This "park" where we went was an old farm site, with adorable old tin and granite and steel and wooden out buildings PERFECT for taking pictures! It was a great setting and fabulous looking subjects...although the baby in the group really wanted NOTHING to do with getting her picture taken!

Here is my favorite from the day:

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out.
