The last two quail eggs in the batch have become TinySprite's winter school term's last snowman bento! Yep, I did make an inordinate number of snowmen bento this season. MisterMan doesn't get a bento because his class is having a Christmas luncheon. I made inarizushi for his class, and I'm hoping the kids like them. As for my girl, she also gets chicken, one of the inarizushi, Okinawan sweet potatoes, crabapple, carrots, oranges and blackberries along with her happy snowman. The Christmas themed bento have been a lot of fun to make this year. Hope you had a chance to make something fun and festive in your lunchboxes too. ^_^


  1. Aww the snowman with his little hat is so very cute!!

  2. love the face expression of your snowman...hehehe...

  3. I love it when you carve those tiny corn cob pipes!! so wonderful! Sheri, a question about the okinawan sweet potato... Are they cooked?, or if cooked how do you keep the fabulous purple color?

  4. Thanks berrygirl!
    Yes, the Okinawan sweet potato is steamed, then slice and cut into shapes. Not only does the color stay strong after cooking, it actually gets darker overnight in the fridge. A super great bento food item :)

  5. This is the cutest meal I've ever seen.
