Bento #53 - Chicky Family Brekkie

3 chicks representing papa chick, baby chick & mama chick. All made with bread and filled with egg mayo.  I used the heart-shaped pick for the crowns and beaks, nori for eyes and  ketchup for their blushing cheeks. Added a corn gummy to show them enjoying the corn together, blueberries in a chicky egg-cup and a banana
Inspired by Racial Harmony Week, I decided to do a Happy Family theme.  I think all things start from family?  If we are happy at home, we can learn to be gracious and live alongside with others right?

I saw Alice making some really cool bread onigiri and thought I tried it out using egg mayo as filling.  Kimi doesn't like cheese and egg now so I am still trying to re-train him although he ate these foods everyday when he was small.

Somehow, the bread onigiri don look as round and smooth as Alice's.  Not sure it's the bread or my method.  Hmm, I must find out. :)  If anyone knows, pls tell me ok?
