爱。开心便当の3 Sleepy Froggies

Sleepy bento is the theme for today’s bento. I felt so sleepy and lazy to wake up this morning and my son too, but too bad we both have to wake up early as the school van will come at 6.30am to fetch him.  I got to wake up much more earlier than him to prepare this bento…urghhh…mom’s job, no excuse for me!   Both of us look exactly like the froggies in the bento this morning…so unwilling to wake up, so blur and feel sleepy…haha.

I made 3 inari sushi..yay..inari again, I need to finish these inari before it went expired. :) I filled the inari with some green rice which inspired by Lia in her edamame rice post.  I could not get edamame at my place here…poor little town. :( but I found some frozen broad beans which almost same like edamame, so I decided to use these to make the green rice inari.  After filling the inari with the rice, I cut some fish balls slices for the froggies’ eyes. Blur eye balls and mouth were cut from nori.

Inside the box, there are broccoli, baby carrots, mini pork patties, fish nuggets and apples slices.

Hope my son will not fall asleep in the class and enjoy his yummylicious green rice inari sushi. :)

Update: Added this post to Shannon’s What’s for Lunch Wednesday, Week 21.  There are many nice and creative bento in the post, check them out.
