Lunch at the Twisted Olive

My Lunch Sketched on Arches Cover Cream Paper in My Sketchbook
Food Blogging Again
I had a veggie burger on flat bread, orzo, and hummus. The veggie burger was made with chickpeas (left whole - how did they stay together!!!???) lentils, zucchini, and carrots  -  served on Naan flat bread with tomatoes and lettuce.  I don't know why I felt compelled to give you all the details, but, there they are.

Beautiful beautiful beautiful weather here for the past few days.   It's been a busy week, and oops, I didn't go to life drawing tonight.  Maybe I need a little break from life drawing. 

Okay  -  not to overdo the food blogging, but I think I will go roast some Brussels sprouts now. 

Have you sketched some food today?

Raining here today...good for the well!...so no painting in the garden. However, I have some walls to paint out in the big shed, so you've made me think I could take the sketch kit with me and play a little when I take a break. Good idea! Thanks.

Love your food sketches. Roasted Brussels sprouts? Sounds like a must-try for cooler weather.

Thanks suspinz - the brussels sprouts are wonderful roasted! I briefly tell how to do them in my post on 12/10/09.

Have fun painting the walls. Good idea to take your sketch kit - you're gonna need a break : )
