Happy birthday to one of my all-time favorite book illustrators, Edward Gorey! Mr. Gorey long ago passed from this world to the next, but his beautiful and strange drawings will live on as long as there is imagination, humor, and weirdness in the world.

This year, the Sydney International Food Festival featured national flags using foods each country is commonly associated with. Traveling is delicious when taste buds are tourists!

Italy: basil, pasta, and tomatoes

India: curry chicken, rice, cheera thoran, and papadum wafer

 

Lebanon: tomatoes, pita bread, and parsley

Greece: olives and feta cheese

Great Britain: scone, cream, and jam

 

And the USA? Hot dogs, ketchup, and mustard, of course!
