And when it is, we eat it every day or two until we’ve had enough, then we start giving some of it away. It’s also Spring and thunderstorm time and when one rolled thru about 3:30pm, it knocked out the power for 3 hours leaving me with no TV, computer, or outside work to do (too wet), so I went out on the porch swing with my camera book to see if I could move past the automatic functions.
While I was playing around I managed to get the hunting party of what I assume were seven Red-tailed Hawks against the storm clouds – I don’t have a long zoom.
Supper was grilled salmon, asparagus, and pineapple – I grilled the pork loin as it just needed to be cooked, but we could have had a poor man’s surf & turf had we been hungrier.
For breakfast the next morning, I sautéed a few asparagus spears and lightly nuked a piece of the pork to go with my eggs and English muffin. I added some garlic Tabasco to the pork and grated parmesan on the asparagus. I put the plate under the best light in the kitchen and took several shots with various manual camera settings – this was the best of the bunch.
Not great, but better than my normal washed out flash pictures - maybe there's hope for me yet..

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
