At top left is a lovely loaf of pretzel bread, the bread of the month at City Bakery. I was lucky enough to be able to buy one today even though I hadn't reserved a loaf. The other three drawings on this page are from the bakery case at Greenlife/Whole Foods. Number 684 is a from-memory drawing of a thing called a dog bone, which seems to be a Rice Krispy treat with chocolate coating in the middle. The tiny berry tarts were gorgeous, with glistening blackberries and blueberries.
I made pesto out of our basil crop this evening, and when I went to the garden to get the basil I grabbed the last of the carrots. I drew them while waiting for the spaghetti water to boil. I can't seem to grow carrots that look like carrots. These taste fine, but they look more like ginseng roots or parsnips. I even built a little raised bed so they could have deep straight roots.
