Mid-Century Penguins

Hello, my little friends.  Does your army work for forces of good or evil? 

Take me to your leader.

I love olive you.

Don't make a such a beak deal of it. 


So anyway I made these black olive penguins for New Year's Eve, thanks to this recipe from Foodie With Family.  Ri.Di.Cu.Lous.  Seriously worth a few extra minutes... And that's coming from me, and I ne-e-e-e-e-ver make fussy food.

As in, I like to make peanut brittle at the holidays because instead of icing and decorating cookies, I whack a sheet of brittle with a knife and call it done.

Appetizers on a tray with toothpicks and olives and cream cheese?  I feel so 1950s.  Jello salad is calling me.

I don't know what came over me, but since I went to the trouble of acting all domestic-y and Little Susie Homemaker-y, I wanted to document it.



  1. Okay I have to comment just to tell you that when I first saw this recipe (or craft project, I think it really is) jello formed salads is EXACTLY what i thought of!! LOL That, and Pan Am stewardess uniforms. Too funny. Glad you had fun! Happy new year Mrs. Cabbage!

  2. My husband has an aunt and cousin who always bring fun appetizers in the shape of real things. I have seen these little fellows before, at a family Christmas gathering. Thanks for the memory!


I love reading your comments and hearing what you think, so please chime in. Keep it civil. It's how we roll here at Cabbage Ranch.
