besides cramming an entire year’s worth of german into an eleven week period, swimming at my new favorite pool because it’s free and has a designated lap lane to keep out the kiddos, and diving into good books… here is what i've been doing and thinking about.
taiwanese sweet bread (with lots of egg and butter). delicious by itself
add some fine herb boursin cheese. insanely delicious.
bacon. explosively delicious.
best combo ever, thanks to my roommate M for making up this one.
I have lots of flour. lots more than normal people. more specifically, more like 24lbs more than normal people. so I’ve begun making lots of bread! here is a honfleur country bread, aka pain de campagne – honfleur, that is resting and rising.
spinach quiche. same thing as the quiche lorraine, except spinach replaced the bacon.
a close-up. a comment I got at my art crit last week: these fruit pieces work either tiny (rings, jewelry) or large. medium does not suit them well. they are stronger as sculpture rather than flat on the wall. lots to think about and play around.
and that is my summer so far!
