Texas Got a Boot out of Funny Food
As authors of “Funny Food”, Bill and I were invited to the 2012 Texas Book Festival in Austin. More than 250 authors shared their work. It was a literary feast. We presented in the cooking tent where cookbook authors prepared recipes for adoring fans.
Bill demonstrated how he makes the kinds of funny, healthy breakfasts that are in our book.
Each Funny Food that Bill made was greeted with laughter and applause.
Adults and kids were glued to the monitors that focused on Bill’s dishes as they were coming to life.
Bill made each plate in about 3 minutes with simple ingredients donated by the Central Market of Austin to show how easy it can be to make a fun, healthy breakfast at home.
While Bill was creating, I described the Funny Food workshops we do that make it fun to learn about nutrition, and help combat childhood obesity. To learn more about our workshops, visit our website.
Austin is a health-conscious city so we signed a lot of books.
While we were in Austin, Sandy hit the East coast where we live. Our hearts go out to all those who are suffering from the ravages of the storm.
