Roots and tubers

Today, someone gave me the gift of marzipan.

Marzipan, for the uninitiated, is an almond paste that can be shaped and colored to resemble other things. The person who gave me the marzipan is quite skilled.

There were two collections. One was "Roots and Tubers", made up of the following: Two Carrots, Two Turnips, Two Beets, Two Potatoes.

The other was "Seashore": Two Starfish, Two Whelks, Two Bivalves, Sponges, Two Sanddollars.

We polished off all the Roots and Tubers at lunch. Now I have tiny little almond-flavored Starfish waiting for me.

Life is good, eh?

(P.S. I obviously need some marzipan. And some barbiturates.)
