Look at these beautiful oats:
Ugh, they weren’t good! I hate it when that happens, don’t you? For some reason, this oatmeal just didn’t do it for me today. I used 1/3 cup oats, 1/2 cup soy milk, 1/4 cup water, 1/3 cup liquid egg whites, a few dried cherries, 1 T chia seeds and some almond butter. But….no good. The only thing I can think of was the fact that the egg whites have now been open in my fridge for about two weeks, when the back of the label says you must use them after one.
I ate about half and then called it quits. I’m not really in the mood to make anything else so I’ll probably just have a snack in awhile. Meh.
In other news, I finally decided on a lens!
Love, love, love, love, LOVE
I never would have thought to go with Tamron, but while at the camera shop here a few days ago I just fell in love with this guy. I shot around with both Canon and Tamron lenses and, in my opinion, this was the overall winner. It’s a 60mm macro, which means you can get up close and personal with your subject, but you can also use it to shoot lovely portrait shots. The best part though? And the part that sets this lens apart from its Canon cousin? The fact that this guy has a incredibly sexy 2.0 aperture, which provides for a very shallow and delicious depth of field. The lower the aperture, the more light is let into the camera….the Canon version of this lens is F/2.8, which is one stop SLOWER than the Tamron, resulting in a darker photo.
I actually got this lens used on Amazon. It was still in excellent condition, but was more than a hundred dollars cheaper. Plus, I got free two-day shipping. What what??!
Okay…need to go bring my blood pressure down now. Goodbye!
