We all remember those special, home-cooked meals growing up. Mom would whip up everything with a little bit of love. Generally speaking, our childhood dishes weren't pieces of art. Yes, they tasted fantastic; we're grateful for that (thanks, Mom!). None of them were forkful-for-forkful representations of, say, Nemo from Pixar's Finding Nemo, though.
With that in mind, there's one mom who's making waves on social media because her meals are art. We'll get into the finer details in a second but, long story short, this mom crafts amazing dinner plates for her son.
Melbourne, Australia's Laleh Mohmedi is a super mom. There's no denying it. She makes true pieces of art for her son, Jacob, and shares them with the world.
Her Instagram account, @jacobs_food_diaries, is a veritable portfolio of her art. Simultaneously, it shows the meals that Jacob has eaten in the past.
Each post details, firstly, what the art is. For example, the noodle-based dish that looks like Spongebob Squarepants is labeled as such. Mohmedi then lists what ingredients she used to create the dish.
Entries will say something to the tune of, "SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS! Hokken noodles with honey soy chicken, enoki mushrooms, tofu, and peas."
Not every entry is true to its origin. For example, Halloween inspired Mohmedi to dress up Carl from Pixar's Up as a devil. Are we mad about it? We're absolutely not.
We also wish we could taste the actual dish. If any of them taste even one-quarter as good as they look, we know our stomachs would approve.
Some recipes, such as the one for Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc., are posted on Mohmedi's website. Mostly, though, Mohmedi's work acts as inspiration to all of the parents of today. It shows us that, while time may be tight, it never hurts to put a little extra effort in for those we love most.
With that in mind, we invite you to be our guest and try some of these on your own. Have a great, artistic recipe that you make time and time again for your little ones? Let us know!
