I’m finally back in Miami after 10 days with my family in Houston. While away, I spent some time trying to clean up and organize my computer. I went through my photos and deleted a bunch of dark, blurry restaurant photos that I kept, probably as a reminder of a dinner out or a dish I liked. I also rediscovered some photos. Photos like the one above, of Margie Pikarski, that I like but never posted.
I took that photo when I was working on a story about women in farming that appeared in Edible South Florida’s latest issue. I spent a good four hours with Margie at the farm. At one point, after packing loads of avocados, she drew a face on one and said it was a woman farmer. I like the picture and didn’t want to let it just sit on my computer so I thought I’d share it and a few more from 2010. They’re random shots of food but all of them are memories of the year that ended.
