Photo Slots — A Top 5 list

Let me explain: I have 3,646 photos currently sitting cozy in my iPhone “Camera Roll.” The following are random photos I found by closing my eyes, sliding my finger along the screen, randomly stopping and touching a picture. I did it five times. Enjoy.

PHOTO 1: We moved into this house and soon thereafter, the wood of this window pane began to appear damp. It turned dark, and it wasn’t long before mushrooms---yeah, you read that right, mushrooms---started popping up through the cracks. Now, when life hands me lemons, I’m the type to make lemonade. Risotto anyone?

PHOTO 2: Just as I am a foodie-wannabe, I am also a mixologist-wannabe. Schmoe and I have sacrificed our time and livers over the years to perfect the cocktails we adore. This is our “Cate’s Favorite Margarita,” inspired by Rick Bayless’ traditional margarita at Topolobampo.

PHOTO 3: This year, Schmoe turned 41. What better way to celebrate than to hang out at Graham Elliot for a few hours indulging on the 5-course tasting menu. This was the dessert course---I think it was called the Mutha-Fuckin-Chocolate Bomb Bitch! (Not really). Unfortunately, I got sick (not because of GE’s food, I just happened to get sick about 15 minutes after we sat down) so I didn’t taste this. But Schmoe was happy to eat two servings of each course and dug this chocolate dish. Happy Birthday Baby!

PHOTO 4: Yeah, we’re at Chili’s! What? Joey can act like a complete a-hole and we don’t have to apologize for it. … And they have margaritas.

PHOTO 5: A master-chef in the making: This is called “French Toast Cubes in Diner Cup with Fallen Sausage Towers”

    Oh my gaaad that chocolate looks amazing. Did you notice all of these photos involve food or drink? (windowsill mushrooms totally count) We are like-minded people!

    Hmmm…I sense a these to your px. I like it. But it makes me hungry.

    The chocolate thing looks like a dog took a shit on the plate. I am sure it was good, I am just saying.

    On my IPOD Braden randomly makes videos today he said Mom, you called me Evan. I said no I did not and he said yes you did, see and hit play. First he is 4 second, I don’t know how to use the video camera and he does. Third, should he know about video evidence at this young age???? I am so screwed.

    Or said kid is looking at Mom and Dad who are telling him to quit playing with his food…his look says Mom, Dad, I will do whatever the fuck I want in public because I know you won’t beat me right here and right now…and I will do it all with a cute little smile on my face… Oh wait, that is what my kids do!

    Graham Elliot would NOT appreciate your critique of his chocolate presentation. Anyway, if dog shit tasted that good, I’d eat it!


  6. Jennifer says:

    I have no idea who Graham Elliot is, but I bet that Gordon Ramsey would agree with my interpretation of his presentation along with a few F-Bombs for effect!!!

    I agree on that Graham Elliot “shit”. At first I assumed this was some sludge in the basement.
