Soy Sauce Ice Cream??? 04/19/2010

Dear Family,

I don't have a lot of time. Or rather, no time. So I'll try to be quick.

Yesterday we went to the Bishop's home to share a lesson with his family. We were teaching about the Sabbath Day and keeping it holy. Using mint chocolate chip ice cream to represent the good things we do on the Sabbath, we began the lesson. Family time, rest, church, spiritual things were mentioned as blessings of the sabbath. We then talked about some things that are good on other days, but not the sabbath - work, sports, too much tv, etc. As we did so, we put toppings on the ice cream that would be good on food other than ice cream - soy sauce, seasoning salt, ketchup, mustard. We then invited them to try it. The whole family recoiled as we waved it around toward each of them. Their 13 year old son, Thomas, said he wanted to try. The second it touched his mouth he ran to the kitchen to spit it out. This will be a lesson he will not soon forget.

Any other ideas for teaching gospel principles with food would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Have a great week, everyone. This week, I encourage you to give one high-five a day to someone that tells you something good they did.
