Logan's Inspiration

I opened the link to Sandra's monkey platter page, and was looking at the pictures. Logan (4yo) was watching Toy Story on the computer sitting next to me. He took one look at the photos and asked for a tray of cucumbers and baby oranges (clementines).

I made him a tray with what I had in the house. He did not ask for the marshmallows ;-) but he did want an ice-cream cone afterwards.

I make him trays like this often, but I thought it was cool that the images inspired him to ask for one.

I'm attaching a photo. The starfruit came from a recent supermarket trip after I read the link about doing better (I think it was something Joyce or Pam said, and it struck a chord).
