Sometimes I get in these weird moods...where I just have to do something completely silly, like make up rules for a created holiday or go to the midnight showing of a teen movie while eight months pregnant. Just crazy.
The other night, I decided to make buffalo wings for dinner. Don't get all excited - I totally cheated and used the ones from Costco. I pulled a bag of carrots out of the fridge to serve and then reached for a box of gelatin (so the Boy wouldn't completely starve). I picked the orange flavor. Setting all the options on the table, I giggled...then I added a bowl of baby oranges.
The kids loved it and it was almost entirely unintentional.
Now they want me to serve them a blue dinner. Hrmm...blue food. Blueberry pancakes, blue yogurt (easy enough to color the vanilla flavor). Maybe I could soak some pear halves overnight but that is just too much food coloring. Might need to re-read some Percy Jackson books to see what blue foods his mother served him on his birthday.
What suggestions do you have for blue food?
