I worked my tail off on the last post, so this one is going to be - just for fun!
(Here's another post with the first Mel-Mel, the sugar-holic.)
By the way - this is NOT food!!
I love foods that look like other things! And utensils that make me smile!
So, I'm sharing some of them with you guys.
The happy couple.
A Bing Cherry, that looks like a one-eyed dog to me. (Got Kibble?)
A Pluot, that looks like a heart, where I sliced it.
(And has the same body as the dog.)
Doesn't "Pluot" sounds like a small, foreign car?
It's a hybrid of a Plum and an Apricot. And really good!
And here's a slice from a Nectarine. Same heart shape. They love me!
If you don't use all your greens in a timely-manner, something really cool happens to them!
(Probably everyone knows that, but me.)
OK, this one cracks me up!! (Pun intended.)
I believe this is a Chinese Pear, but don't hold me to it.
It was SO good! (Hi, Mel-Mel.)
Strawberry lips, with too much lipstick.
Thank you for blotting. You may kiss me now.
When my adult children were little, they used to see which one could be the first to draw a smiley-face in a new jar of Peanut Butter.
Sometimes I'd win, because if I remembered,
I'd do it in the car in the parking-lot of the store! :)
Speaking of Peanut Butter -
When I ate it, a couple of years ago, (before I became a raw-foodist)
I'd worked up a sensitivity to it.
I got so bloated, I looked like a parade-float.
I can almost hear my kids high-fiving each other right now.
Karma's a bitch!!
Speaking of kids -
One of my daughters sculpted this awesome bronze bear and fish.
It's appropriately titled, "Play With Your Food".
And I'm the proud owner of this one!! (Thanks, Kid!!)
My daughters bought this apron for me and then created the design.
I love desserts! and when I give raw-food demos, that's what I go for -
Desserts! I am the "Dessert Diva". :)
(Thank you, Girls!! I love my apron!!)
This is a little, spud Salt Shaker.
There was a Pepper Shaker too, but it broke.
It had a pissy-face anyway, so that's OK.
"Feeed meee!! Gimme nooodles!!"
A fun Tooth-Pick Holder I found at the same antique store where I found "Snaggletooth".
"See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil." (Yeah, right.)
Look at the background -
My fruit-bowl looks just like a smiling clown-face, which makes ME smile!
And that's a good thing -
Especially since todays mail brought me an envelope offering me -
a "Free, Pre-paid Cremation". :(
In my present condition, (alive) I would think that would hurt.
Have these people seen me?! I'm afraid.
Why can't I just get the winning-notice from "The Prize Patrol"?
SEE, this is why I need fun stuff in my life!!
And fun is found in so many different forms, even in 'playing with my food'.
However - CATS do NOT like it when you play with THEIR food!
Or eat it.
"Mmmmm... tastes like chicken."
Since I wanted this to be a fun post -
(And who is funnier than the great Erma Bombeck?!)
I leave you with these words - a tiny portion from a chapter called,
"Leftovers That Refuse To Die" -
dated 12/17/91, from her fabulous book, "Forever Erma".
"My secretary and I are compiling a list of leftovers that not only refuse to die,
they reproduce. Heading the list is her pasta salad.
Out of a pound of macaroni, she fed a family of six for two meals, ate it for lunch every day for three weeks, and at that point still had more pasta salad than she originally made.
She eventually buried it in the backyard."
Signing off for now,
