Titled: The Dilemma by Gayle Thompson. Made with Paper
At one point, I actually remember taking a stack of old headshots out of the garbage and returning them to a pile of stuff in my closet. My friends and family will tell you that I keep a tidy home, but my husband will say you enter Sarah’s closet at your own risk. And this is why, somewhere beneath the drafts of stories, old diaries and sketchbooks are hidden gems just waiting to be dusted off and reborn into something new. Here is another old headshot re-creation.
Cut up pieces of old headshots glued to wood.
I apologize for missing our Foodie Friday this week, but hopefully these delicious veggie wraps will make up for it.
These yummy veggie wraps were discovered by my clever sister, Gretchen. Here’s the recipe. Load up a spinach-flavored tortilla with the following ingredients:
chopped carrots, tomatoes, kale
sliced and sauteed portabella mushrooms
hummus (use a dollop of hummus to seal the wrap)
onion compote (see below)
garnish with sea salt potato chips
For Red Onion Compote:
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/4 cups beer
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 red onions, sliced
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a medium saucepan add 1/2 cup water, beer, brown sugar, and red onions. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally for about 1 hour or until the mixture has thickened and has reduced to about 2 cups. Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool completely.
