The original idea for this comic was something to do with ground squirrel, which I found out is the technical animal name of a bunch of different creatures, like marmots and prairie dogs and chipmunks. Unfortunately there wasn't a good way to incorporate ground squirrel into a comic while also involving food without outright having a recipe that involved squirrel meat, so instead I started looking up different herb names and came across this instead. Chervil is apparently French parsley and should be more well known since it is actually in quite a few dishes. I'm not sure why I'm less sad about a fish for dinner than squirrel but here we go! Now it's time for me to decide whether to have garlic pasta or tomato pasta for dinner..
