dollhouse: summer meal by FatalPotato dollhouse: summer meal by FatalPotato
Here is my entry for :iconclay-charm-lovers: Summer-themed contest!

Summary of long description: This is the food I like to eat in the summertime.

Long description:
Up front is a plate of seared ahi tuna on a bed of quinoa salad with a side of avocado. This was actually a real dish my mother prepared for us a few weeks ago. The real quinoa salad I inhaled had quinoa, cucumber, celery, goji berries, and a special sauce, so I tried to include all of those goodies in the miniature version. It was a healthy yet appropriately substantial meal, which I thought was perfect for a summer dish :)

In the heart-shaped vessel lies a strawberry pie. Since strawberries thrive in the summertime, we visited the local farm and bought a buttload of fresh strawberries and made some in to a pie. It came out pulchritudinous (thank you thesaurus.com!). And so I did what I always do when I see pretty food, make it in clay. That's the first thought I have when I see attractive grub now :dummy:

There's a cup of passion fruit bubble tea too... I find them very refreshing on an eyeball-scorching day.

Small vase of teensy wild flowers in the back to fill empty space.
