Here's lunch #whoknowshowmany! It's those tiny minions from the movie Despicable Me! haha. Ever since we saw the trailer for this movie at our last cinema outing, I've been wanting to do the minions as a bento lunch. They're so cuuuuute! I love how they keep popping all over the place. I also love the little girl doing the popping of her cheeks. She's adorable! Do you recognize their eyes in this lunch? Yes! It's the same candy eyes that Susan uses! Despite her busy and frenetic schedule, Susan took the time and was incredibly generous to send me some sugar candy eyes. I can't tell you how I feel about this because I just want to say, Thank You Thank You Thank You to Susan! And to all you amazing bento community. Not to worry, I have sent something to the Yuen family as well (something super amazingly yummy!).
Today is another Thursday outing for Keira. They're heading out to some kind of amusement fort. They'll be bouncing around A LOT, probably looking like 'minions' themselves hehehe. Of course, this is yet another ham sammie (Keira loves ham!) and I cut out the little minion's denim overalls from a pepperoni slice. Then I topped that off with blue icing. Seriously, the eyes are what makes this minion look even remotely like, well, a minion! Then I added some more minion heads all around the central one. I used black sesame for their strands of hair. On the bottom tray of my bento box, I added fruit salad made with apple squares, mandarin oranges and watermelon. Yum!
Once Keira's bff Miss B gets back from her vacation, we are going to watch this movie together. Let me know if you've seen it too!
