I have to admit I don’t spend a lot of time on lunches for my kids. We take packed lunches almost every day but they generally consist of sandwiches, carrot sticks, fruit and a home-made cake. I’m lucky in that both my little monsters are good eaters and will usually eat most of what I put in front of them. That said I’ve recently been having a bit of an on-line love affair with the Bento style lunches created by the lovely Lucy at capturebylucy.com for her two boys, so when I came across the Tots100 #hoopsandcrosses competition it seemed like the perfect opportunity to have a little go myself.
One thing I learned while doing this is that tying things together with chives isn’t as easy as they make it look on The Great British Menu! I already have lots of bright silicone pots and so on from my baking and I decided to use the ones with feet as I think they’re extra cute. Princess Aurora wanted to join in (apparently), so we got her to play a game of hoops and crosses with my son. The board was a chequer board of ham and cheese with the lines drawn in carrot sticks and chives.
This post counts as my entry to the Tots100 #hoopsandcrosses competition.
