Lots of pictures

Somehow I ended up with a bunch of photos I haven't posted, so I'll keep words to a minimum.

Roasted Corn Chowder. An amalgamation of 'roasted corn soup' from The Vegan Gourmet, 'roasted corn chowder' from Vegan Planet, and 'springtime corn soup' from the newspaper. Also, I mixed in some zucchini and capsicum for a heartier dinner. Garnished with tomato and basil.

Sushi, not made by me. This is from a new Japanese restaurant near my house. Avocado roll, tofu roll, and vegetarian maki.
A yummy snack bar I found on the clearance rack at Cole's. Slightly sweet, with a chewy texture and a fruity/nutty flavour, this was good, but hardly worth paying full price for (~$2 for one).
Potato gnocchi tossed with olive oil and some sauteed garlic, carrots, capsicum and zucchini. And lots of freshly ground black pepper. Yum.

Lasagna, step by step. The bottom layer was tomato sauce with eggplant and capsicum. In the middle was tofu mixed with spinach, carrots, zucchini and green peas, topped with white sauce.
The very top layer was noochy white sauce topped with fresh bread crumbs and fresh parsley.
Here it is, cut open.

And finally, I was riding my bike home the other day along the river, and what did I see....
Take a closer look. It's a pelican, out enjoying the late afternoon sun!

Yum; I need to make gnocci soon; you've convinced me.

As for the cheesecake, I've had a piece plain, a piece topped with strawberries, and one piece with a little chocolate syrup on top... each way was super-divine.

Aww beautiful Pelican! His beak can hold more than his belly can! ;)

Your lasagne looks DELISH!! and I've been thinking about making a corn chowder for a while now. I attempted one a few weeks ago, but it was so bland I had to rescue it and turn it into a curry soup. I'll have to try again.

IT LOOKS FOR HERE: http://www.interpol.int/public/thb/vico/default.asp

Wanted: search for this man photographed sexually abusing children
INTERPOL is seeking the help of the public to try to identify this man, photographed sexually abusing children in a series of images posted on the Internet.
The photos shown here are from a series of around 200 pictures involving 12 different young boys, believed to have been taken in Vietnam and Cambodia in 2002 or 2003.
These pictures have been produced by specialists from Germany’s federal police force, the Bundeskriminalamt, working from originals found on the Internet, which had been digitally altered to disguise the man’s face.
Extensive police efforts worldwide to identify the man have so far failed and Interpol is now enlisting the support of the media and the public to help identify him as a priority.
Anyone with information on his identity or whereabouts should contact their local police or INTERPOL’s Trafficking in Human Beings Unit via email.

Y'know, I never thought to add tomato to corn chowder. The next time I make some, I'm definitely stealing this idea! XOXO
