Z1 had requested for noodles instead of rice for this lunch, so I revisited the theme of little quail egg chicks. Today’s little chicks are sitting on top of “hay”. I made a little boy and girl chick for Z2’s bento, but wanted to do something slightly different for Z1 so I made him a hatching chick instead.
These quail eggs are really useful for small bentos, they are small enough not to overwhelm the size of a child’s lunchbox, giving the whole bento much better proportion. The kids love them and can gobble these up in one bite!
