Mustache Bento for Movember!

I mustache you not to laugh at my lunch...   Today's the first of November, the month that's come to be known as Movember <--- click if you don't know what I'm talking about :) So I packed my Sailor Boy a mustachioed lunch:

He's got cajun-spiced chicken tender mustaches on a bed of cheesy rice with broccoli & cauliflower, decorated with a whole bunch of tiny cheddar cheese mustaches. On the side, a heart-shaped egg embellished with a mustache pick I made myself *. And a handful of pistachios topped with a little mustache-shaped tin of mints he can keep at work. Mustachioed pistachios, heheh :)

  To make a mustache pick, trim a few bits off a bat pick & voilà!

UPDATE: Sailor Boy loved his lunch & sent me a pic if it on his desk :

He knows I'm rarely satisfied with pics taken at night in our poorly lit kitchen, so he sent me a daylight one.  Hmm, looking at both of them,  the one I took is not that bad! You can see the little cheddar mustaches better in his though :)


  1. Cool theme for a grownup lunch.
