Playing With Your Food March 23, 2012

A sign of creativity or going crazy?

This is the question I am asking myself! After processing how I was going to eat the ends of my loaf, I decided I was going to have a little fun with it. The foods I picked don’t need much prep and each meal looks the same. Too much repetition is starting to wear me down. I need a little something different. As a way to spark some change into my diet, I decided to make bunny toast! It’s as simple as grabbing a cookie cutter from my drawer that is full of them. Here is were the variety came back into my life!!! Do I want my toast to be the shape of a flower, a gingerbread man, a snowflake, a pumpkin, a heart… etc. CHOICES! OPTIONS! YAY!

I decided to go with the bunny since it’s almost Easter and with Easter being such a big ministry day, it’s been on my mind a lot. Why not start the celebrating off early with a nice piece of bunny toast! I had a little too much fun while I was doing this. Might be some form of 7 food delirium… I cut out my bunnies and then propped them in the toaster so their little heads were sticking out! Then down they went! Once they popped out, they were ready for a nice layer of jam. Yum, yum! I used the end pieces that I blogged about the previous day and guess what??? They tasted just fine! Maybe my rejection of the ends has been all in my head. Can you see the serious growth that is coming from this fast?

Now you might notice that there are some scraps left over after the bunny shape was made. I will admit that I didn’t eat the entire piece, but MOST of it. That has to count for something, right? I took the suggestion of Regina and I gave Jeremy the left over scraps to feed to the birds (he LOVES to feed birds). I also gave my little dog a piece from each bunny – so it really is a win-win-win. Many people benefited from the bunnies and the end pieces. Talk about a happy ending for all!!! (Except for maybe the bunnies, but they are made of bread and probably don’t have feelings)

    Haha. The funny thing is that I totally love to eat the end pieces! Mostly toasted … but my fav is the ends with a tuna fish sandwich … don’t ask why … it’s strange, I know! :)
