I spent the afternoon photographing the boys’ baby clothes. As much as I love taking their old things out every now and again to reminisce, they’d be of more use to a mom who needs them for her baby right now.
I’ll be keeping a few special things, like the the striped t-shirt that I dressed Max in so often as a toddler and Gus’s treasured lizard pajamas (he’d wear them every chance he got … day or night).
There are weeks when you wish eating a blizzard would cause a blizzard. This is one of those weeks.
Don’t ask me why, but during baseball season I usually end up shooting altogether too many backstops.
If only Rainman had had an iPhone, Instagram, and a blog.
Wow. I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted (about a month and a half)! And it’s been almost just as long since I’ve cooked or baked something from Around My French Table.
And I’m afraid I haven’t been shooting much lately, either. Jim, the boys, and I took a road trip to Florida in March to visit family, and I didn’t even shoot much while I was there. I’m feeling out of touch with my camera … like I’ve lost my groove.
As far as French Fridays are concerned, this salad was all it took to get inspired and get back to cooking out of that awesome book.
This salad is easy and delicious. All of the flavors and textures are wonderful. My choice of fruits and nuts were dried apricots, raisins, golden raisin, pepitas, sunflower nuts, and almonds. My herb of choice was cilantro, and its pop really rounded out the salad perfectly.
Now, off to get back in the photography groove.
It was nice to have an easy side dish this week. And let me tell you, these beans are as delicious as they are easy.
Bacon makes everything better.
