Chopstick Beginner

Chopstick Master

The boys loved this. I also happened to have four chopstick packs from when the hubby and I went to Sakura, so I pulled these out to let them try it. That made the meal much more interesting.

With everything pre-measured, this came together really fast. I put my youngest in charge of the rice, since he wanted to help. The only thing that would have made it better for me would have been more sauce.
