The Grinch

Today is the third and final week of  Bento Blogger & Friends' holiday ho-ho hops.  Follow along and see what other fun holiday lunches others have made.  I decided to go with a Grinch themed lunch.  It seems I am not very merry this year, so I can relate to him.  Plus, my daughter has watched the Grinch show every night since it aired!

Left box:  The Grinch is made of sushi rice made green with a little food coloring, candy eyes, black olive eyebrows and nose,  green bean Grinchy smile, and green shoe lace licorice hair.  He is surrounded by green beans.

Right box:  You can't have the Grinch without his side kick Max.  Max the dog is made from a hot dog and a broken pretzel used as his antlers.  (I copied the dog from bento monsters.  Click here to see the tutorial).  The dog is surrounded by clementine wedges, cherry tomatoes, black olives, and brussel sprouts.

Now, hop on over to robot, squirrel, and the monkeys and check out Eileen's holiday lunch!
