I signed up to bring "veggies and dip" to Spud's kindergarten grad picnic and fairly quickly had second thoughts. Should I have picked something more popular? Popcorn or something dessert-y perhaps? I anticipated Spud's response to be one of disappointment;"Oh gee mama, carrots instead of cupcakes?".
So I thought I would at least try to make them cute. "Fish in a bubble" cucumber [done with a small fish cookie cutter] and "flower carrots" [like we've seen a million times in Asian restaurants ... thanks Hubs!] help to cute up the platter a bit I thought.
And in the end, Spud supported the venture all the way.
