Canned Goods

Enchilada Sauce
When you're between local events to shoot and you need a subject for a filler post, why not bulk canned food? Great idea, especially if that's what's lying around on your hard drive.

St. Louis University has a ten thousand seat arena for its sports teams and traveling music shows. My son in law is assistant director of food service there. One summer day when nothing was going on he took me and my wife around backstage, as it were. The big commercial kitchens were interesting. Imagine how much fun you could have with almost 3 kg of red enchilada sauce!

The bottom picture is from Soulard Farmers Market. Definitely not the stand catering to locavores, as seen here on July 16. Wow, what could you do with three and a half kg of hot fudge sundae sauce or a like amount of sliced beets? It might be a blast but, at the same time, too horrible to contemplate.

The hot fudge sundae sauce would not be a problem Bob, I could work my way through that no worries!! Have a great weekend, for me here in Perth it's wet, wet and a little bit wet!!

i'd eat the beets first, then join with grace slurping our way through the hot fudge sundae sauce.

There's so many can label designs and colours that they would make for a good still life photo.
