Another food post. This is the fruit bowl

that I used as part of my Tribute to Leonard Nimoy, item #16 in last week’s GishWhes scavenger hunt

This was one item that I took a lot of time on and probably spent the most money on. I paid to have the pictures printed, the poster board, and the fruit. I contacted my friend in Israel for the Hebrew spelling of Leonard’s name.

He was a true hero of mine. As a child, ethnicity was often hidden on screen. While Mr. Spock was a Vulcan on the show, in his real life he was Jewish as is William Shatner. He was one of me. That was huge to this child who worshipped Star Trek. I dreamed Star Trek, I Mary-Sued Star Trek, I wrote fan fic before I knew what that was, I went to conventions. I even traveled to NYC and Pennsylvania to hear Leonard speak.

This item probably meant the most to me, and I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

Dinomite’s Fluffy Bites – this recipe was created by my teammate for our GishWhes team, Brave Little Ants last week. The flag in the cupcake is our symbol, designed by another teammate.

The ingredients include kale which is the (un)official food stuff of GishWhes.
