New Thing #206: 'Wichy woman
Remember in the movie Mermaids how Cher's character, Rachel Flax, would only serve food that was cold and made with a cookie cutter? I always thought that was sort of funny, but in the house I grew up in, such whimsical dinners were not to be. But now I'm on my own, and if I want star-shaped peanut butter sandwiches for dinner, I'm going to have them! So tonight I made sandwiches shaped like stars, hearts and gingerbread people and served them for dinner. I surprised Kevin with it, and included a plate of scraps so we wouldn't waste any food (and because, let's face it, two grownups are not going to get full on sandwiches shaped like Lucky Charms). I made two each of organic herb turkey and swiss on whole wheat, one peanut butter on sourdough, one peanut butter on wheat, one smoked salmon and cream cheese on toasted sourdough, and one hummus on toasted whole wheat. There was also a salad, but it's really hard to get salad to hold a shape.
