EGGY

How is it that quiche became girly food?  I was at a cafe recently that specializes in quiche.  The waitress was reciting the day’s specials to a neighboring table of guests when the man interrupted her to say, “I’m not interested in quiche; I’m a MAN.” Really?  It is eggs, cream and cheese.  I thought, “Maybe it is due to the pie form.”  But, men eat pie, right?  I don’t understand his reasoning, but I restrained myself from asking for the sake of the man sitting at my table.  Maybe this next Call is looking for the quiche-goodness in women only.  Maybe.  Investigate…

ARTIST to LOVE: Megan Elizabeth

Peek-a-Boo, We See You!

Say “Hello” to our newest Artist to Love

Megan Elizabeth
Acrylic, Ink & Spraypaint
Jellies, Painting by Megan Elizabeth
Jellies
Painting
The work of MEGAN ELIZABETH reflects an attitude of experimentation, analysis of the elements of accident & a curiosity regarding the beauty created by the transparency & overlapping of ideas. Washes in the paintings, elements of spontaneity & use of collage are fundamental in many of my works. My inspiration comes from waterscapes, sunsets, bright colors in nature & the silhouettes created by extreme light or darkness. Much of my work has been derived from experiences living in Spain, travels in the Caribbean and in Europe & growing up on the east coast of the US.

FAVORITE FOOD: Chocolate

If you work on a bicycle (cop, messenger, etc), how do you bring your lunch to work?  It isn’t as though bike messengers ride around on trikes with baskets on the back.  Are they, by nature of their transportation, doomed to eat out for lunch everyday.  I’m going to assume they make a special lunch bag just for cyclists.  This next Call is all about the bicycle as well.  Take a look…

The hot-fresh-now doughnut purveyor is very popular during tourist season in the Smokies.  Summertime often means a car line for the drive thru stretches for a 1/4 mile down the Parkway.  I don’t understand.  I’ll stand in line, or sit in line, for a lot of foods, but why doughnuts?  Donuts with a K are everywhere aren’t they?  What makes them so special while you’re on vacation?  It baffles me.  This next Call does NOT baffle me, and the name is all about the lines.  Check out the gallery and/or online show choice.  Interesting option…

FEEDS ME

What’s your favorite edible flower?  Most of us have had a lilac or rose petal infused whipped cream.  But I want to encourage you to try a little Calendula in place of saffron or peppery Nasturtium salad.  Just remember that blooms used in cooking must be orgainic–no exceptions.  Also, be sure to wash them well to remove all traces of fertilizers like manure.  This next Call is all about blooms, edible or not.  Take a look…
