Choo Choo Vegetables
1/2 a butternut pumpkin
Preheat oven to 375F (180C) degrees. Line a cookie sheet with baking paper. Wash and peel pumpkin. Slice into thin rectangle shapes (have a grown up help you with this) and place on the cookie sheet and arrange as the train cars.
Wash, scrub, and peel potatoes. Slice into thin circles and arrange as wheels of the train. Slice into small squares and arrange as windows.
Cut zucchini into thin strips and arrange as a railroad track below the train and also use to join the wheels and train cars. Cut thin circles of zucchini and arrange as lights for the train. Place a broccoli floret on top of one of the train cars to look like steam coming out of the top.
Sprinkle with a little salt and brush with olive oil. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until tender. Serve on a platter for young children who are reluctant to eat their vegetables. This will be much more fun!
1 slice watermelon
1 celery stick
2 licorice sticks
1 leaf iceberg lettuce
Cut watermelon slice into quarters. Rinse lettuce leaf and place on a plate. Place celery stick for the body in the middle of the lettuce. Place one watermelon quarter on each side of celery stick for wings. Stick two raisins for eyes on the top of the celery stick using peanut butter (or honey) to secure. Place licorice sticks for antennas sticking out of the top of the celery stick. There you have a beautiful butterfly that you can eat! Drizzle with yogurt and honey dressing.
