Chinese New Year Sheep Bento Lunches (2)

Chinese New Year is tomorrow and it will be the year of the sheep. I may have to cook the reunion Chinese New Year Eve dinner this year. Even though it is not hugely celebrated in the U.S, I try to explain and teach Nikola the tradition every single year. I am sure those who are celebrating will be quite busy this week with last minute baking, filling 'ang pows' (red envelopes) with cash, cleaning and organizing your house etc.

I would love to wish everyone who celebrates 'Gong Xi Fa Cai'  and have a fantastic celebration with your family and friends!

Nikolai told me that the sheep I created in the first lunch looked like 'Shaun the sheep', to me, a sheep is a sheep, lol. This lunch was packed in a Planetbox Rover.

In this bento lunch:
  • Main compartment - 'Sheep' sandwich. Top is larger circle of Provolone cheese with numerous smaller ones shaped with a cutter. Face is free hand cut nori with candy eyes and legs are black seedless grapes
  • Upper left - Wheat crackers.
  • Upper right - Cucumber slices with carrot alphabets.
  • Center - Yogurt covered star
  • Lower left -Organic kiwi slices with a couple of cute sheep picks.
Here is another fun sheep bento which I created using my CuteZCute animal palz. The main compartment contains organic cream cheese and strawberry jam sheep shaped pocket sandwiches (stacked) and a cheese stick. I used the sealer from the set as a separator and filled it with strawberry pieces. He also had cucumber slices and a little sheep pick. This lunch was packed in a cute book shaped bento box.
