Made dinner the other night. It was my attempt to decorate the plates. And make two sides. I haven’t quite achieved that level of skill. Or maybe I just need simpler sides. The potatoes were a little undercooked :-/ Oh, well. Next time they will be better.
Another successful bag. The design for this bag went through several iterations, but finally turned out. It’s rather simple and easy to make. Here’s just a picture for now.
