fun with food

So I rushed home on my lunch break today to have lunch with the boyfriend only to find out via text he was also on his way home from work and that whoever got home first should start cooking. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

I decided to go cheap fast and easy for lunch since we have chicken defrosted for dinner tonite: sandwiches.  I piled my toasted 10grain whole wheat with slivers of cheese and turkey but when I got to his, I decided to play a little joke. It started out as just a face then I realized that I could make it look like Ferb from Disney's Phineas and Ferb with the uneven eyes/eyebrows and green hair (broccoli on the plate since we were out of lettuce with tomato slices with a dab of mustard for eyes and onion slices for the eyebrows) 

He walked in right as I was putting stuff on the table and said: What's for Lunch? I told him I was having a half sandwich but he got to eat Ferb's head. Bewildered, he looked at the cutting board and adjacent plate with his food and laughed. Said it would be only fitting to watch an episode while we ate, but I had to leave before it finished :(

GOOD NEWS: I get to work a 12+ hour shift this Friday of Disney's Phineas and Ferb Live 

BAD NEWS: He started smearing mayo and more mustard on the sandwich before I got to take a picture of it.

There's always next time--and I am a firm believer in playing with your food, but only in the most artistic and hilarious of ways ;)

I love Autumn! It is my favorite time of year, mostly due to sweater weather but also I love pumpkin flavored anything, marshmallows in my hot chocolate and the leaves changing colors. I don't live somewhere where there are true seasons but the air just feels different in Autumn. 

I am definitely a hat person (could you tell from all the hats in my etsy shop? ) and love making the perfect hat for everyone I know. I love to share my creations and love selling them so more people can feel how comfy they are and enjoy them.

This season, I'm expanding my line to be more cartoony. I've been spending more time with my neices and watching cartoons and really love how happy the characters make them. In honor of that, I'm designing more tribute hats to their favorite characters  to add to my Lorax fan tribute:

and my Cookie Monster fan tribute:

Stay tuned for more Dr. Seuss inspired pieces, Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock character hats, AdventureTime character tributes and some Disney fan art. 

Happy Autumn Everyone!
