Food For Thought

I still feel full from Thanksgiving dinner but I'm one of those people who loves to eat and I really enjoy food so I usually just keep going until I can't possibly go anymore. And, one of the things that I love most about enjoying food is seeing everything that goes into making the finished product. Ingredients!!

One of my favorite things to do in New York is to walk the Union Square Farmer's Market. So much local goodness. This time of year is the perfect time to shop for fresh ingredients - family meals, fun celebrations, celebrating the first day of December, a random Tuesday night in my house...

And, incidentally, two of these images have been published in the most recent issue of F-Stop Magazine in the Food Theme Group Exhibit. This is my second time being published in F-Stop and I'm thrilled to be there!

Published in F-Stop Magazine but actually taken in a market in Thailand and not in New York.

By the way, tonight I'm going to the Swiss Picture Bank Launch Party. I haven't tried it yet but I'm told that Swiss Picture Bank provides the first truly permanent backup solution for photographers. It secures your photos in a quadruple-redundant, archive-quality storage system reinforced with a double-your-money-back, lifetime guarantee. I'm hoping to learn a lot more at the launch party.

If you're in New York City tonight, you should consider going...I think it will be a lot of fun and great for networking!

These are gorgeous! I love the radishes and carrots. Would look amazing in any room of the house, but especially the kitchen... OOOHhhh!!!! Or on the walls of a restaurant. If only we owned a restaurant. My husband is a chef, stuck in a job where his title is "Executive Chef", but he doesn't cook. I feel bad for him. He hates it, but it is what keeps us warm and fed. Someday he'll have his own place and maybe we can decorate with some Ciao, Chessa prints!

Congrats on being published again in F-Stop again!
