Washington DC

There is only one way to see the sights in Washington DC and that is by bicycle, we loaded up and headed to the National Mall.

At lunch time we rode into China Town just a few blocks away. Not bad, roast duck soup and fried noodle at the NEW BIG WONG…

She thinks i’m a chef…

You got to try this…Dutch Baby or German Pancakes …This puffy pastry kind of thing is usually for breakfast, although I made this at 3 in the afternoon. It is easy to make and so good, add fruit, jam, butter, syrup, smoked fish, just about anything you want, you can’t go wrong and it looks great on the table.

DutchBaby-3 DutchBaby-6 Ingredients: 4 eggs, 1cup of flour, tablespoon of sugar, 1 cup milk, dash of vanilla, cinnamon. Butter a cast iron skillet or a non-stick pan and bake at 450 degrees.

So my partner Ms. E thinks I’m some kind of super chef, little does she know I’m just winging it, yeah faking it, no professional education, so we won’t tell her about my shortcomings but i think it has wooed her to my dark side….

For some time now and without my knowledge, Ms. E has been taking pictures (Mobile phone pics) of the meals I/we have prepared and then she posts them on her FB page!!! Hmmm, Well bless her heart… here is a month’s worth of cooking…

A friend of mine is teaching me (High Dynamic Range) HDR photography. While he’s taking pictures of Trees and vistas i’d thought i take a picture of my 5-o-clock moment… 100mm Macro, 2 stops apart from center, merged together. Oh, Vodka tonic, lime, and a Caper berry…. So refreshing on a hot summer day…
