Holiday Ho Ho Hop

I'm so excited to be taking part in my very first Bento Bloggers & Friends Blog Hop!!!

There were so many beautiful bentos from the first week and there's still more to come next week so be sure & check out the rest of the fabulous creations! (There's a little Link to each week on this Bento Bloggers & Friends post)

There are so many wonderful ideas out there (and floating around my head) for Christmas themed lunches, but I thought I'd go with my favourite Christmas symbol, the Christmas Tree. Here are a few of the trees we've been enjoying this year. . . 

Mini biscuit cutter tree of cheese & cut-out-off-cuts
Served with rice crackers (not pictured for some strange reason) and our favourite Pepperoni from Walkerston Country Meats

Ham & cheese biscuit/cookie cutter sandwiches with cheese star

Served in Tupperware square rounds

Ham & cheese (this is our favourite filling) pocket sandwich with crust off-cut star & trunk

Served on Ikea plate

My attempt at Christmas Tree cheerios/saveloys.

I uses a paring knife to create a few different cuts & then lightly pan-fried. Add a food pick for a star & squint a little :-)
