Creativity, Art, and Tacos

My photo response.  (Finally.)

The theme for this week’s photo challenge – hosted by the Daily Blog – was entitled “Create“, featuring the photographer’s definition of the word “create”, as well as a prompt for the reader to photograph something that objectified the word “create” for them.  Recently, I have not exactly been the paragon of creativity.  The only time I am “creative” anymore is when I create Excel spreadsheets, Word documents, and put together business orders.  So, for the purpose of this post, I had to be a bit inventive.

This image makes me want to create another taco…and another…and…

This is a taco, made from chorizo filling.  If you have never had the opportunity to try chorizo before, I would highly recommend that you do so.  Chorizo is a type of spicy sausage, and can be purchased at your local Mexican market.  No taco is complete without tomatoes, of which I made sure that my taco had plenty of.  I am a huge fan of avocados, so they – in addition to a dab of Crema Suprema – acted as the dish’s garnish.  My “creation” tasted delicious, and was filling while being aesthetically pleasing.  Perhaps this example of “creation” wasn’t as flashy or visually appealing as a picture or other work of art – but it was edible!
