Its so damn cold that all there is to do this weekend is eat.

 

A market one town over had a D'artagnan Pheasant at $11.50@!  Woof.

So,  sous vide pheasant breast (145F, 45 min) over mushroom ragu and tagliatelle, and warm sprouts slaw

I'd never had pheasant except in a terrine with liver and spices etc. This tasted like mild turkey breast. Nice

(The legs are being confited in rendered pheasant fat for some future meal)

Chicken in Black Nut curry (minus the black nuts!)  I love this non-coconut based curry, but my neighbors probably hate it as our apartment (and hallway) will smell like shrimp paste for the next week...

Pasta alla Gricia with Slivered Sugar Snap Peas from Six Seasons. Recipe available online here.

IMG_6737.thumb.jpg.dc29dda6175914a9efe222a4f8d8faf4.jpg

A bit of a nuisance to sliver the sugar snaps but they're just right with the spaghetti - both perfectly al dente!

Last night, from Supra, A feast of Georgian Cooking, by Tiko Tuskadze:  Chkmeruli (p130), poussin in garlic and walnut sauce (and bread to sop it up).  Tonight, after a particularly long and tired day, I needed comfort food:  ribeye, rare/medium rare, peas, mashed potato.  Method of Herve This, there is no better*.

 

No plans to stay up later than it takes to finish this glass of WhislePig.

 

 

*in my opinion.

Linguini with clam sauce. These were clams harvested by Stop & Shop, but I hope to be out there again soon, as soon as weather permits.

(( Previously there was a photo. But it was awful. So I quit - I think you can still see it below if you must )) 

 

I have read and reread the posts on food photography and I am close to giving up! I just don't have that Je ne sais quoi, that every one of you seems to have! I will not break the rules however, and will find an appropriate thread to ask advice on the purchase of a 'proper' camera before my towel is flung - because of course it is the tools and not the operator :D.

Tonight's unattractive meal can be partly blamed on my hub I have decided, for some weird, nay, perverse reason, he can only eat a runny yolk at Breakfast time- I don't get it either :S. So we have fried 'dead' egg, bacon spinach and mushroom side and a leftover oversized meatball from yesterday. Meatballs were a 50/50 pork and beef mix with some whiskey caramelised onion thrown in, stuffed with a (un) healthy amount of herbed goats cheese. 

I am not sure I would use the goats cheese again, while I like the fact it stands up to the heat and remains fairly solid and in place, I miss the 'ooey gooey' effect other cheeses would provide.

On the topic of food photography: Is it my lousy phone, you using a filter or is that meatball purple ?

You are in Cape Town. Sorry we could not bring you better weather today! I live 15 km NE from where the photograph was taken.

I made dinner for breakfast yesterday and wasn't hungry for dinner.

So I made Moe a small cheese "board".  Homemade baguette. 

That with a glass of wine and he was happy.

I use my android Note 4 smartphone and take a low angled shot. No flash. Then use microsoft picture to crop and occasionally fiddle with contrast.  I'd love to know what @Ann_T uses

Gfweb,  I retired my camera over three years ago when I traded in my iphone, which I never used for photos,  for a Samsung.  Galaxy S5.   It is almost four years old and I have been debating trading it in for a new model, but I love the camera on this phone so I think I will keep it until it no longer works.   

 

At this time of year when it is dark and dreary, I take most of my photos in the same spot where I have an LED desk lamp set up.  Once we have more day light I will take photos outside again.   I have a piece of granite set up on our deck that I take photos of our Boards on and I take food photos there too.
