The Monday menu!

I'm still figuring lighting and such things with my camera. Juniper tolerates my photo taking though.


I tried a recipe today for mushroom hot pot.

I followed the recipe for the most part. I never seem to follow a recipe completely though. I didn't add tomatoes, onions or garlic. And I added more crushed pepper. The recipe is fantastic though! Too much salt. That's my only complaint. And I forgot to buy fresh basil today. Darn!


I purchased this yellow Samsonite bag from Etsy to transport my camera. I used to just throw my point and shoot in my bag, but that's not going to happen now. I plan on sewing some padding in the bag to cushion the camera and lenses.


She's yellow.


Junie thought the bag was hers.


Such a cute little face!


That whisker always curls up. It's kind of adorable.


Bag kitten!


I made some lovely red rice to go with the mushroom hot pot.


Mushroom hot pot with red rice! This smelled like the food I buy at Araya's Vegetarian Thai in Seattle. If I had fresh basil...and less salt I think it would be spot on. The recipe called for star anise and I think that's what did the trick!


Eric made tofu stir fry with soy curls, broccoli and rice noodles tonight for supper! Nothing but magic in the kitchen tonight!

  1. Those photos are lovely! I especially love that first of Juniper peering out from the bag with big saucer eyes. Are you using the kit lens (18-55mm zoom) on the canon? I need to find a bag for mine but the one I want is sooooo expensive. Right now it’s in my Namaste knitting bag wrapped in a towel. :p

  2. I am just using the kit lens! It’s a decent lens, but I would like to try others sometime soon. I saw a bunch of cute camera bags on Some of them are expensive…but oh so cute!

  3. “Junie thought the bad was hers” bwahahhahah! Such a classic photo 🙂
