  [Today's white plate special.]

May 02, 2020

I had bought a butternut squash at the grocery store earlier in the week and found a few recipes that I used for inspiration. I peeled and roasted the squash, cooked some puy lentils with some assorted spices, steamed some kale, and cut up part fo a vidalia onion and a tomato. I put the squash on top of the rest that was tossed with a balsamic dressing, and topped it with a little bit of cheddar cheese, and some roasted sunflower seeds (from a jar). It came out decently, but seemed like it could have benefited from something else. A bit of salt helped, and I added some dried cranberries on the second serving. I took this picture with my 50mm (effective 75mm) lens. It's a prime lens so the focus is pretty sharp and the slight telephoto aspect is useful for this. Full resolution image is here.

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
