This lunch is in celebration of Giraffe’s returning to the Seneca Park Zoo. (I was told that they once had visiting giraffes but it was before my time in Rochester.) I made this snack lunch for myself on a day that Carol and I went on a Habitat garden tour. It was my first time adding details to only part of a homemade tortilla chip. (I did the same with Carol’s zebra tortilla chips that I published earlier this week.) This may not look like much but the hummus, tortilla chips, and nuts make this meal over 400 calories.
Containers: U Konserve
Square Container: Macadamia nuts, giraffe tortilla chips – cut flour tortillas with a cookie cutter, place on cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray, spray shapes with cooking spray, sprinkle with paprika in spots (I used the end of a straw) and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp, green grapes, sugar snap peas
Round Container: Giraffe – carrot (cut with a cookie cutter), hummus
Other Giraffe themed meals:
I made this Homemade Giraffe Bread for myself in 2013.
I made this Giraffe Quesadilla for a nephew in 2013.
I made this Mashed Potato Giraffe in 2018 for my friend Dennis.
I created this 3D Giraffe Quesadilla in 2015 for a nephew.
In 2015 I made 3D Giraffe Crackers to serve with soup.
Thanks for looking at my assortment of giraffe themed food. If you make food that looks like a giraffe or visit a giraffe, I would love to hear about it.
