Hanukkah Bento

Since Hanukkah just started I decided to make a Star of David in my breakfast bento today to honnor all my Jewish friends and blog readers.
Because I don't have any Hanukkah cookie cutters I free-handed the Star of David... so I apologize if it looks a bit wobbly.
  • Blackberry Light Yogurt (I didn't have any blue yogurt so this was the next best thing)
  • Crispy Flax (Gluten Free Cereal used to make the star)
  • Golden Raisins
  • Plum Amazins (Diced Prunes)
  • Rice Chex (Gluten Free Cereal)
  • Pineapple (If I had thought about this sooner I could have cut the pineapple into little gold coins)
So there you have it. A super yummy breakfast bento honoring Hanukkah.
You know, even though my family is not Jewish we had a Menorah when I was in high school, and we celebrated by eating traditional foods and learning more about Judaism. I love that my mom brought me and my siblings up to be open minded and curious about other people and their religions and traditions.
