The village horticultural show happened last week, which meant that the house was full of delicious home-made cakes that I wasn’t allowed to eat and my mini-siblings were entering all sorts of craft competitions! My favourite competition was probably “Create a Vegetable Animal”, partly because I got to eat half a watermelon (see the turtle) and because the results were just brilliant. It made me wonder who made the silly “Don’t Play with Your Food” rule because… who wouldn’t want a whole kitchen full of things like this:
Myrtle the Watermelon-Turtle
Not a vegetable animal, but still delicious!
So, kids and adults… have fun and be creative with your food!
P.S. Sadly all of these creatures have now been eaten. Pineapple owl was chopped up and used in a fruit salad.
