Its Chinese New Year Eve today, and we have been so busy getting ready for CNY! The crowds are crazy at the supermarket as everyone stocks up for all the dinners and visitors for the next few days. I made the kids a quick sandwich for lunch today with snake design cut freehand from cheese, to welcome the Snake Year.
I used food markers for the first time today to draw the eyes and stripes on the snakes, and placed them on top of heart shaped sandwiches. The mouth is made of a strip of chocolate bread. I peeled some kum (tangerines) for the kids and arranged it on top of some grapes, and they have some strawberries as well.
Please feel free to add in your snake themed bentos/ Chinese New Year bentos into the linky below.
Now I have to run off to get ready for the reunion dinner tonight. Wish everyone a Happy and Properous Lunar New Year! Gong Hei Fatt Choy!
