Lunch for Tuesday, March 22, 2011

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.


  1. They're fantastic! They have perfect little faces, so cute!

  2. Those little minions are adorable! What a cute lunch.
