My internet friend Scott Thomas regularly posts photo assignments, and I always intend to comply but never seem to be able to make the deadlines. This time, I promised myself, I’m absolutely doing it.
Well wouldn’t you know it, I have about an hour and a half before the deadline, and I’m just writing this post now. Nice going, you over-achiever you.
The current assignment is “White.” I had no clue how to approach it, so I took the easy way out: food.
This is my white breakfast. Quite healthy, too. Oats, milk, and for added white factor, white chocolate chips and shredded coconut. I added the crystallized ginger in there because, well, its pretty color offsets the bland color of the oats, and the bag of ginger was right next to my bag of chocolate chips.
And just to prove it wasn’t just a setup shot for the assignment:
I ate it. Yes, all of it. And you know what? It was quite good. It may be my new way to eat oatmeal in the morning. (Please don’t ask me what happened to the ginger. I have no clue.)
Thanks, Scott! I didn’t expect this assignment to come with this added bonus.
Speaking of bonuses, this morning I woke up to a snow-covered backyard. So I thought I’d take one more white shot for extra credit.
I do love fresh snow. Especially when I get to look at it from inside my warm home, having chocolate in my oatmeal.
