Slice cucumbers into medallions. Arrange carrot strings on the face of each, depicting current time from the world’s population centers. For extra credit, use one slice to depict local time from Antarctica and another for the final resting place of the ship wreck Titanic.
Lay these out around the edge of a dinner plate. In the center, build a pile of cherry tomatoes crowned by a radish rose. Step back and admire your work. You’ve learned a fun and nutritious way to distract yourself from the certainty of death.
