Fun with food

Taking pictures of food is fun, isn’t it? I wanted to share a few fun food pictures we have taken over the last couple months, which I have neglected to publish.

Egg explosion!

This morning I made hard-boiled eggs, and one exploded while cooking. Clare liked it anyways. (I had actually been going for soft-boiled, but they cooked a bit too long).

Colorful plate

I heard somewhere that it is healthy to eat a variety of differently colored food. My plate yesterday had green, orange, purple, white, and brown. I don’t think it gets much better than that.

Taco Town!

One of my favorite tv shows is Saturday Night Live, and I enjoy watching old skits on YouTube. I have also introduced the kids to these. They particularly like the fake commercials. One of our favorites is the Taco Town commercial, which is making fun of Taco Bell creating ever bigger combinations of food. Clare recently found a Mexican store in town and bought a bunch of hard taco shells, so I got inspired to try the soft and hard shell combination. It works really well. I have not added blueberry pancakes yet though.

Artful plating

Meg has become a big fan of artful plating of food. Here are a couple of her recent creations.

Smiling roll

Awhile ago we got a roll from the bakery which ended up having a bit of a strange shape. It looked like it was smiling at us. We were certainly smiling after eating it.

This roll’s looking at you kid
