Maybe it's because we've hit that point of summer (and, yes, it is still summer!!!) where the harvest is finally picking up steam, and the children are getting messier than ever, their fingernails black, their hair disheveled.
Maybe it's because I've run out of B-complex vitamins and my brain is too fogged to see anything lovely or interesting to photograph.
Maybe it's because I like food and there seems to always be some around made special and exciting by knowing you've grow/raised it yourself. At any rate, I took a lot of food photos this week.
8/26- Guinea eggs, I've learned make an amazing hard-boiled egg.
The thick shell keeps it from overcooking and doesn't present the same peeling difficulties that a fresh hen egg does.
Exhibit A: I delegated pizza dough duties to a child who learned the importance of the length of kneading for gluten formation. As a result, we had something else for dinner and I had to bake the pizza after dinner. Except that I forgot all about it, remembered as I was falling asleep, and had to throw it together and bake it before I could go to bed.
Exhibit B: As I waited for the oven to preheat, I remembered I hadn't taken a photograph for the day. So hear you have it: unbaked cheese pizza.
Exhibit C: This is the first of three late night, "Oops. I forgot to shoot" shots.
my gathering apron was weighing me down and I was calling for reinforcement harvest baskets. I ended up bringing in 25 pounds of produce that I wasn't expecting. Yea!
8/29- no photo
8/30- Another late night home from work and the paddocks still need moved a photo still needed taken.
I made a little fair food, fried ice cream. Turns out I must be doing better than I thought at reducing our sugar consumption because, as tasty as it was, there were some upset tummy's going to bed that night.
