Thanks to some great ideas from friends we are trying out a new lunch menu. I had a package of cocktail toothpicks left over from my childless years when I used to have the time, energy, and inclination to entertain. These colorful picks have been taking up space on my shelf for years. Today Audrey and I put the to good use with a new lunch called Toothpick Tuesdays! She thinks the idea is great and even helped to cut up some items for today:
She kept repeating her 'toothpick Tuesday' mantra while she cut and helped me assemble the food. Here is the result (I did about half the toothpicks this morning and had Audrey help with the rest at lunch):
The outcome was mixed. She ate all of the hot dog; most of the cheese; and one tomato slipped into her mouth for several minutes. It reappeared later but she did try. Next time I am going to plan for a better selection of food. Any ideas? I tried to buy a cucumber but they were out at the store I stopped in this morning.
