poinsettia bento

20 12 2009

leftover veggie curry and basmati rice tonight with some fresh veggies for… well, freshness.  top section:  broccoli, takuwan sticks, snow peas, blackberries in a heart-shaped cup, teeny tiny grape tomatoes, twist-cut carrot sticks.

poinsettia made of red pepper petals, green pepper leaves, and takuwan center (with yellow heart picks). inspired by pikko’s beautiful bento, as well as hapa’s lovely cupcakes, both featuring this seasonal flower.

prop-wise, we’ve got the new red pencil chopsticks sheri found for me at nyc’s own pearl river mart, a doily, and a candy cane with a bow.

That looks so nice. I like the “christmas star”-flower (like we call it in germany) so much. And it looks healthy with all the veggies. Thats is what we need in these days to get a balance to all the candy we eat 😛 Must attempt some weight reduction after christmas again, doh…
