We just purchased Ottolenghi’s Plenty and have been cooking out of it almost every night since we got back from Zanzibar.
I admit I do not cook middle eastern foods often enough (though it’s my favorite region of cuisine) and there was a bit of a learning curve. I’m just not that knowledgeable about how to properly season an eggplant or how much lemon zest to replace sumac with.
My favorite dish so far was the roasted aubergine with buttermilk sauce and pomegranate.
It tasted even more delicious the next day.
The winner of a pair of Leopard Kilty Minnetonka Moccasins is….
(fyi to pick the winner I used random.org- a great website that you should check out!)
Shawna, email me so we can arrange.
I’m loving the new video feature on Instagram- the only thing is I would like to make my videos better with a tripod or a steadying grip, (which are actually available! at photojojo). Here are some general pro tips for shooting better instagram videos (also courtesy of photojojo). I really enjoy watching the videos that people spend a bit of time and thought into shooting (this applies to pictures as well). No one wants to see your grainy under-lit dinner!! Putting some light and composition into your ‘grams and vids makes the internet and instagram feeds a more beautiful place.
What are your instagram video secrets?
Today Christopher Plummer is post-run in his favorite sun-blocking running hat. The fact that canines don’t sweat is wonderful because he can go directly from his run into the office- no shower needed. His colleagues are quite jealous that he gets to his desk an hour before everyone- he’s already made 3 million dollars by the time they walk in at 8 am sipping their mocha lattes! He has been training hard for a marathon. Christopher Plummer you are such a fit dog, we wish had your dedication and stamina.
