Sneak Peek Saturday: A Hint of Things to Come

S and I were busy bees last night! While I whipped up a sweet treat you’ll surely see soon, S sliced and chopped his way through a couple of gorgeous cabbages.

Cabbage massacre!

Neither my baking project nor S’s mound of cabbage was consumed by us last night, though. No, we were preparing for our very first all-vegan potluck! A group of vegans (and vegetarians) from work is getting together today for a lunchtime potluck full of vegan yumminess today. I’m bringing a dessert and S is bringing a cabbage and carrot slaw with a creamy poppy seed dressing. Here’s his big bowl o’ cabbage waiting to be dressed:

Cabbage of many colors.

I’ll share my dessert tomorrow or Monday, and as long as my nerves don’t fail me this afternoon, I’ll also have photos galore of our potluck eats. I’m still not totally comfortable with performing food photography in front of relative strangers, but I’m going to go for it today. Maybe. Hopefully. :)

What’re your thoughts on public food photography?

  2. I only photograph in public when out with people that I am comfortable enough to discuss my blog with – then then understand about taking photos for the blog – but not with work groups
