The great strawberry & pineapple fixation of 2010! So I did this to Ara’s strawberry yesterday and I liked it so much I made TWO tonight! She gobbled it up at lunch even though she usually picks around pineapple. I also thought I was being super clever when I made a tiny radish bowl and filled it with hummus. It’s the circle of hummus with carrot shavings in the right hand corner. Not exactly how I envisioned it, it looks like a hummus soccer ball! I also cut little circles out of cucumber and layered them with small carrot circles. It was supposed to be sort of a miniature of what my lunch is. I added a hard boiled egg, some carrot and cucumber wedges, and ta-da! Lunch for tomorrow!
As you can see I had a small photographical disaster with this lunch. I set my camera to adjust the white balance for florescent light and it gave me a sort of sepia/orange look. Photoshop auto adjusted the colors to this monstrosity and I, being the lazy ass that I am, left it as is! I think it kind of looks like clown food or like the plastic food they sell for kids to play pretend with. It’s ultra-color food! I tried to make carrot butterflies (man, I need to get some real cutters). You probably thought they were failed flowers, didn’t you? Haha. I try! I have hummus in the butterfly cup, red pepper slices, hard boiled egg, cucumber, orange slices, baby carrots, and grape tomatoes.
