My dear husband LOVES to go grocery shopping! And BOY am I one lucky woman because I HATE to go shopping! Yesterday he came home with a bag of onions that was his absolutely delight. "Look what I found!" he giggled, with more enthusiasm than a child out of school on a week day. He was simply delirious with joy!
He plucked this bunch of Vidalia onions from the bag, placed them on the counter, and continued to plan an entire meal AROUND the onions. (Did I mention he liked to cook and to eat almost as much as he likes to grocery shop??? And YES, he's taken, ladies! LOL)
So tonight, we'll dine on splendidly fried onions, meatloaf, baked potatoes, and a few gourmet surprises. And I'll plan to add additional walking miles this week!
I not only decided to sketch these beauties because of my husband's enthusiasm for them, but also for the inspiration Laura continues to grace us with. Last month, she inspired us with sketching interiors. This month, she is sketching food. Her food sketches are INCREDIBLE (as is all her work) ! And so, Laura, this sketch is for you and for my husband. THANKS to both of you!
