Brandy's New Years Day Dinner!

It has been a long standing family tradition to have some type of cabbage on
New Year's Day. One of our all time favorites is Grandma Peggy's Cabbage
Rolls.  Yummy!   While I was getting things together for the upcoming New
Year festivities, I thought it would be cute to create something for my
daughters to join in the fun.  To start, I had to create a doll sized
roaster oven.

Roaster Oven:
First I started with a rectangle paper-mache box.  I spray painted the
outside a gloss white and the inside gloss black.  I hot glued a black pony
bead to a black button and then glued that to the front of the box for the
on/off/temp knob.

 I used a label maker on a small font to make letter and
number details.  Black pony beads were used for the feet.  I finished the
oven using black foam paper for trimmings and handles.

Cabbage Rolls:
I used stripes of light green felt and rolled and hot glued together.  Sauce
is made from red felt cut into irregular shapes.

As a little extra treat I also made my daughters a pork and sauerkraut
dinner to go with their already made crock-pot.  Please see my posts
on how to make the crock-pot by clicking here.

Pork Roast:
I painted a crafter's sponge a pale tan.  For roast slices I used tan foam
cut into irregular ovals.

I used tan rubber bands cut down into small pieces; served with mashed
potatoes (white pom-poms.)

 I am so happy Brandy shared this fun holiday doll meal with us. We wish you a very Happy New year! Please join me in thanking Brandy for her creativity!
