Okay, so yeah…new camera came around 7:00 (can you even BELIEVE it?!) and I’ve been fiddling around with it ever since. I know from an artsy-photographer standpoint, I’m not doing anything right because I’m still shooting like its a point and shoot and I’m using a lot of flash….but I’ll get the hang of it. I might just stay up all night reading the instruction manual and tomorrow be a total pro. You never know. This makes me want to travel around the world and just take photos of EVERYTHING!!!
So, naturally, I couldn’t take photos of anything I really ate today (besides dinner!) because of lack of camera. I’ll tell you what I did and ate though!
I did an online Yoga to the People class (class #5 always kicks my booty) and, for lunch, had a falafel sunshine burger in a pita with tomatoes, hummus and hot sauce. Snack was….yogurt with puffins and almond butter. 🙂
Dinner was truly something special.
I figured since I had to sit home and wait for the UPS man anyway (I had to SIGN for the camera!), I might as well make myself useful and do some cooking. I bought this use bag of russet potatoes the other day from the farm stand for a dollar (!) with the intent of creating a mushroom gnocchi recipe for next month’s Mushroom Channel recipe. It worked. Beautifully.
The gnocchi were actually super easy to make! Really! This recipe is from the Chez Panisse Vegetables cookbook (my new favorite) and I highly recommend it.
Then, I turned it into this:
I think it would make even Alice Waters proud. Really, really good. Unfortunately I can’t share the recipe since I have to send it off to my mushroom friends but I will let y’all know when it’s up and online…shouldn’t be too long!
Honestly, that’s all I have for now. I ate a windmill cookie and a piece of chocolate but was too busy trying to figure out the jpeg size on the camera to actually take a picture. I’ll be better tomorrow—promise! As for right now, I’m doing a mega load of laundry in Susan’s garage and am going to make some tea and read the instruction manual.
it’s getting COLD tonight!
