photography & food:: a challenge or two


A world-class photog I am not, but I really enjoying capturing my world.

I was visiting Lou’s Labyrinth on this post, and I snapped a screen shot to keep the list handy.  It looks like a fun challenge from the Idea Room, and a way to improve and expand my skills.  It’s also a good way to keep on track with photographing every day.  Sometimes the days get away from me and I realize it’s been way too long since I’ve had a camera in my hand.

I shared the list with a friend that likes photography as well,  and we are trying each day to exchange our snaps in texts.  Double fun, right?

  As you can see, I am using my iPhone camera and at this size they seem pretty grainy, but it’s an enjoyable exercise.

Another self-imposed challenge is to work harder at changing up the menu at home and trying at least 2 new dishes a week from cookbooks or my pinterest recipe board.

This week we had a delicious chicken salsa dip.

In a crockpot on low for 6 hours or so: 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken, 1 can corn, 1 jar salsa, 1 can black beans, and a brick of cream cheese.  Shred the chicken with 2 forks before serving with tortilla chips and a salad.

This one was a keeper 🙂
