You know how I roll. ;-)
|If you read the book, you know the Tributes are given gifts from their sponsors via parachute packages. Each one says: "May the odds be ever in your favor!"|
|The cookies are supposed to represent the cookies Peeta's dad gave Katniss when he said goodbye to her.|
|Inside the parachute packages are mini loaves a bread, like what District 9 sent Katniss after what she did for Rue.|
|They are actually mini loaves of banana cake and crumbled walnuts across the top.|
The extra touches I added like the mini parachute packages and the cheese platters are just things I like to do. When you like doing something, it's no longer a chore. Everyone seemed to enjoy what I put together, and I had a really nice time thinking it all up. It kinda makes me wish it were my turn again!
Luckily, the other ladies told me they would be contracting their "turn" for host snacks out to me. Let's see if I can make a little money off this. To be honest, though, a lot of the books these other women picked were pretty boring. I'll see what food ideas I can pull out of them as I read.
As for me: SUCCESS
