The Rice Krispies turkeys thread made me think of this. When I was a kid, my mom used to make apple turkeys at Thanksgiving: a nice big apple for the body, a marshmallow head, toothpick beak, and a tail composed of raisins on toothpicks. They were cute and fun. Did anyone else do something like this?
There's also an old snapshot of my cousin and me holding our apple Santa Clauses, which were REALLY cute.
I'm sure most of you are saying "so what" (or something more ascerbic) but the approach of the holidays makes me think of this old sentimental fun-for-kids stuff.
