Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Here are a few school lunches that never got blogged last week. 

Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer Bagel:

Rudolph was a cheese sandwich mini bagel with broken pretzel antlers, a grape tomato nose, & cheese eyes stuck in with bento picks. I realized after lunch was long gone that I never gave him a mouth! Poor Rudolph, no mouth & no mention in The Night Before Christmas poem...

Playful pandas frolic in this festive red & green EasyLunchbox:

Lunch was cucumber & tomato "holly & berries", whole grain Fig Newtons, a Babybel cheese, granola bar, & a bunch of grapes in a tree shaped silicone baking mold, with a Merry Christmas cupcake pick stuck in one.

This jolly Planet Box was for Beanstalk. It's still quite dark when I take him to school, not great for taking photos, but it's not every day he lets me make him a cute lunch, so I snapped this one at the last minute, by the light of our front porch Christmas lights. You can see them reflected in the metal lunchbox :)

Lunch was apple wedges, a little Lego box filled with almonds, ham skewered on a snowflake cocktail stirrer, a Santa stamped peanut butter pocket sandwich, holiday Goldfish crackers, a couple of holiday Oreos, & a chocolate treat. And a Lunchbox Love note - that wasn't printed blurry - that's my fault :) Low light means a slow shutter speed - and cold mornings mean shivering hands - which adds up to blurry photos - sorry!

That just about wraps up this year's Christmas lunches! I did make one more, but it's still on the camera, which is downstairs with the sproutlets & Sailor Boy. I'm upstairs with the paper & presents :)  If I get a chance I'll post it later, but right now I've got some gifts to wrap...

Merry Christmas to All!


  1. All so cute! I love the tree silicone cups ... so much I'm using one for tomorrow :)

  2. So cute! I love that reindeer!!

  3. I haven't been making fun bentos in awhile due to starting a job. This post has inspired me to do more.
