Fake Food.

Yi-Ling had her monthly sunday night themed dinner yesterday. This month's theme - "food that looks like other food" - in honor of April Fool's Day. I must say it's the strangest and most perplexing theme yet.

I ended up making "Pie a la Mode" which was really just a chicken pot pie with an ice cream scoop of garlic mashed potatoes. It turned out really well, tho I used 1 quart (yes a whole _quart_) of heavy cream for the filling.

Some other favorite of the night, was "Apple Turnover/Eggrolls" and Ronnie's strange "Meatloaf with Ketchup". Really it was kinda disgusting honestly. It was made out of walnuts and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. And the ketchup was made from strawberry syrup. It amazingly looked like meatloaf tho when you put it on your plate.

Also of import was that it's definitely funny how many of my friends read this blog. Everyone is impressed by you, Doris, cause you post, with pictures, every day. It's something people aspire to. Of course, all my friends know everything about your life, but you don't know anything about their's. :P

Oh, your "pie" looks great! Nice with the dill. I love blogging, but everyone who reads this doesn't know everything about me. Hee, hee, I have my own secrets!

Hi there,
We're doing a piece here at The Daily Meal on "optical illusion" foods. In other words, foods that look like other foods. I came upon this entry on your blog while researching. It's perfect for what we're doing! I was hoping you'll allow us to use your image for the piece. Of course you'll get full credit, and we can link back to your site if you'd like. Also, I love the other photos on your flickr page. It would be fantastic if we could use the "egg rolls" and "meatloaf" in the piece as well. Please let me know as soon as possible. You can email me at jbruce@thedailymeal.com. Thanks so much!

Happy Holidays,
