Niblets for the Nisse

The Nisse are pleased with these vittles. Grapes, sugar snap peas, and cherry tomatoes on the left with smoked salmon, the last of the kamaboko, and a lussekatter bun to round it out. Tomorrow is the last day before break and I've got one little Nissa home with an upset tummy. Hopefully she'll be back at it soon.

The Nisse are trying to filch Annie's lunch today. They want her chocolate trees and mushrooms, her cheesy soldiers and snow. They are dangerously close to her kamaboko fish in the middle and are partial to the dill marinated cucumbers, pickles, and cheesy tree. Christmas is close and that always makes the Nisse hungry but still happy little nuts!

Christmas is Coming!

It's been a month full of celebrations with lots more to come! I've been making bentos but not posting. I admit, its because I've used most of my online time to look for present ideas. Also, after last Friday, I was distracted by a gamut of emotions surrounding the great tragedy. But here I am tonight, snuggled in with the baby (can you call a two year old a baby anymore?) and done with my online window shopping. As I looked through my pictures, I found a few bentos from the past few weeks and figured, it's about time! Most of these are accompanying bentos, meaning I included a thermos of this, that, and the other thing. Two pictures are nearly the same except that one shows the this, that, and the other thing as a homemade burrito wrapped in foil, sometimes I do that with chicken too. I'm going to come back later and give more details but here's a few of the unusual things in these - gjetost cheese, pickled herring, lussekatter (lucia buns), mini apples, and cream cheese stuffed cherry tomatoes just to name some. So anyway, here they are:
