There’s nothing original about tonight post and it isn’t really a recipe. It was tasty though. The meat ragu was leftover from my previous recipe Beef, Peppers and Leek Galette. Why not use it again and throw together a quick budget meal for tonight’s dinner and possibly tomorrow’s lunch. When I woke up this morning I thought about writing an ebook on amateur food photography and food styling. I’m sure there’s tons out there. Let’s add one more, why not. I have no clue how to put together one of those things but I’m sure there’s a bunch of editing tool out there. I have to do a little research I guess.
The reason I wanna put together this ebook is because I’ve been writing a post on food photography and food styling, but it’s getting long and beyond what anybody would have the patience to read on a blog post. That’s why I thought about an ebook format. I wanna have a free link on the blog and done. If anybody has any recommendations about apps and tools please leave a me comment. I have a mac, and that’s where I do all my blogging and photo editing, so it would have to be a tool that gets along with my setup.
I finally ate my dinner after snapping a few pics and spending some time plating this pasta. During this photo shoot I experienced some technical difficulties. My second pc sync cord died. It’s been 2 in less than a month. I don’t have a good explanation on how/why this happens. The hotshoe might be faulty…again… and for those who don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m just ranting about some flash photography gear. The PC cord is just a stupid cable that connects a flashgun to the camera and a hotshoe is a little thingy where you mount the flashgun on. This is where the pc cord connects to from the camera. And without this silly little setup, I’m pretty much hosed photography wise. I ordered my third one on amazon last night. This is the last one. It better works and works for a long time. I literally threw that hotshoe against the wall I was so pissed. It’s ok, it’s a little tiny harmless piece of mainly plastic. Nobody died.
Thanksgiving is approaching at the speed of light and I better have my gear in working condition before then or I will be throwing more than just a hotshoe against a wall! Probably the stuffing. I don’t care much for it. Never the turkey. I would never throw a turkey against a wall. Any wall. Even if I hate that wall. Good night.
P.S. Boil some water with some salt. Add some long pasta. Cook for 7 minutes or until almost al dente. Strain. Add sauce and pasta in the same pot. Cook over medium heat for a few minutes. Add a Tbsp or 2 of grated parmesan cheese. Plate and garnish with some fresh basil. My basil is on its way out. The winter will kill it. This is probably the last post featuring it. Enjoy!
