Didn't know I had it in me
Trying out my new external flash for the Nikon now that daylight is getting so much shorter again. Clearly I need more practice.
Tsia and I made our first mayonnaise tonight. We needed 2 T for fish tacos, and I don't keep it in the house because I never use mayo on anything. Just don't care for it. So we busted out our friend Julia and went for it; it turned out quite well if I do say so myself. An extravagantly thick, creamy-textured, yellow concoction completely unlike the so-called "miracle" stuff. For a little visual interest in our photo, I added the cilantro leaf and Tsia needed to put in her bit with the mint leaf.
The tacos were quite tasty as well. I recommend that you add half the Chipotle in Adobo Sauce that the recipe suggests, however: it's hot!
Tomorrow we start swimming lessons (for her that is), so I guess the whole back to school thing is starting at our house, too. Next year we'll be on the pre-school track, but for now we'll enjoy one last year of staying home.
