- I need to use my real camera instead of my iPhone camera.
- I have to be more comfortable taking photos of food dishes and with people. Often, when I go out to dinner, I don't want to draw attention to myself by photographing all of my food. I know that other bloggers have this issue when they first start out, but I need to get better about that. It won't happen overnight, but I think it could be a work in progress.
- I need a new camera. I also need to get a new laptop. Those things also will not happen overnight. Both of these things cost a lot of money.
Skewers of yearling beef, zucchini and Spanish onion with a saffron, sundried olive and roasted capsicum couscous
Yum. My friend Claire and I got the same dish, and we both could only finish one of our skewers. We should have shared, right? I'm not much of a red meat eater, but I'll have it every once in a while (living with Penny and Jamie, I eat it almost every night). I prefer chicken or a nice fish such as salmon over red meat, but I knew that I had to get Guacho's specialty. I would have preferred to have my meat a little more well done (I'm learning), but I still enjoyed it very much. I'd definitely order it again. If I had someone to share it with, that would be a bonus! The couscous was also great on the side, but Claire and I agreed that it was too salty. I make couscous all the time, but I never put salt in it. Oh well.
As for the boys, Al and his friend Duncan ordered steaks. They cleared everything on their plate, and they ate our second skewers. I guess the food was worth feeling violently full afterwards. Thank you to Guacho's and to Al's previous employers!
In other news, I hear that parts of the US (including Chicago) are facing some terrible blizzards. Queensland is also bracing for some wild weather. This time, it's a cyclone. How incredibly sad. As if Australia- Queensland especially -needs to be hit with any more storms.
Well, all of you stay safe! Don't go out if you don't have to.
Of course, if you need to get out of the bad weather, come to Adelaide! It's beautiful here.
