Frosty the Snowlunch

Excuse the photos for the lame lighting.  The light over my dining room table burnt out and there is almost no natural lighting early in the morning when I bento.  This lunch had to get photographed in a less preferable spot.

It's frosty!
I'm pretty pleased with this but I admit it's probably because I'm anal and ridiculous and I love that I have a purpose to bento again (Christmas).  Plus, he's kind of cute, and my husband helped me make the scarf which just completely makes me happy.  He's so awesome sometimes! hehehe

Onigiri snowman with hot dog arms, apple peel scarf, nori coal lumps, carrot nose and Reese's PB cup hat.

Hotdog "SNOW" with hearts, diced apple, Co-Jack snowflake, and edamame

This was fun.  :)  I don't even care that he's not perfect (I REALLY wanted to use a crab stick for his scarf but since I'm still on the tail end of this cold I didn't get out to the Japanese grocery store to buy any) or that he should have been in a box that wasn't white.  Snow in Okinawa is wishful thinking, at best, but it's fun to be doing themed boxes again.  :)

Bento Lunch


  1. Teeheehee! I love your snowman! The reeces cup hat cracks me up!

  2. Aw, that's so cute. I'd love to get that in my lunch :)

  3. LOVE it! Adam (hubby) just got a bento box for his birthday and I've got to start getting crafty with it ... Did you purchase stamps for the letters? That snowman is awesome!

  4. Kaylie - I have a set of little mini cutters for the letters - I bought them at Big 1. They are located all over the island, and they have a pretty decent bento/tools selection, I think the one reviewed on Okinawa Hai is probably the closest one to you: http://www.okinawahai.com/my_weblog/2007/11/big-1.html :) Hope this helps!
