Did you know that mashed potatoes are not very photogenic? Especially if they are almost naked or only dressed with some whipped soy milk and Earth Balance. They look better in real life. And portabellos stuffed with brown stuffing even if they are topped with melted Daiya don't do much to liven up the white blob in the food picture either.
Can you tell that I'm leading up to a photo excuse? We all agreed that yesterday's "Be grateful Day" dinner rocked 5 stars. The photos don't do the dinner justice. Sigh. I must confess that our pictures were hurried because everything looked better in person and we couldn't wait to eat.
The spinach salad, (the most photogenic of the bunch), is tossed with balsamic vinaigrette, comice pears, dried cranberries, and pecans and is to die for. But please don't do that. Cancel Cancel. I want you to come back tomorrow so I can give you a recipe for stuffed portabellos and a little dessert.
