Curry with Chickens
Wow, it's already Friday! I can't believe that the first week of school is over already. Here are some cute chicks to usher in the weekend with my fav recipe - Curry rice. It no longer phases A-chan when I add things to the basic curry recipe. This time I went back to spinach, chopping it very fine in an attempt to get it past the 7 year old radar. When we ate the first meal of the batch (one batch will usually make 3-4 meals for us) she took a few bites before challenging me on the green stuff. "It's spinach," I said. She proceeded to eat the rest with no comments. Can I consider that a spinach victory?
In the bento: Vegetarian curry with two onigiri on top, egg sheet chicks, grapes, plum, steamed green beans and a carrot butterfly.
The egg sheet ovals for the chicks were cut with scissors and placed onto the onigiri with a little bit of curry gravy to hold them in place. Their beaks were cut from carrots and the cheeks were sriracha dabbed on with the end of a toothpick. The little flowers are egg sheet with red sugar dots in the center and they have leaves of fresh parsley.
