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.
