Oh, I had grand plans for today’s bento. When I picked up the Monkey from school last Friday his nose was painted red and he had an antler hat on his head. I knew then and there that I was going to make a Rudolf bento come Monday. Never mind that I was cooking for a friend’s party on that same Monday, never mind that I was participating in a marketplace Saturday and Sunday night. It was going to be grand! Sweet potato snowflakes, broccoli trees with snowy branches and ornaments, wrapped presents under the tree, and of course a hand drawn gingerbread Rudolf complete with a bright red nose!
Yippee for cookie cutters.
