I discovered that the recent glass art table I bought on a whim w/ Jacques..(he found it..he brought me to it..it's his fault..)..I discovered ..it makes an amazing light table..better than my small light box and better than my computer..
I rarely use a box..rarely..I prefer looking at a photo and drawing it out..but I tried w/ that photo I took..
I placed it on the table..the watercolor card on top and a light under..traced the outlines and the sign..then set myself up and painted..
I liked doing it..cheating in a way..but it works:)
The seedlings are popping up..those are calendulas..the tomatoes are getting really big..this was Aril 5th!
Tried these braids..so cute and fun..but I may have erred..found them here.. a blog I like..and she had linked to here.. At BHG they divided the recipe..she didn't..I got confused and divided..froze the other half..and made 4 braids..not sure if they shoud have been smaller?
Oh well..cute and good.
I did use semolina..I get it atan Italian grcer.I use it in pizza doughs sometimes.
I signed up for a weekly delivery of a farm basket..not a regular farm..a conglomeration of farms.. rooftops.. dairy..etc..
once a week they will deliver to a local spot.
I think I am smitten..
No..I don't think...
I am smitten..♥♥
the greens..were so crunchy and fresh..the eggs so pastel and free range..the microgreens beautiful.
Friday night w/ the micro greens atop..I made baked Bang Bang shrimp.. ***** sautéed chopped baby bok choy w/ sesame oil..and garlic chips.. and sweet rice w/ red peppers and spring green onions..love that sauce:)
Baked..so the only really bad thing is the Bang Bang sauce..
C'est la vie:)
I don't even turn the shrimp over anymore..I have made this a few times..
I now brown my Panko first..makes a prettier coating..
I add this to the sauce..
Linda told me about it..she sent me some years ago..I have never looked back:)
It adds zing and color..w/ the sesame seeds..
It was a thrill for me to add all the farm basket ingredients..
I'll pause till after Easter..and then share some of the fun stuff:)
I am sorry the first pic..the watercolor one..is greyish..not sure why..
I am so happy to have been able to grow things under lights here..
I was able to go to one or two..MTL flower markets this week..and I cannot say I am enamoured..at all..:(
that's one thing in Paris..that took my breath away..HUGE bunches,
I am not ready to say that of MTL.. in April..in a flower market stall.
Actually très disappointed.
Maybe more later..
PS..I added my watercolor..a second time..brighter.. thanks to a really nice person who actually took the time to take mine..brighten it and send it back to me..
you know..these little acts of impromptu kindnesses..are just tops in my books.
Thank you Bryonna:)
