I was lucky enough to be invited to a holiday reception at the White House last week to see the decorations up close and the President and First Lady from a distance.
Never mind the Christmas trees in every room. The gingerbread house!*
It comes with its very own garden, hoop houses, beehive, and kale:
The candy vegetables were not to be eaten.
But the cookies most definitely were.
Here’s to a happy, healthy, and well nourished holiday season!

Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
