Around 5PM today I decided this family had had a little too much computer / TV time. The Bears were on their third episode of The Berenstain Bears! So we all put on our tennis shoes and headed out for some exercise.
Matt put the bears in their jogging stroller and we conquered 6.5 miles all around town. It was a lovely day for a run – we even got to experience more raining sunshine! Or, sunshine rain!
Once home we had to get dinner in the oven FAST – the sun was setting.
And we missed him
BUT – guess what I discovered! Yesterday we had a new light installed in our kitchen. (Remember when we cooked in the dark for a week?) Since then it’s been lit only by a single bulb. The new fixture (which had to be ordered) holds THREE 100 watt bulbs. I went to pick some up today and….LET THEIR BE LIGHT!! You can’t even tell in this dark photo, but the kitchen is a’glow.
So I discovered that food photography in the new kitchen isn’t that bad!
We had chicken on the menu. Picked up a local whole chicken from The Organic Butcher here in town. [Note the temp!!]
We roasted him in pieces over a bed of brussels, sweet potato and parsnips.
The photography started out as this
And improved to the more vibrant (but still not sunlight) this:
I had a little light and a little dark meat over a pile of veggies, enhanced with a few pieces of cheese!
Back to the dining room!
The movie was cute, and it made me laugh out loud quite a few times. The main character, Jimmy, was pretty hilarious.
There’s Lynn! I can’t believe a movie star reads my blog! [Hi Lynn!]
Pretty sure you can watch it on Netflix Online too.
Speaking of films, check out the new Kodiak Cake film series and see them being cooked in action! They are taking reader requests for mixins to put in the ‘cakes. This one is with SPAM! I’m leaning more towards pumpkin and black beans myself
Time for bed little bears!
