Christmas Bento

Santa BentoMy first Christmas Bento!

What do you think?

I thought that my first Christmas Bento should figure Santa, therefore created him using fried tofu for his face, and crabsticks for his hat, jacket and beard. The face details were added with nori and rice for the eyebrows.  I think that next time, I will add a slightly darker background, as his face doesn’t really stand out at the moment (white crabstick beard on white rice 😦 ) But at least he’s sort of recognisable …though the HOHOHO might help as well 🙂

The sides are a Christmas tree made from runner beans with carrot and egg decoration, some broccoli, a piece of salmon and a tofu bag filled with more rice.

This is my first Christmas/Winter bento but I’m browsing other blogs for inspiration, ie to be continued. ….
