Thoughts on Food

I love food. I love cooking food, smelling food, eating food. You may already be able to tell considering most of these posts show some sort of food. Do any of us not love food? Cooking has become my creative outlet in the last few years and I like to think I'm getting better. Still working on keeping those veggies crisp in the curries, but I love trying new recipes that are healthy and a little different. After my foray into raw foods at the Spa, I thought I'd try a few things at home to keep that health stint going. I also have nothing but my computer and a few papers to distract me, so I've been playing around.

Here's one thing I created:
tropical gazpacho with a watermelon base, red pepper, pineapple, green onion, cucumber, avocado, garlic, lime and cilantro! Delicious---too bad it looks like a bowl of dog poo when photographed!

And here's one thing I did not create:
and will never. Sometimes the Japanese have the ability to completely turn you off of food.

Wow! Your cooking looks and sounds absolutely delish! The Japanese have a hilarious way of describing food. I love it! "In the shape of a lovely chick", huh? I didn't know that was a "comfortable" shape to cook sweet potatoes in! :)
