I saw this somewhere or other and thought I’d try it for Christmas Dinner 2011. It is two black olives for the body, a small ball of mozzarella cheese for the belly (split the belly and stuff the mozzarella ball inside), and carrot for the nose and feet (kinda gross if you think about the nose which was cut out from the feet).
It was a great trial, but it was also merely a cute decoration. The error in this trial? Most of my family will not eat a black olive even if it would save them from starvation on a desert island.
Moral of the Story: Cross check your ingredients against the food preferences of your family and friends. Unless you want to finish them off yourself over the next week. Which could be fun too.
