Sailing on the Turkey Sea

Ya know those sanity keepers I spoke of in my earlier post? Well, one of them is making Food pictures. I haven't really been able to make time for actual sketching, so I've been taking my art urges out on the kid's plates. The kids think it's fun and amazingly, they will actually eat 'funky' food if it's in a cool shape (gotta love toddler logic). Today we have a tortilla, turkey, and carrot boat, watermelon fishy-fish, and mozzarella rocks.

Here's one I did a few days ago. I promise it wasn't actually all green, I took the pic with my cell phone that I don't really know how to operate, lol. Anyhoo, it's chicken salad Butterfly sandwhiches (with wheat germ hidden inside, shhhhhh, it's fiberlicious!), chicken, cheese and grape flowers, and apple circle sammiches with grape halves.

That's so awsome. I'm going to have to give it a try. I am curious though, what do you do with all the scraps?

LOL, that's where Mom's ugly plate comes in handy. I usually eat all the weird little bits or I'll save them for salads, casseroles, or whatever.

This is so cool. I wish I had the skill and the patience. Come cook for my kid!

Thanks Joni! Just have to figure out how to talk Danny into letting us move next door to you guys, hee hee.
