πŸŽ¨πŸ˜‹ Thursday Art and Dinner Date: Foodie February - Fruit!

 

Welcome my Friends, to Thursday's Art and Dinner Date! 😊😊

πŸ’›A note to those who link to TADD: As you may have noticed, sometimes it takes me a wee little while to visit you! If you link your blog's url, I can't always find the post that you intended for the TADD entry! Please link the post, not your blog URL - THANK YOU!!! πŸ’›

🎨For our 🎨 Art Date 🎨, today's optional prompt is Fruit! Please feel free to share any art you've created, we would love to see it! Does a Cherry Blossom chocolate bar count as a fruit? Tweety Bird thinks so! I used to LOVE that candy bar! Do you remember the commercial?



⬆️⬆️ This was the commercial I remember from when I was a kid in the 1970's! Does this bring back memories for anyone?



⬆️⬆️ I've been deep into art courses and I used some of the glazing techniques I learned in my studies for this watercolor pear study.



πŸ˜‹For our πŸ˜‹ Dinner Date πŸ˜‹, I made some Zucchini Bread! I replaced the eggs with some applesauce to make this a vegan treat.



I used my Homemade Unsweetened Applesauce and it was delicious!



⬆️⬆️ Many of you know Nicole from DVArtist, Art, Food, Gardening blog. She is a sweet and very talented friend. She sent me one of her faces. I adore it!

On the video front:

πŸŽ¨πŸ˜‹ Thursday Art and Dinner Date: Collage

 

Welcome my Friends, to Thursday's Art and Dinner Date! 😊😊

🎨For our 🎨 Art Date 🎨, today's optional prompt is Collage! Please feel free to share any art you've created, we would love to see it! Bugs Bunny decided to make a collage as a tribute to the late and great Mel Blanc who voiced pretty much all of the Looney Tune voices. He was also the voice of Woody Woodpecker and Barney Rubble from the Flintstones. Mel Blanc did a lot of old time radio as well before he got big with his cartoon voices! I drew Bugs and made the collage from internet images using Photoshop!



πŸ˜‹For our πŸ˜‹ Dinner Date πŸ˜‹, I managed to do a little vegan baking and cooking this past week! I made a vegan pineapple upside-down cake. I hope to have a recipe transcribed in the near future! It tasted just like a cake made with eggs, milk and butter!


⬆️⬆️ I got some canning done the last week as well. Homemade Mild Salsa and Homemade Chunky Pizza Sauce. I got about 20 pints of each done so we're set well into the spring!


⬆️⬆️ I also tried a few vegan "cheeses". The "cheese" on the left is made with cashews and tastes a bit like a nutty cream cheese. The "cheese" on the right is like a cheez whiz, and it really has a good cheesy flavour! I wanted to try these out before making videos and sharing recipes because they both need a wee bit of tweaking still! 


⬆️⬆️ Bread LOVE!! I made some Lemon Yogurt Muffins and some Old Fashioned White Bread.

On the video front:

⬆️⬆️ For Rain Frances Art For Kids, I have How To Draw A Quesadilla!

⬆️⬆️ For Rain's Kitchen and Garden, I'm sharing How To Make Lemon Yogurt Muffins!

⬆️⬆️ I'm also showing a video of Jack and Raven playing in the snow!

I painted a galaxy with watercolours this week too! I feel like I'm in my 20's again...going to school part time and working full time! My watercolour course is going well, I'm learning a lot - and I plan on taking more courses! I'm pretty much working full time on my YouTube channels now too. I have lots of things I'm a-cookin' up for 2023!!


πŸ˜‹For our πŸ˜‹ Dinner Date πŸ˜‹, I don't have much to show! Thanks so much for the well wishes last week, we are both feeling much healthier! I did make some Corn Bread and it was delicious!

πŸ˜‹For our πŸ˜‹ Dinner Date πŸ˜‹, it's been a soup week for us. We both have some kind of stomach flu that we can't shake. I've been hibernating in bed mostly. I hope you're all well!
