Who’s at the door?

A few years back Japanese girls were committing suicide because hidden video cameras could see right into their very bathrooms. Tracking through our electronic devices and public video makes it easy to follow many people who are simply unsuspecting consumers going about their activities. The data is there. Many people have access though not necessarily our government or the FBI. The data reveals who was at the trump rally and who went to the Capitol and who went in. The data was extracted involuntarily. If you committed no crime, you are safe. And if you did, see ya. They can really do this! It’s good to have a pristine conscience.

Food photography is not my forte. Far from it, I have read about food stylists who add shine and steam. Often lard will stand in for… not all is real in food imaging. Alas – it’s my new favorite word – some things need help… Leftover turkey makes great pot pie. Where’s the pot? Ha ha? I have to admit we adpated our own container. Pot pie for two, it’s not an easy to task to find the right vessel. We tried to be simple, not overboard, This is comfort food. I browned the mushrooms. Yeah, yeah, it’s not a component. Well, it is, in mine. Sauce – cheating? – yes we used – cream of chicken, no, cream of mushroom. In the end it’s about what you like; there’s nothing set. And the grocery store frozen brand stuff has nothing on us. This was piping hot and as good to eat as it looked. Sorry, no steam effect.
