Fiddle Broke

20 points to the person who can identify where today's post title came from. :-)

Today Tummy treasure is taking a bit of a break so I can nurse my sick little girl to health. She was awake in the middle of the night, and I suspect the nasty Norovirus that is going around, so I need to comfort her, and make sure I'm cleaning the house thoroughly to try and prevent the rest of us from getting it. There is a chance she just had a nervous reaction to all the excitement yesterday, as she had her Christmas play at church. But she's still looking a little green this morning, so I must go tend to her.

In lieu of a food post today, I can use today as a reminder of how fortunate we are to have food in our tummies to cause such a disturbing reaction. There are children all over the world today whose tummies hurt because they are empty. Tummies who don't remember the last time they held a slice of bread. In the spirit of the holiday season, please consider a donation to help feed the hungry around the world. Consider A Menu For Hope, a fundraiser supported by food-bloggers all around the globe. This year's campaign is raising money for The United Nations World Food Programme, a wonderful cause. Not only do you get the sense of satisfaction from donating to a worthy cause, you also get a chance to win awesome prizes for each $10 donated. For more information about donating, and checking out the list of prizes, head on over to our organizer, Chez Pim for all the details. So far, we have raised over $24,000! Let's keep it up, the campaign runs through December 22, so check it out while you have the chance!

Oh I'm so excited! That is exactly right. That is one of my all time faves as well. Every time I feel ill, I think of the dog and "fiddle broke." I love that book.
