Project 22 – 5 – 11 November 2007

This photo update’s unofficial theme should either be food or macro. Or possibly both.

Dark Chocolate M&Ms

My chocolate cravings in recent weeks have been sated with dark chocolate M&Ms, but I am down to the last of my supply, shown here. Thankfully, I bought some Mounds bars at the store yesterday.

Nameless Casserole

On the 6th, I decided to be brave when I got home from work, so I tried to throw together a casserole using my leftovers and bits of things I had here and there in the kitchen. This was the result. It incorporated chicken, wild rice, cream of mushroom soup, cornbread stuffing, an apple, and other such yummy things. I was pretty pleased with the result, though I did feel that it would benefit from a blast from a spice weasel.

My Shiny Guitar

This is one of my toys that I wish I had more time to play with. I’ve decided that it just might be necessary to take it to North Carolina with me this Christmas when I have no research to distract me from the fun.


Part of my corner of the kitchen, including my much-loved spice carousel (just like my mom’s). It should be clear that many of these photos are getting taken at the end of the day, when I have food on my mind…

Indian Beads

This is actually the edging along my bedside lamp. On Friday (when this photo was taken), I had a craving for Indian food, which is one food ethnicity with which I don’t have much experience. Joe, on the other hand, loves Indian food. So I didn’t have to try very hard to convince him to go out for some. What does this have to do with my lamp? Well, it’s supposed to be Indian; in fact, the base is an elephant, which explains why my mother bought it for me. (Also in the background of this shot: my contact lens cleaner, the shadow of a photo of Deatheaters, and part of my autographed Frames poster.)

Wet Autumn Day

The cobblestones of Court Street where I usually wait for the bus in the mornings.

Butterscotch Cookies

We’ve reached the time of year where I start craving all the treats that we always had around the holidays when I was a kid. Most of yesterday was spent suffering in PowerPoint, and, at the end of the day, I needed a pick-me-up. So I made up some rolls of my family’s butterscotch cookie dough, headed up to Joe’s place, and baked cookies. This photo actually shows a batch getting ready to go into the oven. If you’re interested in the recipe, I’ve posted it at Starving Students.

  • Ooh, great photos! You’re making me crave M&Ms, and that casserole looks inventive, I don’t think I could ever hobble one together like that – I’m not that creative when it comes to food. And that spice carousel reminds me of home, where my mother has one exactly like it, too.

    Your guitar is very pretty, although I’m an idiot and can’t tell if it’s one of those strangely shaped electric ones or not. 😛

    Any photos of the cookies post-baking? 😀

  • Thank you! Looking at the food pictures makes me hungry, too. It’s probably unhealthy for me.

    My guitar is an electric one. I actually have an acoustic one, too, but it’s not great, and it was intended for a kid (which is when I got it). The electric guitar is newer and supposed to encourage me to (re)learn how to play and get some of my stress out. I’ve just (ahem) been too busy to play…

    For you, Klose, there are.
