It’s hard to say why this has become a thing for me seeing as most of my clothing is solid, striped, or plaid, but I’m dying for a pair of leggings with photographs of hamburgers printed all over them. Have you seen those? If I can stay sane, I’ll probably never own them. But that doesn’t mean I can’t customize other things with photographs of food.
Like, for example, melamine plates that don’t break and are perfectly light and transportable for nights when dinner is replaced by a picnic in the park. Thanks, Zazzle. (Here’s where you can make our own plates–they’re a perfect gift for yourself or for others.)
In addition to celebrating the fact that you can print food on plates from Zazzle (!), this post also contains the recipe for the second five-ingredient sandwich invented for that brand new/eponymous series. Though I intended the sandwich posts to be about merely making yourself something decent from what’s in the fridge, there’s no reason that simple sandwich supper or lunch can’t be shared. On custom melamine plates. In the park.
I’ve spent the spring deeply devoted to radishes. For dinner parties, I’ve been sautéing them, and when I find radishes with their greens in good shape, I make sure to use those too. (Wash and dry the greens right after arriving back at home. They go bad so quickly.) In this number, I turned those greens into a simple pesto, which is the second layer (after butter) on these tea sandwich-like concoctions. Atop the pesto and below the avocado, you’ll find radish rounds arranged in a flower–pretty enough for a picture on a plate.
