Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree Bento

Yeah, okay, maybe it's just a broccoli tree like all the other broccoli trees. But this one has a star on top! And star ornaments on the branches! Can we just call it a Christmas tree bento? I hope she'll go for it! Besides the festive "Christmas tree" there is my ever-present, favorite satsuma mandarin, a few blackberries, a lone grape tomato, and the dwindling cup of home-pickled cucumbers. I have another six pickles to go, so this exact same cup will be present in several more upcoming bento boxes. Just to warn you. There isn't anything in the thermal food jar yet, which is why I'm not showing you the interior, but I am planning to pack the kale-white bean-chicken sausage-vegetable soup that we had for dinner. It's a typical winter warming bento, which is so nice when the weather is cold, isn't it?


  1. Eek! What a cute little Christmas Tree!! Love it!

  2. Broccoli Christmas trees are the best. That´s it, a trend!
    That soup looks quite portuguese! ehehehe. kale and beans... yum yum!

    1. Yes, I do think it is probably portuguese!! I love portuguese bean soup.. but for this one I didn't have the proper sausage or the ham hock... but still tasty and warm!
      Thank you karaimame!
