Continuing my exploration of egg moulds, Small Child proclaimed that the car shaped egg that I made for this lunch was 'the coolest egg, EVER!'. He also said that he told all his friends that it came from a special hen that lays car shaped eggs, I would love to have been a fly on the wall to witness that conversation! Of course a car shaped egg needs a car themed lunch to go with it, so that's what he got.
In this lunch Small Child had a pile of oatcakes; buttered & sandwiched together, a car shaped hard boiled egg in a silicone cup, raw pepper traffic light mini kebabs (red, green and yellow pepper, cut into circles and skewered on traffic light coloured jewel picks), slices of cucumber (under the pepper), green grapes, strawberry hearts and a small sliced plum (under the strawberries & grapes). He also had a portion of natural yoghurt in a car shaped tub, decorated with traffic light coloured sprinkles and a halved red grape. I finished the lunch off with a couple of road sign food picks to decorate.
Although it may look fairly complicated, this lunch didn't take much time at all to put together. I boiled the egg the night before and put it in the mould to 'set' in the fridge overnight, and the pepper circles were also cut out the previous evening whilst I was making our dinner, which meant that I was able to throw the scraps in with the rest of the veggies I was roasting, thus avoiding any waste. A little planning can go a long way!
