Since the loss of my beloved camera, I’ve been holding on to Tina’s advice that the best camera you have is the one you have on you, and doing what I can with what I DO have- in this case my blackberry, to capture moments in my day to day life and special occasions.
A few scenes of the food and drink nature I’ve managed to capture as of late:
Finally celebrated summer with some Sam Adam’s Cherry Wheat that Nicholas picked up. Unfortunately, I was not in the mood for drinking, and only enjoyed about half a bottle before handing it off to our buddy Kirk to finish. Still, though – this beer tastes like the sweetness that is a warm summer evening surrounded by friends.
Getting spicy in the kitchen! Soon I’ll be presenting you with recipes I’ve created lately using only blackberry photos. I know you are excited.
Breakfast [almond milk French toast and a scrambled egg, real maple syrup, and a pot of black tea] at the kitchen table with Tina Fey to accompany me.
Bagels. I love bagels. Sometimes, we get bagels at work for breakfast, and all-times it is splendid. This is how much I love bagels: when I was a sophomore in college, Joseph bought me gift certificates for seven dozen bagels from Bagels Forever. Yes, I’m serious. That boy knows how to gift.
Recently snacked on carrot sticks and peanut butter while reading in my friend Kristine’s office. There was too much noise in the break room and I needed to find a refuge of peace and quite to crunch and such. She loved having me, I just know it.
Kitchen success!! Made Jess’s Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, with M&Ms replacing the chocolate chips. Also used light margarine instead of real butter. Please don’t tell her about that last part.
Dipped the most adorable, patriotic strawberries thanks to Anne P’s recent post.
Gifted a bowl of said strawberries, some white chocolate bark, and a jar of homemade Sweet Southwestern Apple Barbeque Sauce to my good friend Jason. [more details on the barbeque sauce coming
He returned the favor by making me this epic smoothie in a pimp glass. Pineapple, blackberry, and cherries with orange juice garnished with pineapple, strawberries and raspberries. It was like a bloody mary’s younger [non-alcoholic], sweeter [like woah] cousin. DELICIOUS!
Espresso. Straight. When did that start happening?
