Food for thought.....

7 posts in this topic

My wife is into cooking (I'm lucky there!!!) and is always trying new things. She's also into photography and just started taking shots of some of the foods she cooks, mainly for her blog. Anyways....here are a few shots of some of the recent dishes. Any C&C is welcome! The pics look better with borders but she must have that programmed in her blog and not the actual pics.

Alright--I just gained ten pounds by looking at these. I think food traditionally is supposed to be difficult to photograph so that it looks palatable, isn't it? No problem with that here. The clarity is nice too.

Yummy!!These are very nice. My only critique would be to watch out for the background. In 1 and 2 the background is a little distracting. I especially like #2 but the door and other items in the background are distracting. Maybe instead of the wine bottles, try something that goes with caramel rolls, like maybe a cup of steaming coffee. The wine bottles would be great with a pasta dish or something like that.

She's doing great with both the cooking and the photography!!

Just got back from a nice weekend up north...fishing was a bit slow though.

Thanks for the C&C, I also felt the door in the background was distracting. I like the coffee idea....that would have been a better background for the rolls. Good info to pass along.

A couple of the recipes are on her blog, but most of not due to copyright. On the grill is one of a few pizza's we made using olive oil dough from a book called Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. If you guys like making home made pizza's this dough is excellent to use for it. It's soooooo much better than anything you can buy at the grocery store. Doing it on the grill like that gives it a nice crunch as well.

    • Thanks to Ufatz, I didn't have to make a wasted trip to my mailbox today...
    • YES, they DO shut down if not enough oxygen. Been dealing with that one for almost 15  years of teaching this. They DO NOT have a CO shutoff, that's what I'm trying to hammer into peoples heads. That's what all thermocouples do, shut the gas valve.  A thermocouple is a safety device for some gas appliances. One end of the thermocouple is heated by a pilot flame, and the other end is connected to a gas valve. As long as the pilot light stays lit, the thermocouple holds the gas valve open and lets gas flow to the main burner of the appliance. The sensor on the end of the thermocouple is heated by the flame of the pilot light. The heat generated is converted into micro volts of electricity. This Electricity is enough to open a tiny magnet in the gas valve, and allow the gas to flow. If the pilot light was to blow out, then the sensor on the Thermocouple cools, and then closes the gas valve to the burner. This ensures that when the pilot flame goes out, Gas cannot escape from the pilot. It is automatically shut down.  That's how it works....if there isn't enough O to support the pilot, you might as well hang it up. They've been petitioned to remove their "low oxygen shut off" from their labeling. Best they did was re-word it. 
    • I believe the v-fronts help, but there is always the vacuum on the flat back-end.  I have had both am always surprised by what I'd call the rear drag.
    • Do buddy heaters even have a low oxygen / CO shut off?  My understanding is they have a thermocouple that kills the gas flow if it's not lit, but it will burn as long as there is a pilot light and enough O2 for combustion, which is probably less O2 than what it would take to make you feel like dump.  And even if O2 levels are high, CO can still be off the chart.   Do people get a lot of alarms going off?  Seems like there is going to be CO in my porty just from the buddy heater going even if the conc is well below a danger level.  I figured those things were calibrated for use in places like your house which should be right at about 0ppm, unless it's right next to the furnace.   In a related story, my MIL was house sitting for a friend when the CO detector went off.  She opened some windows and went outside but started getting a headache, naseous, light headed, weak, dizzy, all sorts of symptoms.  Called 911.  Fire department rolled out, ambulance sent.... And the detector was alarming because the battery was almost dead.  CO levels were at 0ppm.    
    • I'll wait patiently on memorial day, veteran's day, the 4th of July, 9/11, Xmas, new years, labor day, or any of the other federally recognized holidays for you to throw up another post with no point.
    • Thinking about building a new Fish House.   Does a "V" Front really make that big of a difference in towing?   Campers aren't "V" front so just wondering. I think I could utilize space a lot better with a regular square front.
    • Did you ever weigh the house?
    • Thanks for the reminder.  The trash goes to the road tonight for tomorrow's pick up.  I'll drag it down the driveway on my way to the lake.    
    • Had to bring the wife back last night anyway but a 3 day run woulda been nice.  I got to play with and feed our granddaughter, get ice gear thawed out and recharge batteries, making lunch and gonna head out for the evening bite.   I have a dream!
    • Thanks Rebelss. You just can't emphasize the importance of a C/O alarm especially with the new fish  houses being built so tight. My service man just ran into a B/O furnace on a no heat after hours call.  Home owner was very lucky and of course no alarm.
