The Gods are Pleased
Went to the grocery store today and found the perfect objet du still life. And I wasn't even looking for something to paint - wasn't even thinking about painting.
But there, in the produce section, were bamboo shoots! I've never seen bamboo shoots that weren't in a can or already incorporated into a dish before. They're lovely. They're also expensive - 4.99/lb. Three shoots cost me 13 bucks.
I think I'd team them up with some leeks I have in the refrigerator and call it "East meets Welsh". Heh.
