I’ve been doing a little dusting and cleaning around here. It’s only a figment of your imagination that I have not posted in over a week. Aside from my day job (which runs into a ‘half the night’ job), I have been trying to update some of my Thanksgiving posts. The pictures were poor quality and I was a embarrassed knowing that people have been looking at them, probably throwing up a little in their mouths because of the sad little pics associated with the recipes. I used to have another blog on which I posted all sorts of non-food things and a few related recipes as an aside to my normal posting. The photos were…not so good, the editing was heinous because I didn’t have a photo editing program and didn’t know what I was doing with Picasa, and mostly I didn’t know anything about photography. I still don’t know much of anything about photography, but I generally know a bad picture when I see one; which is more than I knew a few years ago. Yes, I still post some bad pics, but they are a good deal better than my former bad pics.
I actually used to have two little point and shoot cameras. One worked well outdoors and the other one worked well indoors. The little point and shoot camera for outdoors was a real gem. It took the most beautiful quality pictures. I had done something to mess up the indoor settings and couldn’t get things working at all. The point and shoot that I used indoors probably took a fairly good quality photo, however I didn’t have a clue as to how to edit the photos.
Whatever you do, don’t ask me for photo advice. I take hundreds of pics of a single food item, then pray that I get 2 or 3 good shots out of the bunch. I need some photography classes. Come to think of it, I have two photography geniuses who live right up the street from me and why I haven’t ever asked them for help, I’ll never know. It’s probably because I live in Terri World and life here is generally chaotic.
There are three updates on which I have been working, but only two of them are presented here in this post. The pics on the third one are still a bomb, so I’ll keep working on them. Please visit the two stuffings/dressings and consider them for your Thanksgiving meal. Despite having been raised on Cornbread Dressing, my favorite stuffing/dressing is Sourdough Artichoke Parmesan Stuffing by Leslie Jo Parsens. If you’d like to know the difference between stuffing and dressing, please visit this post.
