We can all get stuck in our daily routine; going to the same places, meeting the same people and cooking the same food. I decided to break my routine and be a bit more creative in my cooking. A little confession: I might have cooked potatoes only once in perhaps 3 years. It’s not that I eat unhealthy; pasta and rice are just faster and easier. I made mashed potatoes and even cooked broccoli (another thing I never do). But of course my meal shouldn’t become too boring, so I added a little twist to my meal.
Food fun elephant lake
OK, as I am not the most talented food-magician: it is an elephant… And a lake.. and bushes and stuff. You might notice a bit of blue on the elephant’s ears. That is easily explained by the next picture (which was actually the first one I took). You see, just riiiight before I wanted to take a snapshot of my creation, Mr. Elephant decided it was the perfect time to fall over and take a swim in the lake. Great.

Anyway. Eating was fun. Anything as unnatural as blue food is fun.

    Haha, this is great! I love the elephant and the blue lake. What a great idea. I may try something like this next time I babysit; the little girls I sit for are not great eaters but I feel like making eating fun would help a lot :)

    But potatoes are super easy to bake! Just poke some holes in the top and put them in the microwave for 5 minutes each (depending on size.)

      Yeah I think removing the skin used to be the part that I didn’t like to do. Although I have to admit, I never baked potatoes in the microwave before. But my cooking habits have changed a lot since this post, eating mainly vegetarian now and am used to spending a bit more time on food ;)
