Visit With An Old Friend

sweettable_3891 copy-2400pxThis was taken before I even considered photography as a profession. I was at a friend’s home bridal shower and saw how beautifully they had put out a sweet table. When I saw the sunlight kissing the tops of those strawberries, I knew I had to get a shot of that! I need to get more food photography in my portfolio. So, hey Good Lookin’, whatcha got cookin’?

*In case you don’t recognize the quote (and why would you?), it’s from the 1974 Martin Scorsese film Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. My friend of over 40 years, Joni, and I loved the wildly inappropriate timing and exquisite delivery of this line by actress Valerie Curtain (Vera).  Joni and find a way to say it to each other every year.

applepieThis is the America’s Test Kitchen Deep Dish Apple Pie Recipe, by the way. I didn’t trim the all-butter crust enough (‘cuz you just can’t get enough crust!), and I probably should have stuck the assembled pie back in the fridge to firm up more before baking. The fluted edge morphed into a Hello, Dali mushroom-like thing, but it is delicious nonetheless! Next time I am getting that old school device that clamps onto the table and peels and slices the apples all in one shot.
