Artist Hong Yi Plays with her Food for 30 Days

For almost every day last month Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi (who often goes by the nickname Red) created a fun illustration made with common (and occasionally not so common) food. Her parameters were simple: the image had to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop could be a white plate. With that in mind Yi set out to create landscapes, animals, homages to pop culture, and even a multi-frame telling of the three little pigs. The project, which still appears to be ongoing, has been documented heavily around the web, but if you haven’t seen it all head over to her Facebook and read an interview on designboom. Photos will also be appearing on her Instagram at @redhongyi.

Tbh “sushi rules” totally exhaust me. I already do enough wrong during the day, now I have to be judged at dinner because I didn’t eat my sushi piece in one bite? Literally everything you do while eating sushi is “wrong.” It’s just so tiring and rigid. If you don’t want me to eat my sushi with soy sauce don’t let me into your restaurant.

I KNOW. I read a list of sushi rules (on Lauren Conrad’s website, sorry I’m so lame) and realized I regularly broke every single one. This is why my favorite sushi is $7.50 from the corner market: I can sit on my bedroom floor, make a thick soup of soy sauce and wasabi for dipping, and eat it with my hands.

I’m going to make this Cheddar Breakfast Bread Pudding when I go home to my parents for Christmas, because:
They have ramekins and I don’t
I can wake up at 11am  and make time-consuming breakfasts that involve pre-heating the oven because I’ll have the whole week off work
The french bread baguette from the Fry’s at the corner of Tatum and Shea is my favorite french bread baguette on the planet
But whenever I buy it I feel pressured to eat it as quickly as possible so I’m not left with half a loaf of stale, hard bread. But this recipe calls for stale bread, so problem solved
My parents always have a ton of cheese hanging around in their refrigerator, which is why I love them

I was just about to type, “I really need to stop by Penzey’s Spices in Grand Central and pick up some extra fancy cinnamon” but then I googled it and it’s now closed! No no no no no! There is another location 5 minutes from my parent’s house in Arizona, but I won’t be going home until Christmas, and obviously I’ll be making eggnog cupcakes and apple pies and everything before that. Le sigh.
