For today's lunch I have minions. And I don't mean devils/demons etc. I mean the cute little yellow minions from the movie Despicable Me. My son and I were watching it the other night and I thought that they would make a great lunch theme.
I made my minions using white rice that I cooked with some saffron. It always gives a nice natural yellow color. I added some nori for the mouths and glasses bands and I had found some small sugar eyes at Michaels last week and I used those. Their clothes are made from a blue fruit roll up. In the rest of the box are frozen chicken nuggets that will thaw by lunch time, green beans that I sauteed with green onion, garlic and soy sauce, baby carrots, grape tomatoes, strawberries and a container with BBQ sauce in it. These little minions make me smile.
