Sunny skies in Portland
Keturah's sugar cookies in the oven
Engaging guest for dinner
Exciting box from the mailman...
Within that box and its many layers of cardboard, masking tape, duct tape and padding were the White's Custom Roasting Sticks we'd ordered, our names imprinted in the coffee-colored birch!
(and maybe a few gifts for some unsuspecting roasting-loving friends).
You see last week in Kansas, during our Thanksgiving visit, we quite wisely decided to invest in the
beauties which are handcrafted by my very own Uncle Virg White (pictured below). He is surely a food artist if I've ever seen one.
|The exciting delivery from the mailman|
And maybe I shouldn't be making unsolicited plugs for my families' handicrafts, but what with the holiday gifting season, and what with the birch's photographic tendency, and what with my adoration of all things family and food-related.... it just makes sense.

|Each roasting stick gets a pin in the map... One more for Portland (or Santa Fe)|
Our family has the tradition of big bonfires surrounded by stick-wielding hungry folks, asking for the flames to do their job on the meal. Virg began making his roasting sticks simply for these occasions, but word got out about their quality and voila... White's Custom Roasting Sticks!
|Like I said... sunny, glistening skies in Portland.|
You can order yours here - custom made of course. Enjoy!
