Winter Olympic Bento Blog Hop

The 2014 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony is tonight. I am joining a group of bento friends for an Olympic themed bento blog hop. After you view my post, be sure to click the button at the bottom of this post to see what special lunch Anna of Becoming A Bentoholic has made.

I think the mascots for the Sochi Olympics are pretty cute. So, I attempted to make a couple of lunches featuring the mascots. Boogs and I watched the short videos introducing each of the mascots. You can find them here, here, and here. I liked the Polar Bear video the best. Boogs liked the Hare video the best.

In the Laptop lunchbox: Sochi Polar Bear mascot made from rice, cheese Olympic rings, red & yellow pepper Olympic flames, honey chicken under flames, fruit & veggies in the Olympic Rings colors -  blueberries, red strawberries, yellow tomato, green broccoli, and black olives.

The Leopard is depicted a couple of different ways. Sometimes he has very tan fur and other times he has very white fur. I like this picture of the Leopard with a snowboard and used it as inspiration for this lunch.

In the ELB lunchbox: pb&j Sochi Leopard mascot with Kellogg's To Go cereal biscuit snowboard, boiled egg Sochi Hare mascot, cheese Olympic rings, salad, and plum slices.
