Lunch Made Easy: Up on the House Top!

Only 9 more days on our *Advent Lunches* countdown... and Santa's getting ready to come down the chimney!

Lunch features Santa, checking to make sure he still fits down the chimney ;)
We'll call this a dry-run or dress rehearsal. lol

Little Miss has a crustless Sunbutter & grape jelly sandwich, topped with a slice of colby jack cheese. I then drew a brick pattern on it with my Betty Crocker Easy Writer pens. I also snuck on there our countdown number "9".

His mittens are made of provalone cheese, colored red with a BC Easy Writer food safe pen. Santa's head is a cupcake pick (purchased at Hobby Lobby and used before to make Santa's Body in a previous bento).

Around Santa and the chimney are a few mini-marshmallows to look like snow.
Top right are cucumber slices cutout with my mini-tree cutter. (Thanks BentOnBetterLunches for this idea today!)
Bottom right are Little Miss's fave - mandarin oranges.

All packed inside an EasyLunchBox.
