AARP asked us to create the shape of the United States out of food. Yeah, easy, we can do that. No problem! Then the curve ball…they wanted each state defined. By color. Even Rhode Island… and Alaska… and Hawaii.
If you’ve never been grocery shopping by color, try it. It’s worth it to watch the cashiers face when you go through with one monochromatic cart after another. Also, a big thanks to our UPS delivery guy who is from Alaska and showed up about the time we were styling that state. We had formed the inside passage wrong and he corrected our green beans.
