Good Morning, we have a bit of snow today which seems almost quaint after the mild winter we have been having.
I picked up a half gallon of maple syrup from Somero Maple Farm here in New Ipswich. It is quiet in the evaporator room, but soon they will be in full operation. The conditions have to be just right for the sap to start flowing. The temperature has to be above freezing during the day and below freezing at night. Just a few more weeks to go.
When I was a kid I probably have been happy eating hot dogs, hamburgers and french fries every day. I never imagined that I would actually enjoy anything that was exotic as a raw oyster. Thankfully that all changed.
I was introduced to other sushi dishes by my friends who would host “make your own sushi” dinners. My attempts at California rolls were pathetic, never got the rolling part down.
Good morning, did you have your breakfast yet? Today’s photo theme is #FoodFriday. Food is a great subject for photography, besides sustaining our life it has wonderful colors, texture and shapes. I usually have my camera with me when I’m at a restaurant or market knowing that the food will be presented in a visually appealing way.
These photos were taken at a Whole Foods Market in Boston while shopping with my daughter.
In June of 2014, we traveled to Vancouver Island to visit family. At the reserve in Gold River I took this photo inside a smokehouse, curing salmon in the traditional manner with the smoke from elder wood. We had a great meal of partially smoked salmon with boiled potatoes.
This is a treat. On a regular basis our friends arrange a Sushi dinner for guests. They assemble some wonderful selection of Sushi. In this photo from left to right, California Roll, Tuna, Salmon and Smoked Eel. Originally this was a “make your own Sushi ” event but my own efforts were pathetic. I’d much rather eat the creations of my more talented friends.
Usually we have oysters as an appetizers. Life is good. I’ve picked this photo for the photo theme #FoodFriday.
Good morning and Happy Friday the 13th. Yikes more snow this weekend and more next week. We’ll have this stuff in August. However there is some good news, an upcoming event that will only happen once in your life. In thirty days it will be the best Pi Day ever. Mark it on your calendar and celebrate on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 (perhaps with some pie?). And now some theme photos.
Gasplant (Dictamnus alba) This photo was taken in 2004 Sadly this plant died several years ago. It was so much fun to put a match to the seed pods and watch it burst into a citrus smelling ball of flames
