First of all, happy 100th post to me! Huzzah.
Although I've been more or less absent on here of late (busy taking care of my grandfather, for one thing...), I have been cooking quite a lot.
So here's my thought... I will try to post, more or less regularly, pictures of what tasty tidbits I've concocted in the kitchen. Ideally this will be a weekly occurrence, but frankly I'm not going to tie myself down to that just now.
The idea here is threefold: 1) It will get me to actually post something, even though I'm not currently working on a farm and unfortunately too busy to delve into researching sustainable agriculture-related issues; 2) It will help me practice taking attractive pictures of food; and 3) It will hopefully get me to care more about food presentation. Which, most of the time...... I don't.
So without further ado, here are the pictures for the week of January 30! (And maybe a couple from before that.)
|Roast Beef in Red Wine (Julia Child recipe)|
|White Bean, Potato, Carrot and Kale Soup|
|German Pancakes with Apples|
|Belgian-Braised Beef Stew (Julia Child recipe) (And yes, I know the picture is hideous. But it tasted great!)|
|Pear and Apple Tart with Walnut Crust (picture taken pre-cooking)|
|Clockwise from upper left: Roasted Cauliflower, Panzanella Salad (courtesy of my friend Steve), and Orcchiette Pasta with Sundried Tomato Pesto|
If anyone every has suggestions for how to make the pictures and/or the food look nicer, do share! I'm always striving to improve.
