Since cooler weather has arrived in Appalachia-the girls have been enjoying one of their favorite pastimes-gomming in the mud.
All you need is-water, dirt, willing hands, and an imagination. Just look at some of their creations-
-a flower mud pate with leaf garnish,
mud salad served with stacked mud balls and a side of mashed mud,
and lastly-my personal favorite- mud pudding served in a mushroom cap.
Usually when I make pudding-I love to lick the bowl. But I think I'll pass on this one.
Making mud pies and using flora for fake salads was something I enjoyed as a kid. Sometimes the girls will make up a whole meal and ask me and The Deer Hunter to come as their special guests. It always amazes me-they put so much effort into the creations-just for us to throw them over our shoulders as we pretend to eat them.
Hope you enjoyed the gomming-you can at least be glad it didn't take place at your house right?
