Harping on the topic, I took the opportunity to ask him if I could create an Easter bunny for his lunch. An affirmative yes from my son! Yippee!! But it has to be a 'hare' not 'rabbit' and must be brown and not white. He was almost right - hare has black markings and longer/larger ears/feets/legs than rabbit.
Using a hard-boiled egg, the Easter hare was dyed with light soya sauce first. Next, pink ham for its large long ears and feets. Facial with seaweed, whiskers were spaghetti and lastly, some ketchup on its cheek. (The egg shell did not peel off nicely and hence, the uneven surface.) On a mini food tray from one of my bento box, I placed a boiled lotus root, two green grapes, a cherry tomato, some blanched broccoli and a flower carrot.
Yesterday, I prepared teriyaki chicken sushi roll, packed with blanched broccoli, cherry tomato and green grapes for him to bring to school. Not forgetting to throw in a few foodpicks and luckily, the little fellow did not complain.
