Decided to make some onigiri for dinner tonite since there was some left over food in the fridge. As to please little girl to eat more, I made her 2 of her favorite cartoon characters onigiri ==> Kuromi and My Melody.
My Melody turned out so ugly, hubby teased at the little eyes it had, I'm really not good at cutting nori.
While I was busying in the kitchen, little girl was extremely excited when she discovered what I tried to make her. She pulled her little stool over to check out clearer and asked bunch of questions on why, how and what, I gotta begged her out of the kitchen in order to finish my work, lucky me, she was distracted by Tom & Jerry on cartoon network til dinner time.
Little girl was pleased and kept admiring her plate when I placed it in front of her. She started off eating away those heart tomatoes and corns, stole one round onigiri from us as she don wanna destroyed hers ;p.
Finally she gave in to savor it, she was kind enough too to give us each the ears and kept the not-so-pretty My Melody for daddy's lunch 2moro! You know why, she was quite full after eating the round onigiri, some roast pork and down with 1/2 bowl of miso soup, but she finished the whole Kuromi onigiri!
These were the not-so-interesting round onigiri for hubby and myself.
Another happy ending dinner without any fuss occurred! Great 1st day of 2009!
