Making a kids Garden Octopus and Isabelle's first Easter Bunny (3 Mar 2012)

Creative food fun for the kids

A casual lunch catchup with friends who have three young kids gets the creative juices flowing in trying to come up with a fun yet healthy dish for them. A quick search online comes across the Garden Octopus by Disney Family Fun. Very easy to make with capsicum, some dip and sliced black olives — make sure it has eight legs of course. We also some mushrooms so I came up with a Garden Centipede made with half cut button mushrooms, some dip, capsicum for the legs and sliced black olives for the eyes. The kids loved it and enjoyed eating them as well. Baby Isabelle was on board and is now 12 weeks and 3 days. She received her first ever Cadbury Chocolate Easter Bunny. Check out how their smiles match! It looks like Mommy and Daddy will have to look after this one for her until she's older — if it lasts that long.

Garden Centipede — would work well on a long platter
