Um, well this is the bento counterpart. Packed in a PlanetBox.
Yeah. I don't even know where to start with this mess.
Hmm. Okay, well there's the Big Dipper of mini wagon wheel pasta. When I was making a fresh batch of pasta the other day I was musing to myself how they sort of looked like little ball ornaments. That's what "inspired" this
Moving to the left are some clementine halves and blueberries. For some insane reason I tried to put stripes on the clementines to make them look more "ornamentish". Yeah, that looks ridiculous.
In the top side section is a Little Dipper of sauce for the pasta and some turkey pepperoni. Another crazy insane notion on my part. My messy 3 year old girl with a pot of marinara. What was I thinking? Clearly I wasn't. Good thing she was wearing a navy shirt, that's all I have to say.
Across the top are some cucumber chunks and a little cocktail fork to eat the pasta with.
The tiny treat section holds little ornament icing decorations. My kids just love those things.
After I finished orchestrating this lunch I realized things had gone terribly wrong. In a last ditch effort to make it look a wee bit better I tossed around some vintage-looking Christmas light bulb cupcake picks. I really don't think they are going to fool anyone though. This lunch is a bento Don't, for sure. ;-)
