Pleasent Surprise

Categories: General | April 29th, 2012 | by Assi | no comments

After a long while that I had no time to make a stew , I finally managed to “steal” a couple of hours and enjoy some cooking freedom in the kitchen.

I used all the usual ingredients some purchased on the normal super market (even the meat) and put them on a low flame for a slow cooking , added the spices and covered with water.
Then I looked at the kitchen to see if there is any thing that can add more flavour to the dish, and my eyes fell on the assortment of Cured meats I purchased in the French Market that was in Hemel about 6 weeks ago, I bought 6 pieces of differing fillings : Hazelnut, Chestnut, Duck , Calvados and other two, all the names are in French so since the time passed I did not remember which is which and did the “inny Meeny ” and selected one.

When we came to eat out dinner we were very pleasantly surprised – even the Little one was willing to eat form the sauce of the stew , and the mystery added meat – Chestnut .
I was already formally informed by the Mrs that what ever I do not eat today , I will not eat any more as she will finish it all !!!

Project 365 – Day 24

Categories: General, Project 365 | April 14th, 2012 | by Assi | no comments

Yesterday I went to one of the shops that gives my wife nightmares, and me the despair for not having the money to spend in it like a mad man .
The shop is Calumet in Drummond St near Euston London , I resisted the urge to buy the thing i want but not need at moment , and just got some Filters and a Potra-cube for later use for Maltgeeks among other things.

When I got home I took my Pooch for the evening Walk and shoot – Usually when I do my daily photographing and in one garden I saw this flowers :
I took the photo as i was amazed how the light from the sunset mixed with the street lamp above made the Yellow of the petal stand out so much.

Day 20 – out at Knebworth House

Categories: General, Project 365 | April 8th, 2012 | by Assi | no comments

Today , being the Easter Sunday we went to see a Jousting event in the Knebworth House (you can google it, if you want to know more about it ), it was a “classic” British weather , Cold , slight Drizzling and overcast all day long, in short Perfect for the sort of Middle ages atmosphere they were trying to create at the Jousting Arena.

We had a a nice time and while there I also made sure to take pictures ( both for fun and for my P365), So Day 20’s picture is from the Jousting :

The reflection from the council building in Hemel looked very nice with the contrast of the building it self , I was surprised at the depth of the colours on the building and the lack of colours in the reflection .
