Enzo loves rice especially with beans. But eating rice and beans requires sitting at the table and me supervising the ordeal to make sure that the rice goes inside the mouth and not all over my already disgusting carpet. Cleaning rice off the floor is a form or torture, in case you didn't know. So when Enzo needs to have a snack or eat solo I like to use the rice molds that Bekah sent me from Japan. Yesterday as part of our snack duty I made star, teddy bear, and heart shaped rice for the kiddos.
Despite my husband's warning that I was complicating my life I still made the 20 shaped rice. It was easy since the rice was made in the rice cooker and with my mold I can do 3 a a time. The really hard part about this snack ordeal was making Cheddar cheese from scratch. Jut kidding.
I found this on-line store that sells rice molds for $4.00. I might have to order some other shapes.
