe) helps keep it in place. I like how everything fits in here snugly, and makes a colorful, festive holiday bento. Merry Christmas, friends!

  9. I hope you had a nice Christmas with your family. I just went through your Christmas theme bento and I'm really impressed with your creativity, Sheri!! My bento is so ordinary and nothing so exciting and fun about. I need to work on that! Hope you have a nice winter break and Happy New Year!
