Yep, I know, FOOD!

I really enjoy giving food as gifts, especially when I get to make it myself. Over the years I have made gingerbread trees, rum balls, coconut ice, white christmas, cookies, fudge etc etc.

P is for Pumpkin. I LOVE pumpkin. I love it’s versatility, but I also love it’s simplicity. I love it roasted, steamed, or mashed. I like it in salads, or on pizzas. I love the stuff. Here are some examples of ways to cook pumpkin…I bet there are a few you haven’t tried? (like I haven’t!)

These little Rainbow Cookies are so gorgeous, and I plan to make the for my Daughter’s Rainbow High Tea birthday party next month. Too cute!!

The last thing for today, is vegetable and herb gardens. I LOVE vegetable gardens! I cannot wait for the day that we have our own place, and I can get a really big veggie patch happening. Not only is it nice to eat something you have grown yourself, but I found that the few times we have successfully grown vegetables in pots, the kids have been much more inclined to actually eat their vegetables. It is something about the novelty of growing, looking after, picking, then eating their own foods that gets them interested! Here are some great little veggie gardens.
