It is a gray and rainy day in PEI. The project of photographing the wonderfully colored metallic roofs in PEI won't be happening today. I left the rain cover for my camera at home....So what is a girl to do? There is reading, a binge of couch potato Netflix watching, or there are real live PEI spuds to build activities around.
Off I went to the Coop hoping to be able to buy just 2 potatoes to make a small soup, but this was the smallest bag and it was $1.79. Armed with an onion, a few sausages, the chard purchased at a farm stand yesterday, and the nearly dead carrots that had been left in the fridge, soup-making began in earnest. But that didn't take very long, even with making roasted parsnips for a snack.
After I had washed a few potatoes, the bottom of the sink looked like a silty red river bottom. I thought of taking a photo but why use a silty sink when you can set up your tripod and do a full-blown photo shoot?. How often does the lowly spud get its picture taken? My first adventure in food photography...May I present The Clean and the Dirty: Spuds from the Hood,
