My last blog post was entitled “Challenging” because as I sat and typed those words about my need to lose some weight I felt very challenged. I felt like there was no way I could regain the self control I once had. I felt I had no idea where to start. Well, today I feel […]
At first appearances shelling beans aren’t a very rewarding crop to grow. A 3 foot by 10 foot bed will yield only just barely enough beans for a single pot of soup. And as I am more and more interested in pursuing a more paleo or primal style of eating, beans are generally frowned upon because of their anti-nutrient, high carb, Neolithic status. But there is fun to be had and Penny and I were busy harvesting and shelling today and when it comes time to eat our beans we’ll be sure to soak and cook them well.
Every so often, a food-related youtube video is fit for the masses, but for some reason or other flies under the radar. Sometimes we catch them. Every time that happens, we share. Charlie McDonnell is a man of all trades, but making quirky cooking videos is clearly something the floppy-haired, British teen should do more of. The only thing disappointing about the video, is that there aren’t yet…
And there you are, right there on the crostini highway with me.
This is so easy and such
It perhaps shouldn’t be that surprising that Hungrier Jemma shares a love for food, and takes numerous photos of food at every opportune moment. I first realised this a few years ago, when I took her to the Nag’s Head in Chichester for a carvery. Man, that opened my eyes to just how Hungry she really is!
The above photo was taken by Hungrier Jemma’s fiance, Steven – who in fact, might as well be known as Hungry Steven also. It must have been a really odd sight for others in the restaurant to see Steven take a photo of us taking photos of our food!
We were at a pub restaurant called The Pigs in Norfolk (which, by the way, I thought was called ‘Porkys’ and got confused about why I couldn’t find it online just now).
Here’s the actual shot I took:
Man, those chips were collosal. Yes, you only get a few, and yes, both my sister and I thought it was a bit stingy. But of course, our greedy eyes didn’t comprehend that they are in actual fact the size of fat potato wedges really!
I love hanging out with my sister and her fiance because whatever we do, it always seems to centre around food (or dance films, but that’s another story). They had come to visit me in Chi for a couple of days, before I followed them back up to Norfolk – not in a stalkerish way, mind, I was invited to stay. For the most part of that long weekend, the word most uttered was ‘Beercan’ – as in trying to say ‘bacon’ like a Jamaican without making it sound like ‘beer can’.
So that’s pretty much how the whole weekend went, shouting ‘beercan’ and taking lots of photos. I’m no professional photographer by any means, but there must be some art form in finding Kodak moments that’ll get you smiling, right? 😉
