Christmas Gift Bento and Happy News

Christmas is a week away and my to-do shopping list is just as long as it was last week. *slaps forehead* This weekend I will get it all done, seriously! Baby Girl has been getting increasingly crabby at nights because of lack of naps at school and such, which means she’s been throwing tantrums and barking at her poor mother-slave. As a result, I’ve put the Santa Threat into full gear and boy does it work. She was pissed at me for not letting her eat a candy cane, so I said it was time for her bath, which infuriated her.

…it’s time for Christmas bentos! 😀 After the Halloween and Thanksgiving bunch of seasonal bentos, having holiday themed lunches just seemed like the right thing to do from now on. I won’t curse myself by saying I’ll do a lot of Christmas bento because by now I’m sure you all have noticed that once I say I’ll do something, some event or cold or bento drought comes along to muck up my plans. To kick things off, I made an ornament bento, though I’d planned it a little differently in my sketch. I have a bunch of rice blocks in the freezer and I used one this morning to make the two small ornamental onigiri. Curious how I got purple and red (ok, ok, it looks orange…) rice?
