December 31st, Day 365, The End.

I made it!

365 days of shooting *something* everyday. I can’t say I would want to sell all those photos taken, but a few of them are worthy.

It’s going to be weird getting up tomorrow and not having to find something to photograph. Hmm. Maybe I’ll do it anyway, this isn’t something a person can go cold turkey on!

Happy New Year everybody. Thanks for sticking it out with me.

I made delicious soup tonight. I *may* have made a teensy bit too much, and will be taking it for lunch until Christmas.

As can be expected during the final week of November, in the USA, the following photos mainly consist of FOOD.

Happy Thanksgiving week!

Tuesday, November 26th

I got to cook my Romanesco Broccoli today. Unfortunately as I sat down to my snack I noticed lots and lots of little black boiled bug carcasses in amongst the swirls. Ah well. It looked pretty, anyway.

Yup. I made cookies today. Are we surprised?

Happy Thanksgiving! We had homemade cranberry sauce. So easy!

Surprisingly, I also went outside for a bit (though not for long! It’s COLD over in Spokane!), and found these very photogenic grasses.

I made mini Apple pies tonight. In Mason Jar lids. I learned the idea from this blog: Dessert for Two

With my chances of finding the perfect mushroom fading quickly, I’ve decided to start looking with another focus, abstract.

More mushrooms for you this week, though yesterday I was out hiking through the woods when it hit me. Mushrooms aren’t so easy to spot under this thick layer of fallen leaves. As the end fall nears (or has it already passed?), I don’t think there will be much more mushroom searches for me. I may have missed my chance to find the elusive fly agaric. *sigh*

Next year, mushroom, next year I’ll get you.

FINALLY, my Romanesco Broccoli is starting to grow actual crowns. Since I transplanted them into my community garden plot (from a pot behind our apartment) they’ve been growing like crazy, taking over the whole middle section of the garden. And finally I’m starting to see these! So very cool to have grown such an interesting plant from seed.

More photos as this one and others get bigger (and to pickable size).

Moments before my dog went bat-shit crazy at a horse trotting by, I was down in the dirt trying to take photos of this patch of mushrooms along the road. Seriously dude, what did that horse ever do to you??

Saturday, October 19th

I found several kinds of mushrooms growing near where we sometimes take Toby (now, I know what you’re thinking, but no dogs are allowed in the area I found the mushrooms, so no connection to their prolific growth there)

This Crusty Bread recipe is one of the easiest I’ve come across, with tasty results!

oct 20 wmI’ve made it three times now, once following the recipe exactly, once with garlic, and once with whole wheat flour (and double the yeast!)
