C'mon and enter the Ugly Food Photo contest. You might win a nifty kitchen implement and, besides, it would be fun. Aw, c'mon. Don't be chicken!
If you want some artistic inspiration, check this out - last year's entries, including the winner.
I promise not to enter this one, because it would sweep the prize and then everyone would moan that the fix was in, since I and My Beloved are the judges. This is my icky version of cream-braised Brussels sprouts, the dish I wrote about here. It was delicious but it looked as if a nursing baby had thrown up on some overcooked sprouts. That's what happens when you get distracted while cooking and reading a potboiler at the same time and the cream curdles from too much heat. As if that wasn't bad enough, once again I forgot that that particular angle in my particular kitchen leaves a deadly gray shadow on the lower edge of the photo.
Anyway, I just know you have some truly ugly food photos, too, that you'd like to enter into the competition. So, c'mon, dig 'em out and post a link to them in the comments of this post or the first invitation blog a few days ago. You can also email me the file if you are understandably reluctant to post it up on your own blog; no one wants to scare away readers. Send it to PamelaHyland@comcast.net, if that's the case.
The deadline is Monday, March 7th, so don't delay. We are looking forward to seeing how truly awful food can look.
