It was starting to get cold again, and the sky was overcast. And I'm falling sick. Making a pretty flower for the boys' bento helped to brighten my day!
The rice is mixed with a little ketchup to give it some colour. Two cheese flowers were cut and overlapped, and pinned onto the rice with a jeweled food pick. Layering the cheese flowers felt like I was scrapbooking.
Don't you love those sparkling jeweled food picks?
In the bento, there's chicken karaage, broccoli, rice mixed with ketchup and top with cheese flowers, and two chocolate mushrooms!
I'm sure the boys will eat their mushrooms first!
For the time being, I'm happy with my flowers, real and edible, while patiently awaiting the arrival of Lady Spring =)
