Dare to eat me!

Last Sunday, which was another gorgeous Indian Summer day, my son and I drove to Kovačica (Ko-VAH-cheet-sa), a village about a half an hour from Belgrade. This predominantly ethnically Slovak village is known throughout the world for its naïve (self-taught) painters. The tradition was started in 1939 and advanced in the 1950’s when several peasants took to painting scenes from their daily lives. Neither of us paints, but we did put our artistic talents to work on the Wiener Schnitzel my son ordered for lunch by rearranging the fries. Maybe I should have saved this one for Halloween.

Bibi, How much fun you had with your son! I wish I could decipher all the ingredients. I am still sad I won't see you in Paris! :( Boo hoo, but I DO understand.

I love doing that! When I was a teenager I had a thing for smiley faces, and would find them in anything. (Or make them.) This brought a smile to MY face.

Creativity strikes at the oddest of places and times! Very fun (and nice lighting!).

heeheehee! "Louis" thought you had taught your son not to play with his food - instead you are right there aiding and abetting him!

Both of you: go sit in the corner facing the wall for an hour without dessert!

Such fun! Reminds me of my friend Joie—she's in her 80s—who sculpts little birds and animals out of the white part of her dinner roll.

Ahhh! I love your wiener schnitzel composition! I'll dare! I want to spritz that lemon wedge over the meat and dig right in:)
