Foodstuffs Are Craftstuffs, Too

A few days ago, I made some delightful food. From recipes, even! First off was a parmesan and root vegetable lasagna. I made it basically as written, but without the bay leaf and nutmeg in the cream sauce (it was criminally delicious as it was, though). It’s been serving me exceptionally well as lunch over the past few days, and I’ll be sad to see it go.

While waiting for the lasagna to bake, I prepared some cottage cheese muffins. These are serving as my breakfast this week, and I’ll definitely be making more. I substituted the tomatoes with chopped walnuts and sauteed garlic, and acquired the basil from my windowbox. The almond meal gives a mildly-surprising spongy texture, and I’m curious to see how it will taste in other combinations.

Since any and all of my attempts at food photography are pretty unfortunate-looking, I will instead present some glassware, recently purchased in a home goods buying spree on eBay. Here’s to you Mr. Chomsky, Mr. Dinosaur.
