Ho Ho Holiday Hop - Week 3 of 3
The Bento Bloggers & Friends are holiday blog hopping!
But we're doing things a little different this time - we're spreading the bento love out over 3 weeks - both to keep the fun going, and to keep the hops a little shorter, since our group has grown so big! This is week 3 of 3 so if you missed week 1 or 2 please visit the link above and hop through those as well they are fantastic!
The holidays are drawing near and while for most of us that means a to-do list a mile long. In all the hustle and bustle, shopping, wrapping, stamping, mailing, and elf on the shelf moving, it can down right make the season a little Grinchy.
No matter what this time of year means to you and your family I hope that you will enjoy hopping through all of these fabulous bento artists and spread some magic too. Keep hopping until you land back in our stocking. You'll find the link at the end of this post.
It's no secret we're TB and movie junkies, and Christmas is no exception. For the last few weeks I've been sneaking our favorite movies into the monkeys lunches.
A Christmas Story - It's just not Christmas for me until I watch it, and this year the monkeys watched it with me over and over.
Here's my lunch: Fra-gee-lay it must be Italian! On top of my usual tuna salad I added a 2 cheese leg lamp, a piece of toast and used a cookie cutter painted with food gel for the title, and of course fragile pretzels. I couldn't resist a little Ohh Ffffudge for dessert too.
So what are the kids watching this time of year when not indulging me? The ABC family 25 days of Christmas movies. Which bring us to The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. On top of holiday tortilla chips, a spinach and herb tortilla with turkey and cheese Grinch with fruit leather and cheese hat, tree watermelons, and carrots for the reindeer.
This week we added a new Christmas special to our repertoire Spongebob squarepants.
We've been doing holiday lunches since Thanksgiving so feel free to click back through previous posts after the hop for more ideas from Festivus to Rudolph, and I'll have new ones up tomorrow from this week.

Thank you Bento Bloggers and Friends for inviting me into your group and making this a wonderful year for me. I wish everyone a healthy happy holiday and New Year!
