And then...

...there was Howard.  This year's Yule "boar's head."  I think that Howard came out better than Norman did (last year's "boar's head.")  He's made with pie crust for skin, parsnips for tusks, radishes for eyes, and my French-Canadian Grandfather's torte de noel recipe for filling.  He was yummy.

Riding to the event with him on my lap was a little nerve wracking.

OMG that is AWESOME. You totally amaze me. I love the fact that you named it, too.

Isn't he cool? I figured that if I made food with a face that he HAD to have a name.

The whole time I was making him I could just hear my Grandmother's disapproval of "playing with food." AND I could hear my Grandfather giggling.

Freaky! I couldn't figure out what the hell that was, other than food, until you said it was a deliberate shape rather than a very strange roast or something. You know how it is when you're shown a picture of something you'd never have imagined...it takes a while to see it for what it is.

Wow that must have been a lot of work.

It's a very odd use of a meat pie recipe until you know what you're looking at. He actually wasn't too much work, because I learned from all the mistakes I made last year!

It's lovely! Can you give us directions on making one?

Ummm... I can try! Give me a bit to formulate a coherent process and I'll post it.

Maybe next year I should take pictures of the assembly steps...
