LJ-Picturing Food, 5.14.06: my life as a danish

My squash arrangement. Who needs flowers?



Random stuff first
Curry couscous salad. I always want to put out pamphlets explaining what couscous is because I'm always inevitably asked when I bring couscous to a potluck. =)

Nikki's lemon that she gave me is almost as big as her head! I told her that if lemon's could talk, I bet they'd tell good jokes.


Violet's jicama that she made into slaw (for the aforementioned potluck--"what's a hick-uh-muh?") is almost as big as her head! I don't think their jokes would be as funny as lemons'.

Violet made mini cupcakes, but they were hugely good!

Pizza night! Violet's trying to use up flour, so she made a lot of pizza dough, and we made a lot of pizza.
Violet's photos, the "after" shots, are the bigger, clear ones.

Wendy's pizza: Trying to recreate La Grand Orange's lemon, basil, mozzarella, and sun-dried tomato pizza.

Violet made Mexican pizza with refried beans, cheese, and enchilada sauce, and some lettuce and homemade salsa to go on afterward. I think this was my favorite of the night.

I made pizza with provolone, mozzarella, basil, roasted red peppers, zuchinni, and yellow squash.

My housemate's friend graduated from college, so I made two chocolate cakes for her. One is dark and not-too-sweet with buttercream roses, and the other is lighter with chocolate ganache-covered strawberries.

The two together, partially eaten ... who did that?! Jeesh. I liked the one with the strawberries best.

moment of zen

My version of a happy meal: french bread, provolone, parsley, basil, spices sandwich, date nose, cupcake eyes with dried cranberries. Wooooot.
