Had fun with sausage shapes this morning. I also found mini chikuwa this weekend — each one is only about 2 inches long! Perfect finger food for my son. Packed in my tiny 260ml box:
- crab made of chicken/apple sausage, with eyes of cheese and nori (secured with honey)
- chanterelle mushroom rice
- mini chikuwa filled with cheese
- cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
- green figs
My lunch also has a sausage shaped like a rabbit, tiny Champagne grapes, blanched broccoli, and a scrambled egg ball with smoked salmon and green onions. Packed in my 470ml Afternoon Tea box.
My husband’s version has the cute dialed down slightly, with a leftover sausage crab (but no eyes). Packed in a Lock & Lock bento set (minus the water bottle) — each layer is 350ml.
