Do the utensils you send to school with your kids disappear? My utensils do. Utensils are like those missing socks in the laundry, they vanish. To prevent losing my precious utensils, I like to pack lunch boxes that contain finger foods.
While I solved the problem of losing utensils, finger foods means eating with your hands. And we all know kids aren’t the best at keeping their hands clean, so I like to pack Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes in their lunch bags. Unlike hand sanitizers, the wipes can kill 99.99% of bacteria and wipe away grime without irritating or drying out their skin. Plus, the convenient individual packet wipes are easy to use when soap and water aren’t readily available.Wet Ones® give me peace of mind that my kids will have clean hands to eat one of their favorite lunches – musubi, grapes, carrots, and string cheese lunch box.
Never heard of a musubi? A musubi is a favorite Hawaiian island portable meal that is made with three basic ingredients: rice, nori (seaweed), and Spam. However, to mix things up, I decided to surprise my kids with a bacon and egg musubi.
EGGS & BACON
While the rice is cooking, cook the bacon and eggs in separate pans. For two musubi, I use three scrambled eggs and two pieces of bacon. The bacon is simply fried in a pan, while the eggs will need to be cooked like an omelet.
If you have a musubi maker, fill it with rice and compress. The rice should compress to about 1/2″ – 3/4″ in height. Cut the compressed rice in half with a damp metal knife.
If you do not have a musubi maker, shape the rice into 4″ long rectangles using your hands. Make sure to compress the rice or the musubi will fall apart.
I now have a bacon and eggs musubi! that’s ready to be added into my kids’ lunch box, along with a few packets of Wet Ones®.
