Protein with a cute face
|Insert freshly hard boiled egg & close|
|If you don't start out with a crappy egg,|
yours will look better than this! :-)
Put a dozen eggs in water that is boiling, let them boil for 4 minutes then turn off the heat. Let them sit for 15-20 minutes in the water and remove them to a bowl. If you want to put them in the molds, this is the perfect time. The eggs are still warm inside and easier to peel. Pop them in the mold, close them, wait about 2 minutes and pop 'em out and put them in a storage container. Perfect not just for kids but adults too. It makes getting in a little extra protein extra cute!
One of my favorite bento sites is Sugar Charms Bento Shop but I got my molds on Ebay at Retro Pop Tokyo.
Hopefully this will give you an idea of how you can make your meals a little more interesting!
