Totoro Toasted Cheese

I included a little dairy-free Ranch dressing in the mushroom sauce box for Z to dip her cauliflower. It was a long shot, but it paid off! She actually gobbled it all down! Woop! Since Totoro is a nature spirit, I added ladybug and flower picks, a mushroom pick, and a sprout pick in her cauliflower and grapes. I love how it turned out!
I made a soot sprite out of a home-made gluten-dairy-egg-free "Oreo" adapted from a recipe I worked on for the MOMables blog! All I had to do was slice a mini marshmallow (I used a mini Dandies marshmallow from Chicago Vegan Foods - one of the two brands I've ever found without fake Blue dye!) and add a little natural black food dye with a toothpick. Chocolate syrup would have worked just fine too. You can pretend the sticky cut marshmallow sides helped stick them on, but they were kind of stale since I'd left the bag open since Thanksgiving. So they may or may not have been licked to make sticky...
smiling boy fork for a fun way to eat it, if she wanted.
