Stars and Stripes and Bison bison Forever
It's holiday time again ... Time for us to blow the powdered sugar from our treasured family sugar cookie recipe and whip up a batch to usher in Independence Day! Sadly, my cookie cutter collection is wanting. We easily made a bunch of flag-shaped rectangles, but had to use our Star of David for fireworks. We did manage a red elephant (upper left corner of photo), but had to have our Dakotan friend Bison bison stand in for the blue donkey (lower left corner of photo).
Which reminds me, our Oregonian friends Pam and Mac play this endearing game - well, it's sort of a long-term game - where they try to discover as many animals with the same genus and species name. For example, Bison bison or Alces alces or Troglodytes troglodytes. Fun! I think I'll build on that game and start a completely trivial collection of cookie cutters in the shape of animals that have the same genus and species name.
And then, I'll use them to make more delicious cut-outs.
