Desperate Housewives: Japanese edition

ICHIHARA, Chiba Pref. (AP) Kazumi Shimomura's kitchen table is cluttered with tools not usually associated with cooking: A pair of tweezers, a box-cutter and a digital camera.

Her culinary style is just as unique.

She sculpts rice colored with egg yolks into the shape of a dinosaur, fashions its eye with sliced cheese and strips of seaweed. Star-shaped pieces of okra adorn the belly.

"I just wanted my son to have fun when he goes to day-care on Saturdays," explained Shimomura as she uses tweezers to place tiny teeth-shaped bits of cheese in the dinosaur's mouth.

Please...don't eat me...noooo!
