Photo friday #17 (microblogged…i am on a roll)
|March 15, 2013||Posted by ameliaps under photo Friday, photography, photos|
Has it really been months since my last “photo Friday”? Yes, almost half a year already. But i keep “collecting” these nuggets of my existence on my cell phone, saving them for later. I meant to share them earlier. Oh well. I am sure you did not miss them, did you?
Sometimes i feel like a voyeurist of my own life, watching little vignettes unfold in front of me as i snap tiny moments into my smartphone. I guess that is why they call them “smart”: they have figured out things about us that we have yet to see… these little devices that make our life more simple at times and yet far more complicated than it ever was. I look through the pictures saved on the phone when i have a slow minute… re-living life, like watching a movie.
Somewhere recently (i think it was the wall street journal) i read that the more moments we capture on a cell phone, the more vivid our memories will be. How do you think memory is affected by “snapping” pics? Is it enhanced or are we detracting from imagination? Would love to hear different perspectives…
So here are a few collages, all from my cell, put together in an app (picframe, in case you are interested). And this is all written and posted from my cell. I am loving micro-blogging!
And, of course, lots of foods
Love baby potatoes baked in salt and inegar. Whipping up a frittata with leftover pasta is the fastest lunch.
We ate tons of apples over the winter. Sunday mornings we bake apple popover, in a cast iron skillet. For thanksgiving, dessert was French apple tarts.
Oatmeal with pears and maple syrup. Crepes with meyer lemon juice and sugar
Veggie lunches. Quinoa salad. Lentil soup with kale and carrots.
Chinese night: bbq ribs, scallion pancakes, rice, sauteed bok choy
Breakfast date: farm egg baked in celery cream with evoo toast
Lots of fruit salads (macedonia, in Italian). We like our fruit cut in tiny pieces not jumbo chunks!
And in Paris i had the most amazing fois gras at Robuchon. Plus a salad i want to repeat with boiled potatoes, truffles and microgreens.
Whimsy weekends with bacon and eggs
The fall was orange: lots of butternut squash and satsumas
On Christmas eve, linguine con vongole/clams and struffoli (fried honey balls)
Slow roasted chicken and vegetables plus panettone with chocolate sauce. How can you go wrong?
Butternut squash gnocchi and chocolate mousse, for friends
Loved sitting outside next to the fire with more friends over cheese and chicken alla cacciatora
When its chilly we make chili…and skillet cornbread
And when we are under the weather we make my friend Nicole’s healing soup, with cabbage, onion, carrots, celery, ginger, garlic and chili pepper. It really works!
On Valentine day, i made earl grey and orange zest tea-shaped cookies for my honeys, all 3 of them
Gnocchi verdi: with spinach and potatoes
Happy Friday to everyone…until next time.
