i like to do silly stuff to my food. sure, i can try to use the excuse of making it more interesting for the bean, but in fact i'm just a dork. shocking, yes?
like when i was making patties for my salisbury steak and decided it would be fun to really put some love in that night's dinner.
whenever i'm making pancakes for breakfast, it always starts with "what color should we make them today?"
sandwiches are always more fun when they're something other than bread-shaped.
and leftover cookie dough makes for happy faces.
there are lots of other examples too, but i can't find the evidence. oh, well. you get the picture, right?
