My 20 year old niece came over for a cute and easy weeknight dinner. I was inspired by this but wanted it to be very easy so I bought two bread bowls from Panera Bread. I showed the cashier what I was trying to accomplish and he was helpful.
Salad – lettuce, carrots and ranch or vinegar
Cauliflower Cheese Soup – Boil cauliflower florets and make a 2 cup cheese sauce (double recipe). Add the cooked cauliflower and a little saved cauliflower water to the cheese sauce.
Bunny Bread Bowl – Panera bread bowl. Cut ears from the underside of the bread lid, and make a nose from the lid bread, dried cherry eyes – attach with toothpicks. We tried to use toothpicks to attach the head to the bowl but it worked better to just have the head sit on top.
Bunny Danish – I followed this recipe except that I did not add egg to the cream cheese.
My critique of the meal: We were happy with everything. It was a easy, delicious, and fun meal.
