I made this lunch for my friend Mark to take home to have another time. He selected the theme and seemed happy with it. I love it when people in my life request fun food!
Left Side: Race Car – hot Nishiki rice pressed into a car shaped container lined with plastic wrap, firmly press down, then carefully lift the rice out of the container. Brush some salsa on top of the rice. 42 – cut the numbers out of cucumber with a cookie cutter. (I didn’t attach them with spaghetti since I didn’t want holes in the cucumber but it is a way to help the numbers stay in place). Black beans, corn, and salsa.
Top Right: Pistachios
Bottom Right: Racing Flag – checkered apple with cinnamon
- Follow this checkered apple tutorial
