Willow's Lunch


I thought I would try some onigiri for Willow's lunch today. She had a boy and girl rice ball with cheddar for hair, a bologna and cheese hair bow for the girl and nori features. Very fun to make! I made the rice the night before (sushi rice for the stickiness) and molded it by scooping some of the rice onto plastic wrap, pulling up the edges and twisting tight, to form a ball shape. Once molded, I unwrapped and put them in little muffin cups and allowed to cool before adding the other ingredients. I popped them in the refrigerator to add to Willow's bento today along with some barbecue meatballs, broccoli and a little grapes/blueberries. She ate a little of everything except the blueberries. I guess she doesn't like them anymore *sigh*.

For the little girl, I used a small dab of ketchup with a toothpick to give her some rosie cheeks and black sesame seeds for eyelashes :)

This bento was added to What's For Lunch Wednesday.

Kelly! I love these little onigiri! And I like your method of molding them in plastic wrap the night before and allowing to cool. That sounds like a really smart way to stay safe.
