Ears, Books & Ginger Ale

The bulk of my week so far has consisted of the following:

– My ears being poked and proded at the doctor’s…

– Multiple trips to the pharmacy…

– Antibiotics, ear drops and sprays…

– And a depleted appetite (to put it mildly).

What has my week not included? Any time in the kitchen. {sad face}

But I’ve been putting the non-kitchen time to good use and have totally engrossed myself in Plate to Pixel – a wonderful book on food photography written by the fabulous Helene from Tartelette. I am on the 5th chapter and am already gathering a wealth of information that I can’t wait to put into practice. Some tidbits I have heard here and there, but what a wonderful and concise book with all of the information in one place! If you are a blogger or interested in food photography, I highly recommend it!

I’m also about to pick up Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. Have any of you read it? Thoughts?

Now, back to my mint ginger ale (Tom Tucker shout out for all you Pittsburghers!)…
