The Polar Express

Tonight, we went on the polar express train ride.  So, I had to make a polar express themed bento for tomorrow's lunch.

 
 
Top Left:  Carrots, black olives, and yellow sunburst tomatoes.
 
Top Right:  Clementine (cut to look like a sleigh bell) and Trader Joe's candy can joe joes. (when you ride on the polar express they give you hot chocolate and cookies.  How can you have a polar express lunch without cookies?!)
 
Bottom:  "polar express"  cucumbers, train sandwich with sunbutter, bananas, and blue corn tortilla.
 
 
This was packed in my EasyLunchbox.....speaking of, have you entered my giveaway yet?  It ends on 12/23.  Don't forget to enter for your chance to win! (click the button below)
