Oh, the pressure.
Nancy and I are having our food and photography event in eight days and I am still struggling with the menu.
I want to go with small plates, for sure -- but not certain what to do. I want to make sure that the meal is a stand out, but also complements what is in season.
But, goodness -- fall eats can be so predictable.
As a consequence, I have been browsing some of the dishes I have previously prepared. Nothing seems good enough! Goodness -- it's like looking in the closet and complaining, "Bah! I have nothing to wear!" It's always a lie.
I trust in my culinary skills -- I do.
But what to make?
I thought about stuffed pork.
Too simple; too easy.
Turkey? Too predictable.
Filet mignon? Oooh -- that would be awesome!
Would a roast be too predictable?
But I did get my copy of Saveur today. Maybe I will do the cover challenge for the event. Not sure at this moment, but I would gladly take your suggestions.

- Create. Snap. Eat.
- WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!
