We woke up really late, and we only had 30 minutes left to prepare to leave for school and day’s errands. My preparation time for this bird’s nest is 15 minutes – sauce, eggs and assembly. Thanks so much to reliable house helpers, the spaghetti pasta was cooked early.

Bento Tips

I bought a single hole puncher to make small circles out of the nori.

Apple changes colors when sliced. The apple flesh turns brown. This is called oxidation. To prevent oxidation or changing of colors, dip the apple slices in fresh lemon juice. Do not soak. Just dip it quickly. This also works for bananas.
