Playing with my food. Inspired by a deformed tomato from the garden, I scoured food stuff from the pantry and spice rack and came up with this mother and chicks. The deformed tomato is the base of her body and tail. See the apendage on the left side? Separate tomato for her head. Their wings are mint leaves, nest is dried Chinese egg noodles. Their beaks are star anise, their eyes are sesame seeds. Momma's head crest is fresh red chili pepper. The branch is cinnamon stick and rosemary sprig. Look closely at the "worm" in her beak. It's saffron threads. Everything is edible and all the fresh green items are from our garden.
