I wasn't really sure how I wanted to decorate the potato dumplings, but I knew that I wanted them to look like little ducklings or chicks. The ducklings didn't turn out as good as I wanted them to be, but I guess they're quite acceptable to look at.
By the way, the salad bowl was my husband's. He didn't want to eat anything big for dinner because he had had a quite big lunch. He's the healthy eater in the family unlike me...;).
