Thankful November 16th: Food

I always like to joke that without food, I would die. I suppose for me, the real truth is that I would die a little inside if I couldn’t cook and bake. I love making good food for people I love. And I love watching them enjoy what I’ve made. My mother and both of my grandmothers were very good cooks, and I learned some fun recipes and technics from each of them. Now I get to bake and cook for my husband, who isn’t a finicky eater, but always goes out of his way to praise whatever I make for him.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Pie or Pi (March 14)

pie_nmp

In honor of Pi day on March 14, this week’s challenge is all about pie (or pi). Bring out your pies: fresh fruit pies, pumpkin pies, mincemeat pies, any pies. I love baking pies, and my husband loves eating pie. Fresh peach and raspberry is one of his favorite. As we are starting to come out of winter here in Utah, this picture is a fond memory of last summer and the bounty of the fruit orchards and raspberry patches that abound in our fair state.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) OF PIES (OR PI).

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography. Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
