    it's been hectic lately, but i had time to throw together a quick bento tonight from leftover chanukah dinner. main box: a hearty salad (lettuce, celery, portobello mushroom, hard boiled egg, cherry tomatoes, red onions, cucumber, chick peas, lemon-pepper tofu) topped with a pepper jack "star of david," plus three potato latkes - a chanukah classic!

    fruit sidecar: pomegranate seeds, "lace" baran from daiso, kumquats, cherries, and a gummy cherry in a silicon heart cup.

    plus a dreidel for extra holiday spirit!

      Yum! I always wanted to try latkes! I've never eaten one. These look delish.

      Happy Chanukah!

      Cute dreidel and good idea to use it as photo prop.

      Love latkes - I can taste them already. Happy Chanukah my friend (I always spelled it starting with just the "H" - oops).

      hey bunches, thanks for your nice words, and don't worry, the H spelling is totally legit! (hebrew doesn't transliterate well so there are numerous possible english spellings for any given hebrew word!)

      Happy Chanukah! Lots of sparkling details and beautifully crisp presentation...the blue hearts are a lovely touch to your latkes, and the sidecar is totally charming. Just love the gummy cherry in the heart cup--such a nostalgic sweet accent!

      Thank you so much for offering this photo under the CC license. I've put it at the top of my article on Best Hanukkah Gifts for Kids. I love latkes - especially with lots of onion - and I don't just eat them in December!
