Of Green Piggies and Angry Birds

If you can't beat them, eat them! Little one's favourite game on the Iphone. He asked if I could make him one after we came across a few that we saw here. Needless to say, I obliged :) I thought they looked pretty cute. Moreover, it looked like it was going to be fun. More like craft that culinary. The challenge would be the smaller parts namely the eyes and the nostrils, since I don't have any of the cutters.

Onigiri made from normal cooked rice (just add a little extra water to make sure it's sticky enough to be shaped). Red bird got its color from tomato sauce while piggie got its green from some fresh and heated pandan juice. Eyes came from cheese (cut with a straw) and seaweed. Piggie's ears were peas while nose was cucumber. Red bird got its nose and feathers from carrot. Just use your imagination and whatever you have in your kitchen to get the color effect. I made a simple teriyaki chicken to go with the onigiri and vegetables.

Little one was overjoyed to see it. He asked if he could have the entire bird family next!! He raved about how his friends admired his lunch box :) As long as he's happy, I am super happy!


wow, you made your own bento too! for the time being, i only know how to admire them! nice!
