Some of you may have noticed I haven’t exactly been using my typical point and shoot camera lately.
For the past couple of weeks I have been toying with the idea of purchasing a new SLR and my Mom has been kind enough to let me borrow hers for as long as need be.
My Mom has a Canon EOS 20D SLR that she bought about 5 years ago. It may be a tad on the older side, but it still gets the job done.
It was fun to have the SLR in San Francisco and at the Food & Wine festival this past weekend. Playing with my Mom’s SLR has pretty much sold me on the fact that I need my own. I am currently crossing my fingers Santa has taken notice what a good girl I have been this year and hopes he leaves a shiny new Canon Rebel under the tree for me. 😉
In the mean time I have decided to spruce my Mom’s camera up a tad by ordering a new macro lens. The new lens will make the camera more effective for my needs of close ups for food.
Maddie was happy to pose as I tested the new lens out.
Maddie is the perfect model. She just stares at me and looks adorable!!
Me likes the new lens! I still have a lot to learn about how the lens works and how my Mom’ camera works. One day at at time
Dinner was also fun to photograph and very yummy to eat. 😉
First were the Zucchini Cakes.
- 1 grated zucchini
- 1/2 small onion, grated
- 1 T dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 3 T ground flax seed
- S & P
Combine all the ingredients and form three small patties. Fry the patties on the stove top in a little evoo and enjoy!
Next Yuca Fries
Cut a yucca in fry shapes and bake in the oven at 420 for 20 minutes with a little S&P.
Dipped in a little ketchup & Dijon Mustard combo. Yum!
Dessert was a VitaBrownie topped with Pure Decadent Coconut Milk Chocolate Ice Cream that I just got around to opening tonight even though they sent it to me in April. Oopss…
There’s a reason I hadn’t opened it – I am just not a fan of chocolate ice cream. Its to rich (thick?) or something to me. Derek the chocolate ice cream is all yours next time you’re here!!
This afternoon I also snacked on some Cashew Nut Clusters.
I’m a little disappointed these didn’t taste more like cashew. i have concluded that cashew are my favorite nut to eat on its own.
