I told you yesterday I took part in GISH, which I misnamed: GISH stands for the GREATEST Internet Scavenger Hunt.
The hunt is over, and I’m free to share my piddly three entries.
I forgot to write down the item number for this one. It only said, “The sword in the scone. That is not a typo.”
So I made this:
The basic recipe is Simple Scones from Allrecipes.com, although I made a couple of changes: In addition to raisins, I also added chopped pecans, cinnamon, and ground cardamom, and sprinkled the top with Penzeys Vanilla Sugar. The original recipe calls for the dough to be patted into a circle and cut into wedges, but I didn’t think that would look stony enough, so I made lumps.
The “sword” is my favorite kitchen knife with an aluminum cross-bar taped on.
The final item I submitted, #53, was supposed to be a poem on the magic of nature.
Will I join another GISH? I don’t know. It was fun, but I don’t know that I contributed that much to my team. It did me good, though, and we GISHers raised mad money for charities this weekend, so that was totally worth it.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about having fun for a good cause.
