For me, joy is in the details. I love to spend that little extra effort
for the subtle effect that, when noticed, brings smiles to those who
see. It is for this reason that some of my carrot slices become flowers
or hearts.

This is a picture intensive tutorial. Click here for the whole post.

It really doesn’t take me more than a couple of extra minutes to do
this and it makes me smile. After all, how much is a smile worth in

Breathe deeply,
Laugh with abandon,
Love wholly,
Eat well.

We had dinner at a Chinese restaurant last night. They'd done carrot flowers.
I've never thought of using a bottle opener. When I did my cooking course we had all the special tools. If i want to be pretty I cut the grooves in with a paring knife.

I only did it to get the certificate. All the course taught me was that I couldn't work in a commercial kitchen. :) I can do some nice garnishes though.

I think it's the speed that would get to me. I imagine I'd become more efficient over time, I just wouldn't enjoy it as much if I were always rushed. I don't know much about garnishes, I just like to play with my food. I was told not to as a child, this is me re-asserting myself. *beams*
