Bentolicious #036
Today's snack bento was my first Christmas theme bento. I made 2 boys wearing the Christmas hat. The boys were made from rice balls, crab sticks and nori. It's easy to make for busy Monday morning. Inside the snack bento box : some chicken fillets cooked with teriyaki sauce, steamed baby corns, star shapes carrots & takuwan (pickled radish), and strawberries. I never mentioned takuwan for pickled radish before, until I read Debra's blog, Sheri's blog, Megan's blog, Susan's blog for quite sometimes now. I bought my takuwan from the Korean Supermarket near my house and always have them stocked in my fridge.

The above bento boxes are from my collection. The square one comes with 4 different sizes, 4 different colors and 4 different lids in every pack, while the oval one comes with 3 different sizes, 3 different colors and 3 different lids in every pack.
The boxes are very convenient to store.
I bought the oval one when we had a family trip to Taiwan last September. In Taiwan, bento is known as bian dang 便当. Bento accessories can be found at Daiso, Komonoya, Tokyu Hands around Taipei and other major cities.
For the square one, I bought them in Jakarta.

Thinking how lucky your kids are, to have a mommy who is really creative with the menu.
