Barbara, who is swiss, invited us over to her place this past saturday to make Grittibänz - a yeasted bread in the shape of a person that is made in Switzerland traditionally on St Nicola's day, Dec 6. (I think, I will have to double check with Martin, who is busy right now preparing his poster for AGU.) Anyways, it was great, because we wouldn't have made them otherwise. Here is the fruit of our labors. A traditional Grittibänz is in lower right. Some untraditional ones are turtle, butterfly, pig's face, hedgehog, snail, and some with a lot of raisins that Sonja decorated all by herself. Thanks, Barbara!
