We did some fun food things today. If you've been on the internet at all this year you've seen variations on the first picture. I couldn't resist. I had to try it. It turned out to be pretty easy. I didn't work very hard to make it spectacular since it was just for us. However, it went together fast enough that I would consider doing one or two for a party.
Just FYI, it takes two whole bunches of broccoli to cover the cone. Om said, "too much broccoli!"
Finally, you might wonder what this picture has to do with food. I'm adding this to today's post, not to brag, but because one of the things I most enjoy doing at the end of each year is shopping the World Vision Gift Catalog. This year, I chose to give a goat and four ducks to some family, for high-protein eggs and milk. I just like the idea that I have some control over where my money is going. During the year I can think about and pray for "my" goat, and perhaps some child who is milking it. Maybe it will have babies to sell, or to begin a small herd. These gifts are a lot more personal than just throwing dollars into the great unknown.
There are lots of kinds of gifts one can give, for as little as $10, up to thousands of dollars. There are short videos at the site to show how the various kinds of gifts are used. If this appeals to you at all, I highly endorse World Vision. They also run a small business loan program, similar to Kiva.
