My Photo of the Day: Not Quite Caesar Salad.

KJE_3722

Mixed locally grown salad greens, tomatoes, homemade herbed sourdough croutons, pan-fried tempeh, and a creamy pumpkin seed dressing. I was craving a Caesar salad, but didn’t actually have the ingredients on hand. I got the idea for the pumpkin seed dressing here, though I used Herbamare instead of the Himalayan salt and incorporated good virgin olive oil to emulsify the dressing. It was a satisfying salad and it made my tastebuds happy.

My Photos of the Day: Autumn Polaroid Week!

Silver Frame

Flickr  used to be a place where I hung out and shared my photography a lot. I made plenty of friends on there, some I’ve met offline, but many of which are still my friends. I was constantly inspired, especially by the film photography groups.  Polaroid Week started in 2006, but I only began participating in 2008 when I got my first SX-70. Since then, I try to participate during each Polaroid Week. It’s not just all about photos taken with original Polaroid film (which stopped production of film in 2008)  or even Impossible Project Film , but a celebration of all instant film photography. It’s fun to see familiar and new faces in the group and there are so many great shots shared. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate to check it out from Oct 20-24!

Three Stages of Baby Lima Bean Soup.

Shelled and rinsed organic baby lima beans. I bought them at the West End Market and Bakery.

Sautéed Vidalia onion, filtered water, bay leaf, baby lima beans, fresh ham hocks, a couple of crushed garlic cloves. Right before it was done cooking, I added a little apple cider vinegar.

Delicious!

After simmering a few hours later, I seasoned with salt and pepper, and apple cider vinegar to taste. Delicious!
