I love Stew, but I don’t love carrots. Carrots make everything taste like carrots. So I decided to make a Stew my way. With canned Green Beans, canned Peas, and Niblets corn. And whenever a meal has to be fixed, shall we say…differently, my friends affectionately call it “Lori Ann Ramey…Salad, or Hotdog,” etc. So, I decided to name this Stew “Lori Ann Ramey Stew”. Not vanity, just traditional.
And, I didn’t have any potatoes, so I made some Minute Rice and whoa!…what a great combination.
If you know me, you know I am not a foodie. My very good friends are, however, which makes meal time fun. My foodie friend, Barb, is the co-creator of a great website called heygoodcookin.com. I am their photographer and I can assure you that all items photographed are real and always eaten after the photo shoot. Not only is Barb a foodie, she is also very frugal. Waste not want not. She also always makes sure I am taken care of at meal times. Which is why this photo shoot cracks me up. If you look closely at the bottom right hand corner of the picture you will see a plain hotdog under there. That one was for me. She didn’t think it would show up. Hah! A little yellow mustard is all I need on a hotdog! If you want the recipe for the fancy DaBu dog, please check out their site…www.heygoodcookin.com. Might just be a hit at your 4th of July party!
Who knew there was such a thing as burger month? You would think that I, of all people, would know this. I eat a hamburger at least 3 or 4 times a week. Mayo and pickles only please. I photographed a fancy hamburger for my friends’ website www.heygoodcookin.com. It’s a great new site where you can cook and make friends and learn how to cook smaller portions. They are redefining what it means to be single. So…if you want to learn how to make a fancy hamburger in honor of “Hamburger Month”, or for Memorial Day, check out the blog on their website. Either way… Happy Memorial Day and Happy Hamburger Month to you all…
