Creating from dawn to dusk and beyond yields countless new treasures, failures, and everything in between. End products are usually easy to quantify, whether it’s a photo shoot that turned out exactly as planned, or a recipe that is almost, but not quite, ready for the spotlight. But what about the work that doesn’t lead up to one final output? Those are the scraps, the leftovers that get pushed to the back of the fridge where they’re forgotten. Rather than letting them spoil and go to waste, I’m pulling them all out this afternoon to reheat and serve anew!
First up is the main course: I have a number of Vegan a la Mode book signings and samplings coming up! If you’re in the Connecticut area, you won’t want to miss the chance to taste a few featured flavors. Even if you already have the book or don’t even want a copy, stop by for a taste, ask a few questions, and learn about methods for making ice cream without a machine. Those events are as follows…
July 31st: 4 – 6 pm at Health in a Hurry. 1891 Post Rd, Fairfield CT.
August 11th: Noon – 2 pm at Thyme & Season. 3040 Whitney Ave, Hamden CT.
August 18th: Noon – 3 pm at Fairfield University Bookstore. 1499 Post Rd, Fairfield CT
For the next morsel on the plate, I’ve entered my Pomegranate Ice Cream Pops into Ethical Ocean’s vegan recipe contest! Please vote for me, early and often, because you can log your choice up to once per day. The more often you vote, the better your chances of winning a fabulous prize for yourself, too.
Finally, as the gravy over the top, this summer semester’s required class has forced me to face my photographic nemesis: People. Yes, I have little experience actually shooting portraits of my fellow wo/man in any serious manner, so it’s been a learning experience, to say the least. I’ve been sharing some of my favorite shots through twitter, but you can also check in with the photo set I’ve been feeding on Flickr.
There, now that wasn’t so bad, was it? With the icebox cleared out and ready to accept more leftovers, we return you to your regularly scheduled diet of fresh foods and new posts.
