Expert Tips

Let the kids make a zany zucchini cowboy head centerpiece for the table. Slice off one end of a large zucchini, and stand it on a plate. Decorate the top to look like a face, attaching food pieces such as carrot slices, raisins and grapes with toothpicks. Top it off with toy cowboy hat and bandana!
