That made us wonder: What would it look like to fall in love at first bite? Could a simple trip to pick up a pineapple change your life? That’s how Hannah and Kevin’s story inspired this video.

In December’s Flyer we asked, “What’s the most unusual holiday dinner you’ve ever eaten?”
Congrats to Ania W. from Cleveland, whose story gives new meaning to that ol’ “Rub a dub dub, thanks for the grub” saying:
The most unusual dinner I ever had was when I lived in Eastern Europe as a child.
The country I lived in was poor, and the food was hard to get. We used to stand in lines for hours to get basic foods. So to get the traditional carp for Christmas Eve you had to jump some hoops, use your friendships and connections.
This meant that often the fish would have to be purchased days ahead. That is fine, the only problem was that the fish was sold alive!
So my family purchase two carps, a week before Christmas and …. put them in a bathtub to keep them fresh! I know what you are thinking. Yes, we did get them out and scrub the tub before bathing!!! But our only bathroom became home for our Christmas Eve dinner for the whole 7 days. Being kids, we played with the fish, fed it and grew quite attached to it. It came as a shock when it was time to get the supper started and my dad came out of the bathroom with the fish on a plate.
That was the most bizarre and unusual dinner I ever had since. The oddest thing was that as much as we were traumatized (being just children) my sister and I still enjoyed the fish as it was a rare treat.
A lot of y’all are saving up the points for a big purchase down the line. Maybe a whole holiday dinner, who knows? Others, and who can blame them, felt those points burning a whole in their digital pockets, cashing them in for store credit on the spot.
So we asked on Facebook: And y’all came correct with the answers:
Ahhh, the proverbial “free lunch.” Nice job!
The beauty of Tomato Bank, you can spend your points on foods that meet any diet.
Going for that crave-able snack that’s also healthy… commendable!
Holding out on the kids, aye? We won’t tell, if you don’t.
Frozen avocados?? It works! Freeze a puree in an air-tight container.
Ha! A tomato red hybrid, maybe? If you get a car with Tomato Bank points, we call shotgun!
We asked you on Facebook and Twitter what kind of realistic resolutions you’re making in 2013. The responses were inspiring…
“Volunteering once a month at least for the less fortunate…”
“…spend more time with those who make me happy…”
“Accept the power and necessity of rest.”
“Commit a random act of kindness every week…”
A common theme was to surround yourselves with happy, positive people – to look on the brighter side of things, not take people for granted, and to be a kinder person. You also wanted to eat healthier and exercise more – a very common resolution. We’d like to suggest:
Try to eat at least one completely organic meal each week.
Go meat-free at least one day a week. Explore your veggies!
Start slow – add one hour per week to your exercise routine.
There is no getting without giving. There is no “me” without “we.” There is no Earth Fare without you. Thank you and have a Merry Christmas!
