Veggie Sculptures at the Farmers Market
Had a silly Saturday morning cutting up veggies and showing kids how to stick the pieces together with toothpicks. Parents got into it just as much as the kids; I told them to brush some olive oil on the sculptures and slap them on the grill. The event was Arts in the Park, coordinated superbly by Eileen at the Webb City Farmers Market. I was representing Spiva Center for the Arts. Okra is sticky. Bitter melon looks like a spiny cucumber. Little eggplants make great heads. Slice tiny radishes and you have eyeballs. Good, healthy fun.
