This is from a book I have titled *Garnishing and Decoration* by Rudolph Biller who believes that the food we share should taste good, but also be eye-catching. I shared the photo of this garnish w/Bergy in her May Photo Challenge. Encouraged by her to enter it as a formal recipe, I decided to do so since it is such an easy & inexpensive quick fix that chgs an ordinary platter into something spectacular. Since 1 pic is always worth a thousand words, I posted the pic I shared w/her. *Edited To Add* -- I have now posted a 2nd pic to show just 1 example of potential use for the garnish. :-)
For our 5 year olds lunch box for either snack time or lunch for his first year at kindergarten that are reasonably healthy but will bring a smile to his face when he finds them. Kids tire of the same old sandwich, so I came up with this as a new and fun way to make sure he doesn't skip his sandwich!
I remember making this for my son all summer long, it costs about 6 cents a serving and is a real treat for kids of *all* ages, these are thick and totally refreshing! use any flavor Kool-Aid you desire! You will need a blender to prepeare these
Great to have on hand for a quick lunch or appetizer. You can add any of your favourite pizza toppings to the mix, onions, peppers, sausage, cheddar cheese, etc. my family prefers plain old pepperoni--boring but they love it)
Of all the kids' recipes I created, this one was hands down the fave. I watched a group of 8 3-5 year olds devour an entire loaf of French bread with this! And my cousin reported that her daughters thought they were sooo sophisticated when they made this lol. Have fun!
This is a good way to introduce kids to herbs. Rather than use a prepared pizza sauce, add your own herbs. Depending how adventurous your kids are, you can add things like fennel seeds, garlic powder, etc.
This drink was in a Family Fun magazine a few years ago. When poured carefully, this makes a red, white and blue drink for any star-spangled occasion. It separates by using the drink with the highest sugar content on the bottom, and the least on top.
These are really cute turkeys made out of apples that kids can make for school or just eat as a snack. They also make adorable Thanksgiving Table decorations. They can be made with either Fruit Loops or raisins. Rule: broken Fruit Loops must be eaten. Variations: head can be a cut out that is glued on or a large marshmallow with raisin eyes and a candy corn stuck into it for a beak.
