Shadow Shot Sunday - Citrusy


Shadow Shot Sunday, by Tracy in Brisbane, arrives again, and shadows of subtlety or complexity allow us to happily pursue this quest.

Here is the result of the always lovely Patti capturing me while prepping a meal, I think was lemon chicken. Brown the poultry, remove and add lemon juice and broth to the skillet - and juice from real fruit (not bottled) is called for here.

But what of the shadow? The most subtle shadow emerges, and that is the thin handle of the wooden spoon that stirs the sauce of citrus slices in an orbital motion, prior to our bon app├ętit.

Shadows hunting can be a fun pursuit and can be found at the always fun Hey Harriet!

Subtle shadows are no less lovely than big, bold, brash ones!

SHADOWY DINNER

A shadow, a shadow, a shadow you say?
A shadow is coming to dinner today?

Oh, what shall we feed it, and what will it eat?
Just toss down a few rays of light at its feet,

And watch its dark mouth gobble up every ray,
But be sure, my friend, you don’t get in its way;

Keep out of the light so it won’t gobble you.
(If I were the hostess, that’s just what I’d do.)

A shadow is easy to feed, so they say,
So welcome your shadow to dinner today.

Here we are sitting in traffic that is backed up or miles on the beltway around Washington, DC. The only pleasant thing is I have my Verizon stick and have been able to get onto the internet and look at yummy photos like yours. Yours, though, is making me very hungry for lemon chicken. Thank goodness I am NOT driving. Loved your post. genie
