Yesterday I treated myself to a trip to the used book store. I was checking out the cookbook section when something caught my eye, Wookiee Cookies: A Star Wars Cookbook. There’s a Star Wars cookbook? Who knew?
The cookbook is aimed at children. However there’s obviously a lot here for science fiction fans like myself. Recipes include things like Crazy Cantina Chili, Princess Leia Danish Dos, The Force Fruit Fun and of course Wookiee Cookies.
Here’s the thing, the Crazy Cantina Chili is very close to my own recipe but it sounds ten times better. It’s not regular old chili. It’s Crazy Cantina Chili. What an excellent example of adding imagination to something as humdrum as making dinner and turning it into an event!
The cookbook reminded me that our days are only as ordinary as we allow them to be.
