Perky little pilgrim
Last, but not least, what would Thanksgiving be without a pilgrim thrown into the mix?! Adventures in Bentomaking gives us just what we were hoping for with this sweet holiday bento box idea.
Mama Pikko chose to dye her rice ball (onigiri) with a tiny squirt of ketchup to make a nice peach color for the face. Nori is used for the facial features and a white piece of cheese works perfectly for a hood. Also included in this bento: chicken with Pikko's aunt's special teriyaki sauce, carrots, broccoli, corn, and grilled egg (tamagoyaki). Certainly one lunch idea that'll help your tot get excited for the upcoming holiday!
