I am starting to fall a little behind with Yes!Chef!’s food blogging. He’s pumping out great food faster than I can take pictures, edit them, taste the food and blog. Then, there’s this whole world around me that is begging to be photographed, to say nothing of my photography business. So many beautiful people, so little time. I’ve been as busy as our Lavender Bees. All this to say that I have some heavy duty catching up to do, hopefully in the next few days.
I saw these colorful mini sweet peppers at the store the other day and I wanted to photograph them but I had to come up with some sort of recipe so that Yes! Chef! would make them for me and then I could photograph them. Lo and behold there was a perfectly great recipe right on the back of the bag. I brought them home and waved them in front of Yes! Chef! He said something like, “Yes, they are pretty”. He knows my propensity for Crow Photography (photographing any pretty, shiny or colorful thing that I see), so he wasn’t culinarily very interested. Then I showed him the recipe on the back of the bag and I said things like, “Mmmmm. This looks great” and “I sure do love capers, olives and peppers” and finally, “Could you please make this for me and we could put it on steaks tonight.” That did it.
