Soup was good but I forgot about freezing potato based things and the Gnocchi was kinda gritty reheated. I would either only make enough to not freeze next time or add it when serving instead. Most people wouldn’t even notice but I have a bit of texture sensitivity.

🆕 I was not a big fan of the tuna or salad – they were okay but wouldn’t buy either again.

👩🏻‍🍳 COOKING FOR SANDY DAY
A few days a week, I cook meals for a neighbor who had a stroke last year and has limited mobility.

We often share a meal kit or something similar and spend some time together since neither of us go out too much 😁

Today is one of her days. I’m enjoying having someone to cook for again. I haven’t cooked for her in several months because I was sick and didn’t want to get her sick. Butter Chicken is one of her favorites so I made it for her today…

🎨ON THE WORKBENCH

KROSMASTER DRAGOON POWER PACK

KROSMASTER is a collectable game with large Chibi style, cute, pre-painted figures. I bought a bunch of them – they are adorable. I wanted to teach myself to use an airbrush and thought these would be good for that.

Here is the figure as she comes. I started her in 2020 before I quit painting. At some point her hammer must have broken and it is no where to be found…

Like many Anime / Chibi style models – pretty much anything goes color wise so I was practicing color fades on her hair… It will be nice to finish her.

The Monkey King – Fairytale Games
Paints: Mostly Warcolors
Inks: Warcolors & Army Painter

I gave up painting a few years ago when my hand tremors and weakness got to a point I was more miserable trying to paint than enjoying it. I am finding my way back after 2yrs and am going to learn new techniques to work around my limitations.
