What's For Dinner?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Carrots and Celery, served in a big pot of melted butter? With a side of shredded chicken? Nope. That's just the start of 8 pot pies. I kept two out for tonight's dinner

Here they are all piled up. For the fun of it I included an onion sketch I did once upon a long time ago. Yes, that's an onion, and yes, there is a reason I don't draw for a living. One of these days, I am going to get that onion and it's sister drawing of a teeny pumpkin, framed and hung in my kitchen. It doesn't actually matter much to me that it looks more like a striped squished ball than a vegetable. I just like to look at it, knowing I stretched myself to do something that was not a God-given, born in my soul talent. I challenge you to try a new skill. It is heartening to a. learn you can do something you never thought you could do and b. Learn why people who are actually good at what you just learned to do get a lot of money for their efforts. Appreciation can be best gained by self effort. True. And worth the price of a community class.

Oh, that looks yummy! Mmmm!

What a great little drawing, too. I've always wanted to learn to draw and so admire those that can!
