Olympic Blog Hop-Summer 2012 London
Posted July 27, 2012on:
It’s that time again to pop on through the awesomeness that my gal pal bento bloggers created for the 2012 Summer Olympic games in London. Anything goes with this group so it surely won’t disappoint!
I wanted to do something a little different so I decided to check out the photos of Olympic shots in London. I found that they had hung the Olympic rings underneath the top tier of the London Bridge. That’s what I decided on. Not very Olympic, but something I would love to see as a tourist. Of course this is a terribly simplified version, but hopefully you get the point. The sides are made from Rudi’s Whole Grain bread, and the bridge crossings are the crust and heel of the bread. The small white decorations are Vegan brand cheese. The Olympic rings under the bridge and the LONDON are made from Stretch Island Fruit Leather. At the top left are watermelon Olypmpic rings and at the top right are crinkle cut cantaloupe pieces and an Olympic wreath made from rosemary from the garden instead of olive branches.
I also made a sad attempt at making the foot of Hermes. He was an ancient Greek god of the athletes and an Olympian. His symbol of the winged foot is known now to represent track, running, athleticism among many other things. He was also the personal assistant and herald to Zeus, king of the gods.
This didn’t really turn out like I wanted, but sometimes that’s the way it goes and I ran out of time for a remake. I hand cut the foot, wing, and fruit leather sandal. Small pieces of Vegan brand cheese are the detail on the wing. The columns on the sides are baby zucchini cut in half. I used black olive slices for the Olympic rings. At the top left are organic red seedless grapes and cantaloupe discus at the top right both with winged picks for decoration. Both lunches are packed in my Easy Lunch Boxes.
