case of the blues

Three pebbles in warm, wooly, blue sweaters. My desire for felting around items is becoming an addiction.

pepper shrimp

I know I originally intented this blog to focus more on my artistic endeavours, but I think cooking also constitutes as 'making things,' don't you think?
I made this dish today ~ pepper shrimp, following my mum's recipe. It's simple, spicy, and very delicious.

Pepper Shrimp
Shrimp - deveined and cleaned
Pinch of salt
Finely chopped hot chili pepper
Clove of garlic - crushed
Finely ground herbs - I used parsley, culantro and chives

Mix all the ingredients together and let marinate for 1/2 to 1 hour
Heat oil (I use sunflower) on high heat and saute the shrimp for 10 minutes, stirring regularly until all the moisture has evaporated
Serve warm or at room temperature

It's the ultimate finger food, and one that really gets your tastebuds going

off to nz

My most recently finished project for a customer in New Zealand. I still can't get enough of these gray pod bowls. I've got a couple more ideas up my sleeve involving these.

something new

Um...hi there. Hope you don't mind me dipping my toes in the water.
I am by no means a master of the written word, but lately thoughts of a blog have been lingering in my mind. Nothing big, nothing spectacular. Just an spot to record my creating process and share whatever floats into my mind. My moleskine is ridden with sketches and notes and scribbles, and this seems like a nice place to sweep them all together.
