Green Food 177/365 So after I talked about it yesterday, I had to go and rewatch The Land Before Time. Such a classic piece of animation! I watched it over and over again when I was a child. Probably watched it until the VHS broke. It was only when I rewatched it for the first time in... probably 15 years, that I fully appreciated how much of the character movements and sounds were etched into my mind. But one thing I always knew, was how it shaped the way I eat broccoli forever. #judgeshootsfood365 #treesfordinner
Edible Trees 176/365 Ever watch The Land Before Time? "I can get my own green food!" 🐢 (Last week they announced dinosaur emoji for Unicode 10! Flippin' finally!!!) #judgeshootsfood365 #noyoufalled
Food for Thought 175/365 Having a light bulb moment. Or, well, an onion bulb, at least. One of my absolute favourite things in the world is having a good idea. Not just something novel, but something feasible. Not just the seed of a thought, but a fully formed concept. I suppose this is because I'm very susceptible to paralysis by indecision. If I can't clearly see which choice is the "right" choice, I find it very hard to move forward. So when a moment of clarity strikes, I like to seize it. The cost of indecision is often higher than the cost of the wrong decision. Mistakes can be learned from. And in the scheme of things, will the mistakes even matter at all? Or, in the words of Beckett, "Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better." #judgeshootsfood365 #sammyknowshisstuff (P.S., this is the first time in this whole project that I've had to use my mug! Ah well, had to happen eventually I suppose!)
Long(grain) Days, Short(grain) Nights 173/365 We've just passed the Summer Solstice. Peak summer. And so a touch of saffron to celebrate. Being so far North, I love how long our days get in June. Having the light to go for a walk at 11pm is something that I will always cherish. At the same time, though... having sunrise wake up the seagulls at 4:30 is less than ideal. Especially if that's the time I'm only just trying to get to sleep... #judgeshootsfood365 #ricericebaby
It's What's On The Inside... 172/365 Not pictured: Sugar Palm Oil Cocoa Solids Skim Milk Powder Reduced Minerals Whey Soy Lecithin Vanillin #judgeshootsfood365 #buthazelnutsarepretty
Cheery Oh! 171/365 Ever pour milk over your cereal in the morning, and think to yourself "oh dear, that's far too much milk, I'd better add more cereal"? And then add a little too much extra cereal and find yourself thinking "well now I just need to add a touch more milk..." Sometimes these things go too far... #judgeshootsfood365 #viciouscircle This shot was made possible thanks to assistance from the good people at: John Jack Boylan's Brain. If you want nifty ideas for photos, and help with styling them / someone to generally have craic with for an evening, just call John Jack Boylan's Brain. Oh, and tell him to get a goddamn twitter account at the very least, so that people can check him out if they want to!
Flaming Hot 170/365 Continuing on what is apparently A Song of Ice and Fire theme week... I'm not gonna lie, this was a lot of fun! I've always been a pyro, volunteering to make the fire in winter when I was a kid, testing out household cleaners to see which burned the best... I was never all that big into fireworks though. I wasn't one of those kids who went around blowing stuff up. I just loved the delicate power of a flame... #judgeshootsfood365 #burnthehousedown (P.S., Seriously impatient for the next season of GoT!)
Cool As A... 169/365 Today was a summer's day and a half! Had to make the most of the sun, because knowing Ireland it might not show it's face for another month! But a little too much sun has left me feeling a touch hot. Best cure for that is something cool. Something refreshing. Something... crunchy? Forget those ice creams, ice pops and iced drinks! Make waves on the beach this summer by walking around with a whole chilled cucumber. You'll be really... cool! 😝 #whpstandout #judgeshootsfood365 #sorrynotsorry
A Bit Corny 168/365 Everybody is a little different on the inside. Being a little different on the outside, can be harder to ignore. But when you no longer have the option to blend in... you may as well embrace standing out. #whpstandout #judgeshootsfood365
Only 35 Calories 167/365 Homer: Oh, Why did I have to start my diet on pork chop night? Marge: Now Homer, we’ve got steamed vegetables and rice cakes for you. Homer: Wait a minute. Well hey, I’ve been setting my drinks on these things! Marge: They’re only 35 calories apiece. Homer: Hello? Hello! Hello, taste? Where are you? Marge: You can put a little something on top for flavor. ... ... ... *microwave dings* Homer: Mmm. Only 35 calories. #judgeshootsfood365 #raisedbythesimpsons #whpstandout
A Tail of Two Halves 166/365 I got treated to lobster today, supplied by my sister and prepared by my uncle. I'm still reeling. It's incredible how much the shells change colour, from these rich blues to a perfect bright orange once they're cooked. This was my first time bisecting a live lobster. A sharp knife, a swift movement. Not one part of the lobster went to waste. The shells were used to produce an intense stock, the claws and leg meat became a stunning salad, and the tails... the tails were seared in garlic and butter before steaming atop a rich seafood pasta sauce. My uncle seriously knows his stuff, and just watching him work is a pleasure. Eating his work, is another level altogether... #judgeshootsfood365 #wastenotwantnot
Milk and Cookies 165/365 I'll just have a cookie before bed. Or maybe two... Pan di Stelle (Italian star cookies) are never meant to be eaten in moderation. And if I could wish upon these stars... I'd wish for even more cookies! #judgeshootsfood365 #whatsselfcontrol
Curvaceous 164/365 Baby got back. #judgeshootsfood365 #sexysilhouette
Colour Bias 163/365 Colour is so important to how I eat. I'll often straight up pick what food to put in a meal based solely on what colour it is, and whether I think it will complement the other ingredients. I get very sad if my food is monotone... #judgeshootsfood365 #foodsorganizedneatly
MilkShake (Am I Doing It Right?) 162/365 It most certainly did not bring all the boys to the yard. In fact, any person who may have been in said yard to begin with, left. 3/10, would not shake again. #judgeshootsfood365 #likeapolaroidpicture (P.S., I have so many regrets. So very many regrets...)
Ginger Ale (Am I Doing It Right?) 161/365 Let's leave them to get acquainted. #whpfriendship At first, I didn't think much of this homemade drink. For some reason it wasn't anything like what I've bought in the shops. But after three or four glasses (I somehow lost count), it started to taste significantly better! #judgeshootsfood365 #balancingflavours
Peanut, Butter & Jelly (Am I Doing It Right?) 160/365 Nothing goes together like PB&J. #whpfriendship If ever I'm in the mood for a midnight snack, I make one of these. It takes me right back to that American childhood I never had, but kinda absorbed by osmosis through Calvin and Hobbes. I think I got the general gist of it, anyway. I like to stand in the kitchen and think about all the other people in the world who are, at that exact same moment, standing in their kitchen and picking bits of peanut shell out of their mouth, too... #judgeshootsfood365 #sonder
Nut, Nut eile 159/365 This one is for my Irish speaking followers 😉 #judgeshootsfood365 #irishpun #waytoalienateyouraudience (P.S., It's crazy to think that the company that makes Nutella accounts for the use of a quarter of the entire global supply of hazelnuts! Can't say they don't put them to good use, though... omnomnom)
Refreshing 158/365 Nothing like a bit of bok choy to add some vitality to a stir fry. When shooting splash photography, it's always a good idea to make sure that you're not going to get any of your gear wet, by setting up a protected space before you start. I don't always have good ideas... #judgeshootsfood365 #itsonlywater #itllbegrandsure
