Monster Mike

Do you remember him, Mike from Monsters Inc?
This is one of our favorite family movie =)

I had always admired the coloured rice in some of the Japanese bento blogs. However, I was not keen to buy the rice colouring packets online to try. I had been putting off preparing Mike as I thought he would like funny with little pieces of broccoli stuck on him =p Thanks to HBB, colouring the rice green is now a breeze! All I had to do was to mix the packet of colouring with warm rice. The coloured grains magically melted away as I mixed them with the rice! I had some fun amidst the morning rush of preparing lunch and getting the boys ready for school =)

So for the first day of school, the boys had a monster in their lunch to start off their week after a one-week Spring Break! In the bento, we have a strawberry, some florets of broccoli and cauliflower, and panfried miso chicken thigh fillet.

It's going to be a busy week, since it's Teacher Appreciation Week! A week of activities lined up, organised by parent volunteers, to thank the teachers for their hard work and effort. Time to pick up the momentum, and get things going!
