Christmas Eve Gingerbread and Sustainable Agriculture

I saw the most amazing display of prize winning gingerbread houses today on Good Morning America.  It is even more amazing for me as I have two left hands and I couldn't decorate a gingerbread cupcake, never mind create a gingerbread house.  Trust me, I know.

So seeing the White House chef gingerbread recipe posted made me wonder...should I attempt it?  I am not the biggest fan of gingerbread but this does sound good.

Will I make it?  If I do I promise to blog about it.  But I don't have the correct pans, so don't know if I will bother.

Meanwhile, what about the White House Gingerbread House?  Complete with marzipan garden?  Monument to sustainable agriculture, White House Lawn style?  I am torn between the beauty of this and how much taxpayer money must have been spent on it.  But on the other hand, many natural materials were used in decorating the White House.  And, using local honey was a nice touch with the gingerbread house. 

All in all, a lighthearted moment in what is becoming a Christmas season filled with not always the best news.  My next post may not be so lighthearted.
