Xmas Bento

I had prepared a Weihnachtsbento today and would like to show yet.

In the left bento dish is a Christmas tree from snow peas on a radish salad as a base. The tree is decorated with Christmas tree balls of red peppers and cheddar. In the left corner there is a Santa Claus boots made sausages with mayonnaise-edge.

In the right shell is on a salad bed a Snowman-onigiri with tuna filling decorated with nori, red pepper and carrot. Next to this are a tomato and two Physalis.

In both dishes, there are some gifts from carrots, red beets, turnips and meetballs and in the outer corners are holly made of cucumber and red beets.

Via Col Bento! A Bento Competition

First - sorry for my bad English.

This competition was launched to make Bentos known in Italy. Kitty's Kitchen and Semplicemente Pepe Rosa are the two blogs that have organized this competition. So now my review:

Asparagus pasta salad with antipasto

50 g Pasta
each 3 piece green and white Asparagus
Cherry Tomatoes
Mini Mozzarella
Parsley, Chives, Basil
Olive oil, Balsamic Vinegar, Honey, Pepper, Salt, Sugar

Peel the asparagus and cut into 2 cm pieces, then sprinkle with sugar and salt and bring about a hour. Then pour off the asparagus. The noodles cook according to instructions, let cool.
Peel and cut in cubes the scallion, mix it with oil, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper in a vinaigrette. Cut the tomatoes in half and add to the asparagus with the vinaigrette mix and add the noodles and mozzarella.

The main course was the salad in the lower bow. I decorated with parma ham and basil.

As a "starter" I packed up antipasti. On a bed of arugula were Valentinos (yellow mini-pumpkins) and cherry peppers are stuffed with cream cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and capers.

The "second gear" is a pickled egg (in red beet sauce) with Italian salami.

The "dessert" are fresh fruits. I have packed cherry, dragon fruit and kumquats.

The sweet highlight: strawbeery-pockies  verry delicious

Enjoy your meal.
