I would suggest creamy mashed potatoes and green beans. Perhaps some gravy. I am starving now and would love some hot lunch but all I have in my bag is a banana. Chicken chassaur for us tonight with boiled but not mashed taters.
Ohhhhh- LOVE your suggestions. Gonna go take care of the potatoes in a little while . . . and put green beans on. As you can imagine, we Southerners have to cook our green beans a looooooong time b/f we think they are "cooked down" properly, LOL! DH laughs at this. He says the secret to "cooking Southern" is to just cook the hell outta everything!!!!
I got one!! Be happy for Ani. She entered a beautiful photograph in a contest on the Photography/hobbies forum and is currently in FIRST place. Way to go Anifani......
OMGosh! Doorway - I missed this post! You guys!!! You found out about my secret life, LOL!!!!
Well - thank you all so much for the very kind comments! It so happened I had shot a photo at the beach that seemed to fit the contest, so I entered it.
Brian - I will have to look up my settings for that shot and post them. Photography is all trial and error and learning from other people's successes and failures. I still have a LOT to learn about this new camera. I was very intimidated by it at first. I used to shoot for newspaper and magazine "in another life" - and had not purchased a new camera since 1984 or 85. So I switched to digital and - whhoooo - learning curve!!!! But how neat to be able to shoot a lot and not waste film!!!
Thank you all for going and looking at it. That is an unretouched photo.
Thank you! It is really nice to get affirmations from others about my work! I always feel kinda shy about creative work - I always feel like there is so much talent out there . . . how could anything I do be that "special?" LOL!!!
