About this piece:
When we were kids my mom would plan our dinners and post them on the refrigerator for us to see. In this book, I commemorate some of mom’s top repeat meals by ingredients and handwritten side comments with my take on each dish. The menu (or what mom likes to say, “itinerary”) starts on a Monday and ends on Sunday. Each ingredient is represented by a small icon drawing. The book is hand bound using a simple stab binding and old stitcher thread.
