    Breakfast! 2018

    i ordered this cookbook after seeing some of your other photos of recipes you have made from it. It arrived yesterday. I think this is the third cookbook I have bought based on your photos. :-)

    I have a Canon 60D. It's pretty old--I think my husband gave it to me around 10 years ago. That's just the kit lens that came with it. I have a couple of other lenses but feel that this one is just fine for most things since I am just taking photos for fun. The camera is pretty heavy--to me, anyway-- and the specialized lenses just make it heavier. I store it on a tripod and usually leave it there for taking food photos.
  5. Reporting from further back in the plane 😉 I can say that the food in steerage continues to not be so good. Here is British Airways to London in "World Traveller Plus" (basically, premium economy). I ordered an Asian vegetarian meal. Behold... So on the left, well, I am not sure. It kind of tasted like falafel, but with curry sauce. To the right, okra and cauliflower curry. Naan and a random roll. Dessert was galub jamun. This meal was basically inedible with way too much salt but I was not hungry having eaten before getting on the plane so no big deal. On the way back, I switched to a lacto-ovo vegetarian meal out of consideration for the people around me who might not like curry scent. I did not think of that for the flight over. Here it is: This is the same vegetarian meal they offer in business class, though I am sure it is presented in a nicer way. It's supposed to be ricotta gnudi. Note the burned left side. I saved the calories and made an omelet when I got home 🙂

    @Ann_T I am glad Moe is recovering well. Your delicious food will help I am sure! Dinner tonight. Spiced tuna sashimi rice bowl with shrimp Legal Seafoods Terminal E Logan. Off to London for a long weekend. My husband goes regularly for work but never has time for sightseeing so I’m heading over with him before all the work stuff to see the sights. I’m not bringing my DSLR but if I manage to take any decent dinner shots with my phone I will post them.

    I not only think it is flavorless, I have issues with the texture. It always seems flaccid. I have tried it in many preparations and so far the only way I really enjoy it is ground up. I think it makes traditional chowder taste fishy, but the Thai soup idea is intriguing. I might try that next time. The share runs in eight week cycles and it is rare that we get pollock more than once as I think they know it is nobody’s favorite,

    Sunday, scallop rolls and fries while watching the football game Monday I tried a recipe that I got in an email from the New York Times for slow roasted spicy salmon in olive oil with a cucumber feta salad. The spices were crushed fennel and coriander seeds, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper. The recipe yielded very moist and tender salmon. I was less enthusiastic about the plating suggestion, which was to break the salmon up into big chunks and surround it with the cucumbers and feta. It would have looked nicer as one big piece. I'll probably use the oil poaching technique again though. Last night, Thai-flavored fish cakes (made with the dreaded pollock that my fish share sticks me with occasionally) with spicy cucumber salad and rice

There was a salad too, I swear! 🙂
