Tasty Food

Real Painting of my dish by Lunch Box Project!!!

My dish, Zesty Zucchini Ribbons, Artichokes, Mixed Beans with Wheat Fettuccine not only made it to the Top 9 List on Food Buzz last month,  but now it also comes with a real painting.  Please go check out the painting at Lunch Box Project. It is designed by Lisa Orgler, designer & illustrator of The Lunch Box Project, the blog where you can snack on food art daily. She says: ” I love food, but can’t cook, bake or use a food processor…but I can whip up a dish or two with my pen and paintbrush.”

The following post was published on July 20, 2010.  Hope you enjoy it in case you missed it.

Zesty Zucchini Ribbons, Artichokes & Mixed Beans with Wheat FettuccineI was on a rush Saturday lunch-time to get something quick, but healthy in front of my kids.  This pasta came to be a savior as I decided to pull things from my fridge and start prepping while my pasta came to a boil.  Not much thinking was involved, except to put the ingredients that were already in my fridge into an edible state.

Even though my beautiful picture shows the vegetables over pasta, I actually served it separate to my picky children. They don’t like to see their food mixed together.  I am being patient on how I serve their food as long as they are trying to eat their vegetables.

The outcome was delicious, hearty and beautiful! If you have never used a mandolin, or a vegetable peeler on slicing vegetables, it works great on zucchinis.  They not only come out beautiful like ribbons, but they also have a silky-like texture like ribbons, which makes eating them so much more fun.

Overall I was happy with my creation and results.  I also felt at peace that both of my girls ate their food and got rewarded with bubble bath play.
