The black I used is actually chalkboard paint. And that is what I used to paint the body of the tray as well.
Even the magnet caps can be switched out.
And, the simplest idea of all! Use it as a tray.
PS: The cranberry salsa is pretty spectacular but I'm a fan of cranberries. If you are too, check out the recipe. (Yes, I keep a few bags in the freezer so I'm prepared when the craving strikes.)
12 ounce bag cranberries
4 Tbsp. fresh cilantro chopped
1/3 cup lime juice
1/2 teasp. salt
1/4 teasp. pepper
2 minced jalapeno peppers, minced
2 Tbsp. grated onion
1/2 cup sugar
Begin by blanching the cranberries. This only takes a few minutes. When they begin to pop and split open, remove from heat and drain in a colander. Place them in a blender.
Add the fresh cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper.
Add minced jalapeno peppers,grated onion and sugar.
Blend. Put in container and chill.
Serve on crackers with cream cheese.
