Can it be yet another chicken and egg bento?! Well, in my defense, I have seen several chicken and egg bento recently, on various blogs around here...so maybe the idea just sank in, or I thought it was an idea we were passing along? Oh all right! We just like chicken! And the little quail eggs are just so cute; I can't stop using them. I just learned you can hand-shape quail eggs into a round shape, so what do you think I did today? It worked, and it doesn't take that long, either. Just a minute or two. Today's egg was so small that when I made it into a sphere I thought it looked just like a little pearl. I put it between the chicken pieces like a ... pearl in a shell. But if you don't buy that, let's just put a face on it and call it a cute egg character. I also added some sweet corn with edamame detail and my standard carrot flowers. Fruit cups hold strawberry, cherries and grapes.
And by the way, Sonoma Bento has uploaded the bento interview we did on Monday. If you'd like to listen, it's at her blog HERE. Thanks Michelle!
I am a former research scientist turned stay-at-home-mom of 2 who got started with bento in an effort to help my kids learn that eating healthy and nutritious foods can be fun and cute. I make a bento lunch for my 13yo (8th grader) son & my 10yo (4th grader) daughter every school day, and post the pictures on my sherimiya ♥ flickr photostream. Here in this blog is where I describe each bento, and you'll also get a peek inside our family adventures. Thanks for taking a look, and please let me know what you think ^-^!
