Appearance Matters

I cooked pork chops, mushrooms, applesauce , mashed potato.  Ailz thought it was nice, so it wasn't entirely a mistake, but it looked quite awful- like an undifferentiated greyish gloop,  like porridge.  I ate it (I'm almost religious these days about not wasting food) but I didn't enjoy eating it- even though it tasted fine.  I don't normally think about the way food looks, but obviously I should.  A small pile of bright green peas would have made all the difference.
