Is it near Christmas yet?

Posted by Journal Mommy Yenny at 11:32 AM
Hello everyone....

Without hesitation ... yes, Christmas is near... very near...

It won't feel the spirit without making one Christmas-themed bento or two ..
Thank you so much Cookpad ^,^ for the idea.
Lately they are being one of my sources of inspiration.
If you do love Japanese cooking, the web is very recommended :) to visit.

So.... what's cooking?
Here is one for miss L

Here is another one for mister J

Lastly, mister B got his box too

Inside all boxes:
* Santa onigiri, wrapped in white and red kani, decorated with nori and carrot or ham for facial expression
* Snowman onigiri, wrapped in lettuce, decorated with nori and carrot or ham for facial expression. None of this onigiri in mister B's box. I just concerned the portion might be too much for him to finish.
* Sauteed bean sprout with red pepper bell
* Halved boiled chikuwa, filled with zucchini
* Yellow-mayonaised tamagoyaki, I refer to this recipe
* Flower-y ham
* Some grapes and mini mandarin pieces

Care to see all of them in one shoot?

I managed to keep simple side dishes since I intended to make the onigiri as center of attention. Besides, as for many details needed in making the onigiri, I was kinda prevent myself to get overwhelmed in preparing the boxes.

Hope the kids will enjoy it.
Today would be their last day to school before Christmas and end of year holidays.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ... \>o</
