grocery shopping ranks low on the list
of my most fulfilling activities

as a result ... putting them away
often becomes a creative photo diversion

resulting in the days chili ingredients
becoming a natural holiday decoration for the afternoon

Clever. I like to turn the fruit into a decorator item too.

Oh, but I LOVE grocery shopping...yes, I really do! I love to cook, so getting in the groceries is creative as I love seeing all the fruits and veggies, neatly stacked cans, rows of goodness waiting to be turned into WOW for the mouth, the body, the spirit. But I also like using the shopping for decorative and creative purposes... like you're so cleverly done here, Elk--very fun post! :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

thank you for this. grocery shopping can reduce me to tears - if i like something, it will soon be discontinued by the store near my house. i must drive across town for everything, and in this busy season, that means in the direction of and past the only mall. which means i spend december truly annoyed about grocery shopping. lol! thank you!!

I don't like going grocery shopping, but I love the feeling of having all kinds of ingredients to make my heart's desire for dinner each night! Love your creativity!

I like to go grocery shopping:) I live in a smallish town and it always ends up being a social event...running into people to chat with and catch up with...meeting new people to discuss food with...laughing with the young people at the cash registers. In fact this morning I was even thinking it might be a fun place to work:)

Still, taking photos of the food I take home is often the best part of the trip...your tomatos look festive!

It seems like nature's decorations are often the most photogenic...fruits, vegetables, eggs. Nature's ornaments.

GORGEOUS diversion! And very Christmas-y tomatoes!

Kimmie said...

making lemons into lemonade as they say .... or tomatoes into a juicy photo op :)

What luscious tomatoes!

elizabeth said...

I adore grocery shopping. It is one of my most favorite things to do (which is probably why I am at the grocery store about 3-5 times a week ;)

But I still love your diversion. :)
