Shrimp hearts – Simple makes the difference
I know I’ve said it before about how a simple smiley face added to the top of a dish can make it 10x more appealing.
The rice beneath those shrimp tastes good, but it looks boring. The shrimp is pretty boring, too, really, but it doesn’t matter. Make it look like a heart and suddenly an 8-year-old romantic is swooning. Dangle shrimp from edges and it’ll blow the mind of a borderline OCD child who ponders if it’s okay for the food to be on the outside.
Prepare four bowls in identical ways and watch the Libra in me twitch that they’re not -quite- identical. Before moving the out-of-sync bowl, I had the girls look to see which one didn’t look the same. Even putting this picture on the site makes me delete, reupload, delete, reupload, delete, reupload slightly uncomfy because while I don’t mind if pictures look messy, out of focus, etc, I crave balance.
Hmm. Maybe I’m that borderline OCD child referenced above. :P
