Silly Silliness of Epic Proportions

I am working on things I can't show, don't want to show, or I'm waiting to show until I finished ten hours. (I'm close to having two pictures for you. Really!) So I was thinking I've shown you food you can stitch, but do we ever have occasion to stitch our food?

I came up with trussing a turkey. (Thought Alton Brown says you shouldn't.) We string popcorn and cranberries which involves a needle but that isn't quite stitching.

So, do you stitch your food?

I suppose you can't actually say I stitch bracciole but it does involve a needle and butcher's cotton string ... it's really more like a braid/wrap kind of deal.

And I am still wondering what CSA vegetables are ...can't be Confederate States of America ... but that's the only CSA I know.

Hmmm this is a stumper. Sometimes I think I should stitch my lips together to stop me eating food...

Sometimes, I "stitch" the ends of a stuffed chicken breast with a toothpick to hold the filling inside. Does that count?

I've not stitched my food, although I occasionally tie it or skewer it together. That's not quite the same thing.

CSA - Community Sustainable Agriculture, yes?

I am not a stitcher food either, but I have skewered a cake together. Love the Just Nan house too, but very expensive.

I have a spool of kitchen twine and use it to tie various meats. But I never use a needle.

I can decorate a cake to look like I stitched it, does that count? I may have to make one and take it to my stitching group and take a photo next month.

I tried to tie up a roll once - you know, that thinly-pounded meat stuffed with crap, rolled up and roasted? It was horrible. The strings burned. I'll stick to stitching stuff for the walls. ;)

Nope, no food stitching here.
