Happy Monster Bento
Posted June 17, 2011on:
I found my last bit of bento mojo before leaving on vacation. I used a circle cutter for the whole wheat sandwich with ham & cheese. He has hard boiled quail egg eyes and provolone teeth. I broke a chocolate almond Pocky stick in half for his legs. Below him are cashews, Miss G’s favorite snack. The plum has a cheese squinty face with blueberry legs. The strawberry has a cheese smiley face too with a raspberry leg. I cut off the top but left it in there for his hair. The small face is BabyBel cheese with a black sesame seed face. I was thinking I was a bit crazy for trying the quail egg thing. They carry them at any Asian grocer and at Whole Foods. They are actually quite good and very similar in taste to chicken eggs. I like them a lot since my kids are 1 and 3. It’s the perfect portion size to keep around for snacks. It ended up not being such a crazy thing after all. Happy Friday everyone!
