This image went viral which I thought was funny for a bunch of figs, but check out a sketch of this photo here. Now I can count myself (or at the very least, my photographic work) as someone's muse. The artist also did a bunch of food sketches from a collection of my photos which I take as a huge, HUGE, compliment.

    Kat - the produce clerk had just set these out so there wasn't even a price on them yet, but I already wanted to HOARD! And then when I found out that they were from Turkey, it was hard to resist running off with the entire flat. But I didn't think that was nice so we took the best (biggest) ones from half of the box. Heehee

    I be stuffing some with mascarpone then wrapping in pancetta and pan-frying. Will try to remember to take a photo before feeding my face.

    IE - I tell you, it makes a grown woman cry. The italian figs don't come close.

    The ones from Turkey are supposed to be a-w-e-s-o-m-e :) I think if you "forget" to take a photo, everyone will forgive you :) (maybe)
