Failing at food photography.
I intended to write a 'wot I ate for my tea this week' post with lots of pictures but I only remembered to take photos of three meals and they all turned out really orange. A combination of harsh electric light (unavoidable at teatime in winter) and too much beta-carotene rich food. You will have to use your imaginations.
~Roast sweet potatoes and carrots with feta and fried eggs was a success -at least it was with me.
~Falafel and harissa mayonnaise with carrot and orange salad stuffed inside a pitta was also good.
~Char sui-ish pork tenderloins slow roasted and served with noodles and stir-fried veg was a hit.
There must have been other meals but I'm blowed if I can remember what they were.
Failing at estimating how much seasonal winter veg my family will eat in a week.
While we have eaten sweet potatoes and plenty of carrots we have a back-log of parsnips, beetroot and kale. Kale? Why did I buy it? I am the only one who will eat it and I wouldn't bother if it wasn't so damn good for me. I foresee a week of kale soup lunches when what I would really like is a week of cheese and butter filled jacket potatoes.
Failing at not baking.
I made scones. And ate some. And today I have made flapjacks but not eaten any.... yet.
Succeeding at learning the periodic table. Got to keep the brain working.
Slightly outraged to find that at least 30 elements have been added to it since I last studied it in 1982.
Succeeding in finding something interesting to photograph. This lichen was bright green when I picked it up from the path on Friday but it has dried out to this lovely gold (Gold -chemical symbol Au, atomic number 79).
