OccupyVeggies!

For those of you who, like me, find the entire Occupy Movement to be really well-intentioned, justified, and (indeed) not a moment too soon, but also somewhat dry (The General Assembly is the Filboid Studge of participatory democracy) we have some good news! Occupy Wall Street’s Liberty Plaza General Assembly has taken a lesson from the mainstream media and spiced up its hard news Committee Reports section (is that Spokes? Or Tranches? Who can keepWall Street terminology straight anyway?) with some food-and-spirituality-related entertainment.

  1. Sorry for going off topic but I have a question. I have just received a gingerbread house. As there is no gingerbread house tradition here in the Philippines (here its bibingka and suman — kinds of rice cakes — for Christmas) I’m not to sure what to do with it. Is it meant strictly for decoration? Or can I give it to the kids to eat?

  2. The tradition is, you leave it up drying out till Boxing Day (Dec 26) and then you’re allowed to rip it apart. It’s best served at that point with cocoa, hot milk, tea, etc, because it is indeed crusty but still good to eat then.

  3. Mind you, when I made a gingerbread house, I ended up giving mine to the children’s hospital, where it made an awesome decoration and I don’t think they gave it to the kids.

    Gold leaf and silver are edible. Copper is not. That’s what you need to know.

  4. Thanks! Since it is so humid here I don’t think the house will dry up, and may, in fact, rot if it is out too long. I think I’ll give it to the local children’s home as a snack treat.

  5. Hi! Once the kids understood that the cute little dollhouse was meant to be eaten, it was gleefully demolished in no time, with everyone declaring that their bit of window, wall or chimney was the most delicious part of the house. Thanks!
