HOLA! Hope everyone is doing GREAT! I know I am, I mean this is going to be a 3 day weekend, which means more mini time for me. Woohoo! So with all the cakes I've been making, I figured I should make a prep board to go with them, so here it is! Enjoy!

For those of you that don't know, I am of Cuban decent and my grandmother still lives in Cuba. On my last trip there, I brought back some Cuban cigars, just to have, as I am not a smoker. They have been on my shelf for years now, and thought I would never have a use for them. Well boy was I wrong! How many of you have purchased those mini boxes of cigars to put in your dolls house study. I know I have and though they are very nice, they are just to plastic looking for me, so I decided to make my own. I took my REAL Cuban cigar and placed it in a plastic baggy with water so it would moisten the leaves and I would be able to unroll it. Once I did that, I carefully cut the leaves to a "mini" size, took a pinch of the tobacco and rolled a mini cuban cigar. I then added a bit of glue to the leaf, to keep it from unrolling. Here is the final product. ENJOY!

There's nothing I love more then a simple piece of bread and CHEESE. Sometimes all that rich food just doesn't sound good. Or even a plain old tomatoe and mayo sandwhich. Anyways the other day, while I was in the kitchen fixing myself a cheese sandwich, I looked at the cutting board and decided it would look great in miniature, so here you have it! I added the jar of pickled onions just for show. LOL
