In fact, I almost wanted to forgo making this Snoopy Christmas bento today. I was doing another bento for a bento project before this and the sky was turning dark when I was done. But I had already cooked the ingredients for this and did not want to waste them, so I quickly rushed this out. I made a last minute decision to leave Woodstock out so I can complete this faster. But somehow, the bento looks a little incomplete without Woodstock.
Ingredients used for Snoopy Santa were rice, nori, crabstick, hanpen and egg. Hanpen is a Japanese ingredient, similar to our fish cake.
The side dishes for this bento were cheese coated fish fillet, corn and broccoli stir-fried with mushrooms. I also added in some of my Christmas pasta bought last year, I bought some new designs this year, but yet to open the pack! I also bought some Christmas food picks this trip, but did not get to use them, looks like I've to keep them till next year, sign. :(
Here's wishing all of you a Merry Christmas in advance. Sorry for the lack of blog updates this holiday, will try to blog a little more often when my boys go back to school again.
