Halfway Out the Door Drawing

We're leaving in the early afternoon tomorrow for two weeks in Spain-- Barcelona, then Girona just up the Costa Brava from Barcelona, then back to Barcelona.  Today was the expected flurry of packing, finding a house key, wrestling Jesse to Top Dog for a two week spring break vacation, etc etc.  Finished up with a sweet meeting of my journal group from 6 - 8 (only I came home early), a run-thru Whole Foods for a take-out dinner, and now home.  I came so close to not drawing anything and not posting today BUT while the little quiche was in the toaster oven I sketched the delicious salad, and then when the quiche came out of the oven, I had to draw it, too.  Both were so good and very simple foods.  They should be easy to duplicate.  I especially liked the crust on the quiche, which had no flour in it but was made of sprouted almonds ground up, golden flax (seeds), rosemary, coconut oil, and Celtic sea salt.  It had been pressed into a little pie pan and filled with the spinach, sun-dried tomato, and white miso and pureed squash filling with some nutmeg sprinkled on top.

I'll be drawing a lot in Spain but probably not posting due to lack of scanner and poor quality of phone photos of drawings.  So look for gigantic catch-up posts after May 5!
