Fun With Food

I promise I'll get some meaty posts about birds up here soon--sorry--it's been a heckuva bizzy week so far. But in the meantime, here's another installment of Fun With Food.

We had a nice breakfast last Sunday at The Wooden Nickel in Millersburg, PA, following Julie's big weekend-long art opening at the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art. The garnishes used that morning on the breakfast plates included orange slices (perfectly reasonable for breakfast) and ornamental kale (huh?). It got our creative Fun With Food juices flowing, so we created a breakfast plate masterpiece entitled "Pancake-legged Hula Girl with Kale Miniskirt."

Except for the plastic-coffee-creamer-container pillbox hat and the orange rinds, this art is totally edible. And just LOOK at the masterful use of blueberries! Who knew?

We were so happy with it we nearly took it back up the road to the Ned Smith Center to add to the Zickefoose exhibition running there through February 16, 2008.
