Other stuff I made

Speaking of church, and cooking, I made a simple pasta salad for the annual Advent wreath-making event last night. The pasta and dressing part of the salad could hardly have been simpler; I used a Betty Crocker product called Suddenly Salad. The back of the value-sized box suggested gussying it up with a bag of winter vegetable mix, some halved pepperoni slices, and a couple cans of black olives, which I did do, except for the olives, because I hate olives, and I used whole pepperoni minis instead of halved regular-sized pepperoni slices, because past experience demonstrated that the halved pepperonis tend to clump together when you stir them into the salad. It's tasty! Give it a try some time.

I also made, as one might expect one would at an Advent wreath-making event, an Advent wreath. More precisely, I helped my nephew make one. I think it turned out great!

My major contribution to the project was securing the bow at the center of the wreath. (Which is not a wreath, really, but rather numerous small pine branches stuck into one of a block of floral foam.) I used a couple of twist-ties to attach the bow to a small stick of wood, which I them pushed down into the foam. I suppose inviting him and my sister to come to the event is also a contribution of sorts.
