Friday Photos (a day late)

*If you are just tuning in, you can read about the reasoning behind these Friday Photos posts here.

I started this post yesterday morning — but then life happened and I spent the majority of the day running around doing name changing things. Both the social security office and the DMV proved to be adventure-like outings… but I’m happy to say, I’m now legally — Sarah Ann Nielsen. Now I just have to perfect signing it.

Next on the agenda was a meet-up with Jill from Schroeter’s Gluten Free Bake Shop. Much more to come on their tasty treats, but just know that there are whoopie pies involved and you’re going to want to be on the look out.

You can purchase their products now at the Gluten-Free Trading Company’s Chase Avenue location.

And then there was an invite to the farm. Which you know we can’t pass up. We make our way out to the countryside, then we eat, drink and be merry.

So the  Friday Photo post got pushed into Saturday.


It’s hard to believe this was my view, just a week ago.

Weather that lends itself to a picnic.

(still waiting on New Planet to make their way to Wisconsin)

A trip to Denver isn’t complete without a visit to Udi’s Cafe — my personal favorite: the Club with bacon and avocado (which is normally served on their regular jalapeno-cheddar bread, so they offered to add jalapenos and cheddar to the GF sandwich so I didn’t miss out!) And some sweet potato fries dipped in chipotle mayo. Boom. Done.

I often have people comment on all of the food photos I take. Some friends are trained well and know not to touch our food at a restaurant until my phone is out and ready to shoot. Others are so used to it that it doesn’t phase them. Sometimes Mark says, “it’s a no-picture dinner” after I’ve tried unsuccessfully to get a clear shot at the dinner hour lately. (I’ve said it before, Wisconsin winters are lousy for evening photo lighting) But most of the time, people want to know how we have time to cook or bake AND get pictures of it all.

Don’t be fooled. We eat simple meals all the time. Convenience meals during our hectic weekdays. The kind I sometimes throw on a piece of foil, wrap up and eat at my desk when I get to work.

But it’s food. And whether it’s simple and served on foil or super fancy-pants, it’s what we do. We get in the kitchen, turn up the tunes and do our thing… and then hope the lighting is good enough to get a shot.

    • it’s funny when I pull up iPhoto to show pictures from a vaca — and most of them are food! it is what it is I guess. (and luckily we just got married, so we’re set on the recent photos for a while) 🙂
