Do you think dressing a wedge of cheese up like a mouse would make an actual mouse more or less likely to eat it all up? Would it be intimidated by the new intruder and back off or would it be flattered by the delicious likeness and devour it all at once?
I see these little mice come through my submissions all the time, but for some reason it only seems appropriate. I don't think I've ever had one or seen them in real life, but something about them just screams Christmas for me. Maraschino cherries just aren't on my radar in the warmer months. I bet I could fit about a half dozen of these guys in my mouth at once, who's up for a challenge?
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!
