What would Christmas be without the Muppets?

This week I wanted to do something a little different, we just had our first real big dump of snow in Kimberley B.C. and so naturally Christmas nostalgia has begun to creep up on me; just as the marketing prophets prophesized.  I thank my parents every year for instilling a cheezy Christmas nostalgia in me apposed to an expensive and exhaustingly elaborate one. For me I get nostalgic about hunting down our charly brown Christmas tree in the woods, hanging our plethora of ornaments on the tree, every thing from batman to our handmade Rusty’s (our dog) first Christmas, watching white Christmas and miracle on 31st street with my dad, or baking with my mom.  But nothing burns brighter in my mind’s eye than the Muppets. I grew up with the muppets and nothing screams Christmas to me more than the odd, multi species, misfit family.  The muppet family is in many ways a microcosm of Canadian Society, the odd multicultural and sometimes dysfunctional rag-tag group of travelers trying to make their home in a strange land.  Jim Henson, may he rest in peace, did a great job of creating a very diverse group of characters that function in a community with very little malice or discontent.  I don’t care who you are you can probably identify with one of the many muppet characters, now just imagine if we could co-exist with all our fellow muppets. I personally identify with Chef Bork and so for my next recipe I would like to pay homage to one of my favorite chef bork recipes the lighter than air souffle.  Stay tuned
