Root Vegetable Latkes

I get inspired by all kinds of strange things. Since it has been snowy this week I have been cooking more and so I guess it's not surprising that I would do a few food inspired looks. Today's look is inspired by last nights dinner. I made root vegetable latkes. I made them with shredded beets and carrots (and potatoes and onion). The red of the beet looked so pretty next to the bright orange carrots I decided to see if I could find some eye shadow that might capture the spirit of the vegetables. I have to go to work today so I couldn't get too crazy but I think this gets in the ball park. (It is kind of funny that most of the colours I used today have food names:)
