Christmas and Cranberries


Begin forwarded message:

Cranberries have become one of my favorite things at Christmas time.  This year I have used them to decorate with, and to garnish with.  Hopefully next week I will be able to post some decorating pictures.  

The picture below shows some garnishing I did with cranberries.  I placed them around a berry pie; one that I slaved all day over!  Not!  I actually bought it, but when I put it up on a pedestal 
And placed my wonderful, red cranberries around it and then sprinkled powdered sugar on them for a "snow" effect, it lost some of it's store bought look!  

When we have fellowships at church my food is not the food that gets the blue ribbon prize for taste.  I have brought quite a few almost full dishes back home with me, if you know what I mean!  Well, I'll let you in on a little secret I learned.  The presentation of the food is a major part of the meal.  So, I've learned to "garnish" the food to be presentable even if it isn't edible!

This Razzel Dazzle Berry pie by Marie Calendar, got dazzled a little moe and taken to a Christmas party tonight.  Guess what! Not only did it get eaten almost gone, but it was also a topic of conversation around the dessert table!  

I'm just cranzy bout cranberries!
