Helping Nana with a fun photo project, I was charmed by her creativity when she took lettuce from her play kitchen set and paired it with candy corn. Speaking of kitchen sets, I discovered a delightful and lifelike one for my oldest granddaughter six years ago on Amazon. Remarkably, this kitchen set is still in fantastic condition, having been through two kids and countless hours of play, I'm impressed. Here is the link to it:
