Pika-pika Holyweek Platter

>> April 25, 2011

During holy week, it's a tradition to refrain from eating meat. Fish, however, is allowed. Not sure why, but in my opinion, fish still is meat. But I'm not going to argue about that since this is a long time tradition/practice.

On good Friday, I made a veggie platter for our dinner. Mind you, this isn't just for lent. This is a yummy snack alternative too versus eating chips.

The platter consisted baked carrot balls, baked egg plant slices and toasted french bread with tomato, onion, and mozarella topped with fresh basil. I just prepared a home-style sour cream for the dip.

To make the sour cream, you just need:
- 2-3 Tbsp mayonnaise
- fresh lemon juice
- salt and pepper

Start with 1 Tbsp of lemon juice poured on the mayonnaise and start mixing. Add more lemon juice if you want it more tangy. Then put salt and pepper to taste.

I work and live at night time. I am a person deprived of natural light. I rarely cook in the morning as I'm almost always asleep, else busy with house chores. As much as I love natural light in my photography, I'm afraid I don't usually have that luxury, unless I sacrifice my sleep, or make an effort to stay up longer during the day to do a cooking + photo session. So I depend on my flash, and sometimes, available light from my fluorescent bulbs. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats the natural light, I am, so far, satisfied with my shots using my flash that I learned to love.

I always look forward to the weekends for some sunlight.
