The Witches Are Coming!
Anyway, I have to get everything ready.
And with the other hand work on minis...
I couldn't resist cutting the ball for an onion dome on the round rum box.
did you ever wonder how to cut a level piece off of a Styrofoam ball?
It is really very easy. Just find a bowl that the ball will fit in to about the level you want to cut and mark it all around with a pen..
Then go find your best serrated bread knife and saw away... Carefully. You don't want to mess up the knife and you definitely don't want to crack the ball.
I think that the ball is going to have to have a collar at the bottom to sit it up from the box. Then I have to carve or build the onion top for it.
I am still leaning towards getting rid of the Buddha. Even more so, after seeing it with the ball on top.
I have two friends that can't eat certain things right now, but carrots isn't one of them. Thus the rainbow. I mixed them with mushrooms and sprinkled them with garlic, salt and pepper and some fresh rosemary from the back yard.
The timer just went off. I have to go stir them up. I got the idea from Foodgawker.com. They have some pretty good recipes.
See you tomorrow.
