Apple crisp is probably my favorite thing in the world. Normally it is my “cool, fall day comfort food” but since it has been refusing to feel like fall even slightly here in Kansas I decided to give up and just make some the other day.
If anyone is interested I can post the recipe as well!
Today was a such a long day. I was pretty much running from one thing to the next, and so I am just now having time to deal with my 365. And the scary thing is that every day this week is going to be like this and worse. My 365 may be lacking creativity and effort for the next week because of it, so bear with.
*Sunday, August 7 – Minneapolis
Sunday was the absolutely perfect day; it couldn’t get any better. I met with a group of my really good friends and we headed to Uptown in Minneapolis for the Uptown Art Fair. We walked around there for quite a while. Luckily my friend Alec was with, since he is just about as interested in art as I am. We would walk from booth to booth in awe of everything we were seeing. We chatted it up with a few of the artists that were in their booths to learn about their processes too, it was so interesting to hear from some of them. Then we walked to Tango Sushi for some lunch. The picture is actually of my friend’s sushi, since I just split some pork dumplings with another friend. After sushi we walked down to Lake Calhoun and rented kayaks. We first kayaked over to a small beach to swim for a few minutes, and then continued kayaking through the lakes that are all connected in that area. After kayaking we drove to Sebastian Joe’s for some incredible handmade ice cream. It was quite possibly the best ice cream I have ever had (and I have had a lot of ice cream). Everything is made right there in the shop, and they use all fresh ingredients. So my raspberry chocolate chip ice cream had fresh chunks of raspberries in it; talk about amazing.
I am not the happiest with my pictures from Sunday, but the day was so amazing that I really don’t mind all that much.
And just because it was so incredible, here is my ice cream. Thanks to my friend Blair for holding it for me while I snapped some pictures.
**Thursday, November 18
I’m in another photography slump. Hence this photograph. But, I did have a coupon for buy one get one free blizzards last night.
Well after not getting any sleep at all last night, and a long day today, I thought I deserved a nice little treat. I soaked the strawberries in sugar for a while, and them piled them on my ice cream with some chocolate syrup. Delicious I tell you. It offered a little bit of goodness in an otherwise miserable week. Unfortunately it is a fairly lame picture I think. I cannot wait until I have time, and warm weather, so that I can take pictures of more interesting things. And I will have greater variety then; I feel like my 365 lately has been food or studio shots, lame.
