Minions Bento Lunch Box

The new Minions Movie comes to the Cinema in the UK on June 26th. To Celebrate I am taking part in a challenge to create something Minion related with Green Giant Sweetcorn.

One of my favourite treats are sweetcorn fritters. I love them served with Jerk Chicken and a minty yoghurt dip. However, not all children love Jerk so I have decided to make sweetcorn fritters for a lunch box treat instead. They go really well alongside a banana…we all know Minions love bananas!…and a little salad of cucumber and sweetcorn.

Sweetcorn Fritters Recipe

  • 60g plain flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 30ml milk
  • 1 small 198g can of Green Giant sweetcorn, drained
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil for frying.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt, egg and milk until you have a smooth batter.
Stir in the sweetcorn.
heat up the oil in a large frying pan until quite hot
add the batter trying to keep a round shape
cook for about 1 minute on one side before turning over to cook on the other.
You should make around four fritters, depending on how big you make them.
I made my fritter look like a Minion using Yo Bear Fruit strips and a small circle of cheese for his eye.
I cut the banana in half and decorated it with edible ink pens.

We love Green Giant Sweetcorn in our home, the kids love it’s sweet flavour and I love that I’m giving them something nutritious. It goes with almost everything!

This is my entry into the Tots100/Green Giant Minions Challenge

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
