Willow's Lunch


I have wanted to make these little biscuit koala bears ever since I saw them on Susan Yuen's site - author of Hawai'i's Bento Box Cookbook. You can see her tutorial for them (and little bunnies too) here. They're real easy. I filled the biscuits with shredded chicken and cheese and Willow loved them, although she did ask if they were crabs lol. She also had some yellow kiwi and blueberries which she said she didn't like, a strawberry and a little cherry tomato on a pick with a cheese flower.

You're seriously so creative! I need to remember these ideas for when my little boy is old enough to eat lunches, the cuteness would make me wanna eat it!
