I had the very best lunch today. Curried tofu salad sandwich with organic homegrown tomato, basil, and spinach. Tomato-basil pasta salad. Rosemary-dijon potato salad (it was really nice and zingy, but sadly, not on my plate when I took this picture). I had a LOT of good food in Atlanta, but this lunch beat it all, hands down. My good friend Wendy recently started a catering and made-to-order business, and she asked if I'd like to try my hand at food photography. I jumped right in.
Goodnight Gracie Specialty Foods
, first, is delicious. Second, it's affordable. Wendy focuses on spreads, ready-to-go dinner-type salads (think Tabouleh or Thai Sesame Noodle Salad), savory cheesecakes, salsas- things you can build a meal around with what you've got in the fridge or pantry. If you're in Memphis, she offers specials every weekend- you can get the dish on facebook
. She also caters full meals, picnic baskets, and most intriguing to me, savory cheesecakes. I'm ordering a tomato cheesecake soon.
I really had a ball taking pictures
of her delicious dishes. Bonus- she asked to use my pottery for the shoot!
I lucked out with the farmers market on Saturday- I'm under the pavilion again. So grateful for the shade and ceiling fans, and so ready for this triple-digit heat to break.
I hope y'all have a nice weekend. I'm working on getting a new-to-me little kiln set up so that I can fire smaller (thus lower amperage) loads and keep my sweet air conditioning on. And school starts on Monday- so my summer break ends, too. See y'all next week!
