Family Grilling Party with Sears Grilling #GrillingisHappiness #SoFabU

For the past six weeks I’ve been working through my SoFabU/Sears Grilling food photography course.

Sometimes it’s been difficult to make the assignments look the way I want them to.  Sometimes I wasn’t at all happy with the pictures I took.

And then, there were times where I was blown away by the progress I’d made.

The latter happened more often than not.  I feel my photography skills have grown by leaps and bounds, and can’t even begin to tell you how thankful I am to Sears and SoFabU for putting this together.

It was a phenomenal course and I am definitely a better blogger for having taken it.

Family Grilling Party

This week’s assignment involved putting all of the knowledge we’ve gained from the past few weeks to the test by hosting a home grilling party of some sort.

We happened to have family coming into town anyway, so this week was perfect for this.

Below are some of the pictures that made the cut this week.

My famous deviled eggs.  They’ll convert people.

The most delicious cucumber salad you’ll ever eat.  My father-in-law made it:  cucumbers, red peppers, tomatoes, green onions, a few slices of serrano peppers, white vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil.

Peel the cucumbers and then scrape the sides long ways with the tines of a fork.  Slice the cucumbers and chop the tomatoes, red bell pepper, and green onion and add it to a bowl.

For a small bit of heat, add a few slices of serrano pepper.

Mix in soy sauce, white vinegar, and sesame oil to taste.

One of the best pictures I’ve ever taken.  Ever.

Yummy steaks!

Meat cooking away!

Babydoll even hopped in to take a picture.

The final product: steak, deviled eggs, red rice, and cucumber salad.  We finished it off with some peach cobbler and a family movie night!
