I'm pouring butter down buildabelly's throat in an attempt to revive her, and in anticipation of her recovery, I sometimes take pictures of food.

I think it's funny when I occasionally see food blogs in which the food is prettier than me (not that that's saying much, I know- be quiet!), because my method of taking pictures of food for which I post recipes goes something like this.

"Mmmmm. Oh, this smells/looks/tastes so good! Everybody to the table, quickly!"
And then everyone comes, and I sometimes remember to take a picture, grabbing whatever dish/towel/cloth napkin is nearby to throw in the corner of the frame to "enhance" the picture.

I was reminded of my professional photography methodology when I loaded these pictures tonight.

A picture of chicken spiedies, taken to replace the pale and wan picture I posted a couple of years ago:

Snapshot #2.
Wait a minute...




Snapshot #3.




She actually came running in from the other room with a fork so that she could dig in. Semper peratus!

Ooh. This is a good one-- an exotic barbeque sauce that was so much better than the rubber chicken on which I basted it.

Snapshot #2.






And snapshot #3. Carpe diem!

Remember that time you thought I was dead and you poured butter down my throat in an attempt to revive me?

I am actually HUNGRY now. Guess that spiedie picture is good enough!)

That is all the commenting I have time for. But I do remember a dragon fly picture that was amazing and so many lovely flower pictures and so many lovely children. SO many comments I *could* make.

I hope you enjoy your day!
