Ready for a quick, pink Ten-Word Thursday? Down in Florida we indulged in that vintage beauty queen of creamy soups, Lobster Bisque, and on that night, balancing heaps of seafood, good wine and a camera, I thought the pictures sure to be boffo. But then I saw them, and thought: I once wore a bridesmaid dress that shade. With puffy lace sleeves and a big bow in back, and got grabbed by two wasted groomsmen.
How could this velvet bowl hate the camera? And what’s with those bits? Like lucky ocean gems at the table, up close they just look squidly, or naughty, or like a cook’s lost thumb. That’s already more words than I wanted on this soup, which seems destined to stay vivid in memory but die on film. What does this color suggest to you? Tell me all about it – in ten words.
