Bento # 767

Once again, reality put a money wrench in my plans. I'd planned the two quail eggs to be baubles on a christmas tree... but then one of them cracked duriing cooking so half of the stuff poured out into the water, leaving me with only half an egg.. And that half looked t me like the top of a candle.,.so after some experimentation where I had to reluctantly admit that the half that was left would NOT look like a bauble no matter how I put it.. I decided to give in and make it into yet another candle..

Bento #275 - Snowman

I don't usually do charaben, but I guess I have to have one winter-themed charaben this year! I've wanted to make an onigiri snowman pretty much ever since I started bentoing, but I didn't get around to it.
The snowman is accompanied by seasonally appropriate green asparagus and red glazed carrots (the red is food dye), and a bit of veggie burger with a Thai basil leaf.
