evening

In The Words of Julia Child…

“Cooking well doesn’t mean cooking fancy.”

Most people from all over the world know of Julia Child. I couldn’t agree more with this quote from her, these last couple of months I’ve gotten into cooking quite a bit. I’m not doing anything fancy, but it’s good food and good for you! We decided to start eating better, no to less salt in all of our food and way more fresh fruits and veggies. Sense I’ve started working, I’ve really missed being in the kitchen, experimenting with different dishes and how to replace salt. On one of my days off I decided to spend most of it in the kitchen 🙂 Of course, I had Frank (my Canon) with me to show little glimpses of my day. I didn’t capture a lot, but it’s a glimpse and I’m hoping to start showing you more of my dishes the better I get at making them! 

We try to not have beans from the cans anymore, so this first shot are the beans before they go in a long boiling bath on the stove lol

This evening I made Roasted Chicken stuffed with garlic and lemons, so I just captured the garlic and lemon slices 🙂 I was wanting to take a shot of the chicken after it was finished cooking (it was so beautiful) but I had already cut it up by the time I thought of it 😦 I will try and show this dish completed someday soon!

Live Music and Good Wine

On my last post TWILIGHT WINE TASTING, we went to the beautiful Sweet Cheeks Winery for some Twilight Tastings. That night the talented Tara Stonecipher & Gregg Vollstedt were there playing their music. They are a local group here and I just loved her bluesy voice 🙂

Here are a few shots of Tara and Gregg and I had to try and get a wine glass shot as well 😉

Twilight Wine Tasting

William and I have been to Sweet Cheeks Winery a few times (Sweet Cheeks Winery and Not Another Wine Post!), each time there are different ways of photographing it’s beauty. We traveled to the “Twilight Tastings” and because it’s winter the sun sets a lot sooner than last time we were there. 

These first two shots was the view before we arrived there and the rest is the outdoor area. Because it was cold and dark, no one ventured outdoors, so I was able to walk around and take pictures anywhere I wanted!
