Lentil Soup and a Side of Photos

It’s Sunday and snowing. Instead of trudging outside in boots and parka to look for winter pictures, I decided to take the lazy way out. It’s a perfect time to make soup. I had all the fixings for lentil soup and a desire to take veggie photos. Too bad I didn’t have an old wooden table with soft afternoon light coming through the windows in my restored farmhouse with the big bright kitchen. I live in a tiny artsy-crafty house with small windows and not a lot of light. So, I improvised and had a lot of fun making soup and photos.

I could just imagine being a food blog writer, cooking and taking photographs of dishes and ingredients artfully placed on an antique kitchen table using available light streaming in through large windows. I would display my creations in mismatched vintage china with white linen napkins embroidered around the edges.

For now I will enjoy my soup in a red bowl and catch the drips with a paper towel. Enjoy!

  1. Hi Pamela, it’s never too late to become a food blogger 😀 And although I AM a food blogger, I don’t have that antique table either that you describe, but I’d love to have one!
