Edible Egg Holders

No, your mind isn't playing tricks on you... there really is an egg tucked into a tomato!

The clever idea came to me when I was looking for a snack. I wanted a hard boiled egg 
but I was so tired of eating them straight up naked, with a little salt and pepper. I thought, 
"Who wants to see picture of a hard boiled egg? How can I make this visually appealing?" 

So when I saw a ripe tomato on the counter, I dug out the innards to create 
a bed for the egg to rest in. Now my little egg snack has a home, feels snug
and cozy, and provides me with some extra fiber and a dose of Vitamin C!

Questions: Do you like to play with your food and come up 
with clever new snack ideas? Any inventions you care to share?

Yesss I like to play with food, but the results usually aren't as cute as this! Very nice twist on the straight-up hard-boiled egg.

Love this! You know I play with my food. Seriously, isn't that what it's for?

So cute! And this makes me so happy that I'm not the only one who plays with her food in this way. ;)

I hope the snack was tasty! And I wonder how it would taste if you baked the tomato, then plopped the egg into it...

Thanks for sharing, lady!

That is So cute! I love tomatoes! I'm not a big fan of eggs sometimes, but this looks delicious!
