Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| Butternet Squash, Lentils, and Stuff
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
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.

image, just click on the image.
