It’s the Great Christmas Food Blog Gift Exchange!

After much planning, talking and cajoling, the Great Christmas Food Blog Gift Exchange happened. Hurrah! Hurrah!

This is where blogs, flogs, food blogs and blogs that have entries with vague references to food (e.g. “Good girls with big noses eat steak”) are invited to be the not-so-secret Satan Santa for another blogger.

We met for tea at a cloistered alcove at the cafe of the curiously-named Tea Bone Zen Mind. Review to come later but here are the highlights of the gift exchange.


We had fun and I took really sucky pictures. Brenda who was supposed to be there, cancelled on us fifteen minutes before teatime. She had to go to church. Apparently Jesus is coming.

Unfortunately, Hinata slaved over the chopping board to make fresh salsa, guacamole and Mexican wedding cakes which could not keep. So with Brenda’s blessings, we saved the food from spoilage.

Here’s a collage of the food we saved from spoilage with courtesy from Brenda. Hinata wrote notes, added the recipes (nice penmanship! Very JC student) and stored everything in very nice jars.

One of the photos is so scary. Did that person watch a funny video tape?
