The Week in Photos: December 11-17

December 11


Gol Gappa from Babu Ji.  This Indian street snack consists of a hollow lentil shell filled with a soupy sauce called imli pani. Pop the whole golf-ball sized snack into your mouth, and it explodes on your tongue to release a mouthful of tangy, tamarind sauce.


A rare selfie in a year of images. I spend so much time behind the camera that I can be uncomfortable in front of it, but this year in images has been as much about personal exploration as it has been about the world around me.

December 12:  Trying a new recipe from Cooks Country (Feb/Mar 2016):  French White Bean Stew aka “lazy man’s cassoulet.”


Browned chicken thighs and bratwurst.


Simmering in a stew of chicken stock, cannelloni beans, garlic, onion, and white wine.


The final product, topped with toasted bread and parsley.
