vegetable art of 2009
If you remember from last year, vegetable trays are my signature dish at family events. I know it seems like the staple “single girl” item to bring, but I love fresh veggies! If I didn’t bring them, who would? Besides, I prefer different vegetables than the ones on your basic store-prepared tray.
This year, I continued the ‘abstract art’ theme as it allows for a greater variety of veggies and it is much easier throwing them on the tray as opposed to arranging them in color-coordianted sections. Even though I went with the easiest method, each of the five trays I made this season was carefully planned and preapared. Yes – five! I made two for Thanksgiving (one for snacking and one for supper), one for Christmas Eve, one for Christmas Day and one for the day after Christmas. Whew! That was a lot of vegetables, let me just say! I took photos of all of them except for the day after tray. I hope you enjoy the colorful vegetable art of 2009!
