Yesterday, Tz began his once-per-week horse riding class in school. There is a horse riding academy just next to his school. I am so excited for him because he has always been a little apprehensive about horses galloping around his school. I hope these classes will help him to overcome his fears.
So I made this bento for him for his lunch in the riding academy to soothe his nerves. Well, he did finish all the noodles, but left the horse untouched “¯∩¯” and he stayed away from the horse during the lesson. Oh well, he has 3 more lessons to go, hopefully by the next class, he will mount on the pony at least.
Stirred Fried Egg Noodle – bacon, corn and carrots with shoyu and korean anchovy sauce
Horse – I selected an oval shape small MayQueen potato and used the fruit peeler to carve the shape of the head before steaming it. I used light and dark shoyu to shade the norse area. Nori for eyes and straps and cheese for the forehead.
