1 Partridge in a Pear Tree Bento


I decided to make 12 bentos to represent each of the gifts from the 12 Days of Christmas song. Today is the first day because I want to end on Christmas day. This one turned out sparse and modern looking but I promise that some of them will be cute.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Vegetable: Broccoli

Fruit: Seckel pear

Snack: Pretzel sticks

Partridge: French bread with almond slivers, served with homemade cranberry cream cheese

I enjoy seeing different interpretations of the same theme. My friend Kristie from beneficial bento is also posting 12 days of Christmas bentos this year.

    I like it! Broccoli *tree*, pretzel *sticks*… theme bentos can be so full of visual puns! Nice partridge bread — that had to be difficult. (First I thought you might be using poultry of some kind)
