Apparently lots of us live in apartments that lack decent air conditioning, because you guys voted for “Summer dishes that won’t heat up your kitchen” as the focus of my July cooking project. While I don’t have a recipe for you today (too busy finishing up that farmer’s market haul – and all of that requires some kind of sautée/roasting action), I do have some pictures from Artomatic last Saturday. Don’t worry – next week I’ll begin the project properly – and I promise that I won’t just do endless salad variations (well . . . maybe one).
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Meet the Peeps Artists party last Saturday – and thanks to Artomatic for throwing the shindig. It was great to meet such wonderful, creative, talented and resourceful people – I learned new techniques for making peeps’ clothes, choosing a diorama topic, and making fake blood (hint: it involves Elmer’s glue and ink from a red pen). I was also amazed at the level of detail in the dioramas – the photos really don’t do them justice a lot of the time. Pics from the evening, and some of my favorite dioramas, below.
