Tonight’s project was a little ode to garlic. My roommate is always making fun of me for having so much garlic in the house (right now I have 3.5 bulbs), but I just can’t help it! I love it. I use it on everything! Veggies, meat, pasta, pizza. It’s delicious!
Perhaps by the time my roomie gets home from her vacation, I will have used up all 3.5 bulbs. Although by then, I guess I will have already bought more.
Last night, Jim and I made the moroccan-spiced lamb pastitsio from Jim’s favorite cooking blog, All Season’s Cuisine. We stayed pretty true to the recipe (except that we cut down the amount of cinnamon), and it turned out absolutely amazing. I highly recommend it for the next time you’re looking for a rich and savory dish.
I based this little birdie on a drawing in a vintage book I got at a rummage sale today. Jim says it’s definitely a woodpecker, but he can’t figure out what kind it is and it isn’t labeled in the book I got. Strange.
Anyways, woodpeckers have a special place in my heart right now because there is one that lives in my neighborhood and spends lots of time in the tree right outside my front door. Pretty much every morning when I wake up, I can hear it pecking away. It’s a nice sound.
Tonight, I worked on trying to recreate a particular distorted image of a man’s face. Since I didn’t quite capture it tonight, I’ll be trying again over the next day or two. When I finally get it, I’ll post the image along with it.
Tonight I made a doodle of an ear of corn, which is kind of weird because I’m always talking about how I don’t like corn. I mean, it’s barely even a vegetable, and doesn’t really have any nutritional value. Also, it’s all sweet and weird. I’m just not a fan. To be fair, though, I do like corn bread. That stuff is amazing.
Tonight I did a pen drawing of a woman in the same style as the man I drew the other day. I am kinda digging the style because I’m really enjoying creating these sorts of creepy characters. Maybe I’ll do a few more in the upcoming weeks.
