Our son, Ty, loves art. He is more into abstract pieces. He designs, paints, draws, photographs, and it all blows me away. Every now and then you will find him in our kitchen concocting food art for our posts. We haven’t had much of a winter this year in Idaho. Yesterday, we got our first heavy snow of the year. Instead of going out side to build a snowman, Ty, decided to stay in where it’s warm and make an edible one! Smart young man! I was going to say, “Smart kid!” But, sometimes I forget he’s 6 foot 6 inches and almost 18. Yes, he’s still my baby! This cute little guy would make a great surprise breakfast for your kidlets. Have a thankful Thursday.
If you’re joining us for the first time, every Thursday, is “Thankful Thursday”. I started this a while back and it’s just stuck. Feel free to leave us a comment letting us know what you are thankful for.
Me, I am thankful for the healthy giggles throughout our home on a daily basis.
This was before he knew he was going to be eaten. The picture above was when he found out!
2 large eggs, whites only for body and head
2 whole peppercorns, for eyes
1 black olive, for mouth, optional, sliced thin
Carrot sliver, for nose
tomato pieces, for buttons
cheese stick for scarf, peeled thin
1 regular sized muffin tin
1 mini sized muffin tin
1. Preheat oven to 4oo degrees F.
2. Spray muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray.
3. In a small bowl, crack eggs discarding yolk, keeping whites; whisk egg whites with a fork.
4. Using your judgment, pour a small amount of egg white for body into regular sized muffin tin, pour the remainder for the head into the mini muffin tin; again use your judgment. Bake for five minutes, remove the mini muffin tin with egg white; continue to bake the regular sized muffin tin with egg white for five more minutes. Remove.
5. Assemble snowman
Our snow day!
This was his first test. He decided to use the whole egg instead of egg whites. His second test, he used egg whites. He said, “Using the whole egg was too yellow for the snowman.”
The man behind the edible snowman. Meet Ty, our son and food artist.
