52 Photos Project: Still Life


This week's prompt for the 52 Photos Project is "Still Life".  While still life isn't my favorite subject, I was able to find this shot in the archives.


It's a Triple Citrus Tart that I made shortly after watching a couple of restaurant chefs make it on an episode  of Julia Child's cooking show.  I was newly retired and only just beginning to spread my wings with adventurous attempts at cooking and baking.  This tart had orange zest in the crust, a homemade lime curd, and thin slices of lemon, making up the triple citrus part of the name.  Then it was topped with a fluffy meringue...something I'd never attempted before.  It turned out beautifully, and it tasted just as good as it looks.  It was a masterpiece, and I hated to cut into it.  That didn't stop us from eating the whole thing, however.

For more Still Life, visit this week's gallery.
