When it Rains it Pours

This is not going to be a depressing blog about how bad things have been lately. It’s actually how much rain we have gotten here. Okinawa does have a rainy season but in the 15 yrs I’ve been here I think this is the most. Streets were actually flooding and there has been a ton of thunder and lightning. So, you might wonder what I have been doing during this no beach going time? Well as usual cooking, baking and complaining about the rain.
Over the past few weeks I have been really working hard on my upcoming project. I really need to update a lot of my photos so I’ve been remaking a lot of my favorites and retaking photos. So without the sun, it has been next to impossible to take great photos. I’m an amateur, have a ultra cheap camera, and I believe in taking a photo of my food that will untouch, unedited, and when you make it at home you get something similar. There is nothing more frustrating to make a recipe from a magazine, thinking this will be beautiful for tonight’s party only to have it look like puke in a bowl. I often wondered how those magazines have such perfect looking food photos…say it with me now, “stock photos”. I feel so cheated and betrayed. So, just to let you know I never use stock photos and will always use photos of my own. So what you see is what you will get. Nice, right?
So here are my creations from last week: Update Acorn Squash Pudding and Healthy Cream of Mushroom Soup
