Sometimes you just love something so much you want to eat it just so it can be a part of you. Totoro! Bring y our leaf hat and befuddled expression and get in my belly!
So I know sometimes we all say something is too cute to eat, but honestly, do we mean it? No. At least I know I don't. But these, honestly, for reals, are just way way too cute to eat. I would like to find a way to dry and varnish them so they never ever change.
When I was in Mrs. Nakagawa's 8th grade Home Ec class in, um, a long time ago, we learned to make a bao of some sort but they were just boring looking. I wonder if I could have gotten extra credit by making mine look like a dinosaur. It's time to get back to my middle school steamed bun chops. I need to eat some pork filled bunnies!
If only every teacup came with an expectant little bear faces. Don't worry bears, I'll give you a lovely warm home in my belly where you can hang out with your friends roast chicken, potatoes and kale. It will be nice to see them again won't it?
