Shel Silverstein Bento Blog Hop

Giving Tree Lunch

Today was Shel Silverstein’s birthday so along with some of my Bento Bloggers and Friends we are having a bento blog hop. I love The Giving Tree book so it was a natural choice for my lunch theme.

My husband ate this meal. For artistic purposes it does not have a lot of food but he had several more pretzels, cheese, and yogurt on the side with this meal. It was his idea to make soft pretzels for the tree trunk. My nephews were visiting when I made the pretzels (I timed it so I would have help eating them) and one mentioned that the pretzel was bent; that was my goal. I struggled with how to make the tree stump that is found at the end of the book. Somehow I remembered Little Debbie Swiss Rolls. My grandmother who is now 97 loves them.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Tree: Homemade soft pretzel, spinach leaves

Apples: Cherry tomatoes with leaf picks

Tree Stump: Little Debbie Swiss Rolls cut in half and stuck together with a little bit of chocolate frosting, chocolate frosting details

Mini Dippers: Mustard
