The foodie edition

Okay, with Christmas just around the corner a good part of my time is wrapped up with food – reading recipes, planning meals,  grocery shopping, going out with friends for meals, baking, eating, eating and more eating – you get the picture.

So, I got to thinking, what would a Christmas day meal look like based on children’s books titles?

Here’s what I've come up with:

Breakfast


       Dancing Pancakes (Spinelli) 












          OR Unlucky Charms (Rex)










Appetizers:  

       Nuts to You (Perkins)  





AND/OR 




  Toads on Toast (Bailey)









Christmas dinner:


       Octopus Soup (Mayer)










    Tumbleweed Stew (Crummel)








   Creepy Carrots (Reynolds)











       Little Green Peas (Baker)













        Mice and Beans (Ryan)








Dessert:  

        Ugly Pie (Wheeler) 








OR


   Sweet Dream Pie (Wood)










 OR

   Fortune Cookies of Weevil (Reynolds) .


 (I just couldn't make up my mind.)





And,

 I’d serve  Everything on a Waffle (Horvath) – of course.









Not necessarily traditional Christmas fare but it would give guests lots to talk about.

How about you?  Any ideas for your perfect holiday meal?

Happy New Year, Everyone!

I will check some of these titles out at my next library visit, thanks! I have not heard of these but they look like good reads...
