Happy Leap Year everyone! I couldn't let this once-in-4-years day go by without making a cute lunch. What better way to celebrate leap year than with - frogs! ( I hope you can tell they are frogs).
This lunch contains: 1/2 cup rice, 1 cup kalua pork, gluten -free bbq sauce, and various veggies - peppers, snap peas, and frogs made from zucchini. Here's how I made the frogs:
I cut long slices from zucchini, and used an upside down butterfly cutter to cut the top of the head.
Then I used an upside down pumpkin cutter to cut the mouth.
I decided it looked better on the flip side. Then I added eyes made from cheese circles, and nori face details. Red bell peppers made great flowers with leaf picks, and purple potato added the perfect touch of color it needed for the words. I sliced the potato raw, microwaved it in a Zip n Steam bag for 1 minute, then cut out the letters. When I eat it for lunch, I will remove the sauce and picks, and nuke the whole lunch in the microwave for about a minute, and toss it with the bbq sauce. Yum, I can't wait!
