into fish shapes

they look so cool smile

Having now seen the lunchbox ideas on the site I feel woefully inadequate,
my soggy marmite sandwiches with an apple and pack of crisps seems like child abuse
sad wink

What a load of bother for a lunchbox...eat what I make kid.

Looks like it is how she earns tbh, but fun!

I would just like to be able to make decent boiled eggs full stop, never mind fashioning tham into shapes sad

SquishyCinnamonSwirls Wed 07-Sep-11 19:35:05

Oh they're so cool! I like them, and I know dd would too. (I'm a sad sack that gets out the cookie cutters and makes silly shapes - dd had heart shaped sandwiches today).

I want boiled eggs for my lunch tomorrow now!! Not sure my office will appreciate that - how do i stop them smelling?!?!

Dd has an insulated, stackable bento lunchbox. Highly recommended, it's fab !

I feel I 'need' a bento box and lots of cutters...

Oooh, I love those!

FelixCited Wed 07-Sep-11 20:08:21

is there a amazon link * Apocalypse*
although I have had some wine, so likely to purchase asap whilst the urge is within me

LoveInAColdClimate Wed 07-Sep-11 20:10:47

That whole website is brilliant!

FelixCited Wed 07-Sep-11 20:15:50

glad to have made you a happy bunny LICC are you going to create one for tomorrows packed lunch?

I'm currently lusting over a www.planetbox.com/ but can't find them for sale in the UK atm.

Our first DC is presently still in my uterus so can't do it for him/her but might do one for DH (and me) grin.

LoveInAColdClimate Wed 07-Sep-11 20:34:39

Ooooh, those Planet Boxes look great. I quite fancy those for our lunches.

Firawla Wed 07-Sep-11 20:42:27

they look so cute i might get some of these moulds and do this, i think my 3 yr old may be quite impressed by shaped eggs

TheGhostNotMe Wed 07-Sep-11 21:07:02

I'm going to chance it - the eggs are in boiling. If they stink in the morning I will leave them in the fridge - or go and eat my lunch in my car!!

Love the idea of the moulds for the kids though, finally managing to get them to eat eggs, so this would be fab
