I needed at least one Thanksgiving bento to post, so we made one today! Everyone loves a cute turkey, gobble gobble.
I am running on a low food count, since it will just be the 4 of us and a 9lb turkey for Thanksgiving. I know I'm going to have a million leftovers, so trying to use out as much as I can without buying more before Thursday.
Today, we have turkey & onion/chive cream cheese sandwiches on Nature's Own Multigrain Sandwich Rounds, topped with a cheese turkey! The feathers are alternating cheddar and swiss pieces, cut with a circle cutter twice to make the feather shape. The face is also cheddar, using part of a duck cookie cutter I have, the beak & waddle are swiss from the same cutters. Two sugar eyes make for a happy smiling turkey.
To the top, we have strawberry slices & grapes; to the upper right, some blackberries; and on the bottom right, honeydew, cantaloupe and watermelon. We had a birthday dinner the other night with lots of fruit leftover, so F&B are enjoying a huge variety right now.
We're packed in an EasyLunchbox, I love the large space when I want a cute sandwich design.
