I love rice. The minions, not so much. I have tried coloring it, cute rice molds, sweeter filling, fried rice of various types and so on. I once even made Rice a Roni and molded it! Still no luck. Apparently they believe that rice has no place in their bento boxes. Yet if I serve fried rice at dinner, most of the time they will eat it. Little ones are strange.
Today's lunch is hand formed onigiri (rice ball) with a filling of 5 spice pork and mushrooms. In between the two pieces I have raw broccoli. One of the onigiri has strawberry ears. Yes, the top fit on over the ears!
The bottom level consists of curried eggs with celery, grapes, and strawberries.
