The Almond Brothers

What? You think that I have the title wrong?

I beg to differ. These guys are definitely made of almonds.

Well a couple of them are made of Brazil nuts, but who is splitting hairs?

These are Mira's creations. Bill makes a breakfast cereal that contains whole nuts and Mira, looking at them, decided that they would make good carving material. Imagine my surprise when I open the freezer door and found a few little carved men. And there is Mira, in the back yard carving away.

And of course they needed somewhere to stand and so the chocolate stage was created.
Alas, they suffered a grievous accident and were eaten by giants. When speaking to the giants later, they declared the Almond Brothers delicious.

Wow! Eatable art. I think that she is very creative with everything she puts her hands on including things she puts in her mouth. I can imagine what she would carve out of a whole coconut.

Who knows, she might be the next creator of little people in the frozen food aisle at the Superstore.

I love this. :) I wonder what Mira would do with some soapstone.
