How I Survived Cooking Christmas Dinner

This year, I found creative relief from the Christmas Day pressure of cooking for a crowd by starting a little photo series during the process: “Meal Prep Discards.”

My kitchen is fortunate to be on the sunny side of the house. So what’s cooking often calls out to me for a picture. But this is the first time I remember being captivated by what I’m not cooking.

These are two of my IPhone snaps from last Friday. The butter lettuce core is a definite keeper. I wish it were on a different backdrop rather than this cutting board, but this is authentic to the theme. We’ll see if the root vegetable peels make the cut as I add to the collection.

  1. Ooh, lots of inspiration here. Tomorrow (1/1) is a huge day of cooking for me – we have 8 people coming for dinner on 1/2. Will look for inspiration and keep my phone handy for photos!
