Rotisserie chicken salad Piggy Sammi's. Snap peas, carrots and barley in EVOO and garlic, grapes, cheese, kiwi flowers and carrot sticks.
Our little piggy's were inspired by the book Yum-Yum Bento Box. Pikko of Adventures in Bentomaking created an adorable Piggy burger and I knew it was perfect for today. This is the first item I have tried to recreate from the book since I bought it and I am excited to do more.
Our piggy's were made with the mini slider buns from Trader Joe's, bologna and nori. Inside the bun is a salad made from last nights rotisserie chicken with some mayo, stone ground mustard, black pepper and paprika. This is the first time the girls have had chicken salad and I am happy to report they loved it. However I think the piggy made it more fun and appealing...thanks Pikko!
How I pulled these boxes together shows the love for my girls. I woke this morning with a nasty pitched nerve under my shoulder blade. I have intense pain shooting up the side of my neck, limited mobility and a wicked headache. All I want to do is lay in bed and hide, but they begged for a bento and I didn't want to let them down. Both boxes only took 10-15 minutes total... just proving you can make fun and fab lunches in just minutes.
I just realized I am behind in my Bento Summer School assignments..well how perfect that I should make this for Week 5..wahoo!
