Playing with food

August 22, 2010


I never had my own Mr. Potato Head when I was a kid. My one clear memory of it at somebody else’s house was during a babysitting event. My parents had dropped me off at the house of some people with kids my age. I can’t remember who they were, but I do remember that they had a Mr. Potato Head, and also that we spent quite a bit of time sliding down the stairs on our bellies causing me to be covered in rug burns by the time my parents picked me up.

Today when I went to the store, I forgot to get a potato to make a real Mr. Potato Head, so instead I introduce you his cousin, Mr. Pepper Head.

Head: red bell pepper.

Hair: cilantro.

Ears: tomatillo halves.

Eyes: fresh mozzarella balls and whole peppercorns.

Nose: jalepeño pepper tip.

Mouth: yellow bell pepper slice.

Items held in place with toothpick pieces.
