Half Cookery

Every once in a while for the past several months, I have thought about making some foodie type posts.  So I have pulled out my camera, set up some shots of questionable greatness and began to document some of the things I've made.

And then, as in so many aspects of my life, I get caught up in the actual doing and dealing with children who have *gasp* needs, and I never take a shot of the completed dish.

Oh, there was one exception.  These oven-dried tomatoes?  They were just a fantastic snack that came from the dozens of late blooming tomatoes I grew.

Um, yes, there are quite a few less in the "done" picture.  Odd.  (My mouth is watering right now just thinking about them.)

This is about half the blueberries I scored at the farmer's market last month.  They have become a fabulous jam.

But where the heck is the finished product?  Well, I still have seven unlabeled jars in the cupboard.

This?  This is the start of a fabulous apple pear cranberry sauce that I made at Thanksgiving.

And this is the garlic I roasted for the Thanksgiving mashed potatoes.

I swear that I did finish making everything.  And more!  I am apparently not cut out to be a foodie blogger, though.

HA! Maybe I'll do this too. I have soooo many food photos, and mean to write long, detailed blog entry about food. And then I don't. Lame. Happy New Year, Shan. said...

Hi! Those all look awesome--I have an unhealthy relationship with garlic. Like, if garlic were a guy, there'd probably be a restraining order against me! I saw your comment on my blog and I had to think...I think we are in the same BBC birth club (april 08) and that's how I found your blog. Is it in your siggie? I've been checking more blogs out now that I have one myself, but I only follow the ones I really like. ;)

The boys wanted to know what happened to Tom's hair. Yes, I like food blogs

I think when I titled my blog, oh so many years ago, I destined myself to never type in a recipe :)

Those tomatoes... to die for. Wow!

And 'hi', I haven't been around in blogland forever.
