I have a huge weakness for visually stunning foods. I have a huge weakness for visually stunning anything. This, of course, is a snotty way of saying: I like pretty things. That’s right; I and some 99% of the world’s population suffer from this affliction. I don’t know about those 99% but I often (too often) base my purchases on the pretty factor. I bought my laptop because I thought it was pretty and I was convinced that its prettiness will encourage me to work on it often. If I had a car, I’d most likely go for pretty and I would ignore all other specs (is that what you call them? specs?). I am a master at finding and purchasing pretty and sometimes very impractical items (which is a big no-no in Germany, where to be practical is the highest of virtues). There is only one exception to my pretty rule: husbands… Those I like to be handsome, not pretty. But when it comes to cooking, I go back to pretty. Choosing what to cook next, involves leafing through my cookbooks and staring at luscious photographs, then looking at the recipe and evaluating the “will it be a pain in the ass to make” factor (henceforth referred to as the PITA factor). So, when I saw these zucchini rolls, I immediately thought they looked gorgeous and were composed of all the things I liked. The only problem was that, like many pretty things, they were very impractical to make. Let me rephrase, on a 1-10 PITA scale, they were a solid 7.5. But they looked so good and I’m just so unabashedly impractical.
