Kelly picked my recipe!

Kelly and her husband were looking for new/healthy recipes to try out.  Kelly got a pick, her husband got a pick and then they agreed on one together.  Well Kelly picked my Thai Basil Chicken in wonton cups!  She’ll be making the three recipes in the next couple weeks and if I win I get a copy of her cookbook. 😀

Breakfast was more pumpkin pancakes – except only two, so I felt I could have the two pieces of bacon!

Lunch was “lets see what I have in the fridge to put on a pita!”  I had leftover pork loin, so I cut that up, tossed it in Buffalo Wild Wings spicy garlic sauce and then added lettuce, baby spinach, cucumber and yellow and orange pepper.  This was so delicious, but messy, I ended up eating it with a knife and fork.

Want to see my photo studio at work?

just colored stock paper! 😀

And I defrosted bone in chicken breasts for dinner.  Now Hannah normally doesn’t eat meat that much, and she definitely doesn’t eat meat off the bone.  But guess what?  She liked it!  I used the same marinade for our pork chops earlier in the week: rosemary, sage, garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil and a splash of white wine.

Stats for Thursday:

  • 35 minute swim
  • 40 minute bike ride – 7 miles and 1 mile cool down

What kind of photography tricks do you have?  If you have a point and shoot camera (like me) do you dream of a DSLR?

Happy Friday!

  1. Congrats on winning Kelly’s contest!! 🙂

    I am now craving pancakes and bacon!! Good thing I haven’t made my breakfast yet!! 😉

  2. I have a DSLR, but even with an awesome camera, you still need photo tricks. My biggest one is natural light. My pictures ALWAYS look better in natural light. Also, just really knowing your camera is a big tip…it took me the better part of a year to know what lenses would work best on my camera in what conditions, and when I would want to use flash, etc. It’s continual learning…but I think my pictures have gotten better!

  3. Yeah, I would love to have a totally deluxe camera one day! And photography classes to go with it!

    Your lunch looked yummy!

  4. I love love all your food ideas and fun meals. Thank you .
    I was wondering when you exercise that much in a day do you add more calorie intake.
    I have been trying to figure this out myself.

    • I have no idea! I stopped putting my calories in caloriecount.com (but think I will again soon). I think I eat around 1500 calories a day, regardless of what exercises I do.

  5. Congratulations on winning!! I’m really hoping to get a DSLR someday 🙂

  6. fitandfortysomething

    i love that kelly picked your recipe!!! does not surprise me though 🙂 i have a point and shoot camera with no hopes of getting a fancier one anytime soon. hope you enjoy your weekend beth!

  7. Nice that she picked your recipe! I just checked out the competition and I would totally pick yours. I even have it bookmarked to make!

    So do you have a recipe for the pumpkin pancakes? I’ve seen them before but I just didn’t think seriously about it today until I saw some apple goo and I thought that the goo would be awesome over pumpkin pancakes.

    I don’t know a thing about cameras. I don’t even know what those initials mean! I would LIKE better pictures but have no clue how to do it and no time to learn. *sigh* One of these days…

    • If you go to the top and click on Index of Recipes, its under breakfast 😀 Let me know how you like the thai basil chicken when you make it!

  8. I know I’ve said this a million times but I love it when you grill. Always looks so perfect. And pumpkin pancakes? I may need to have breakfast for dinner tonight.

  9. Happy Friday, Biz! Hope you all enjoy a great weekend!

    What camera do you have, Biz? Your pictures always turn out looking great! (I use my cell phone, which is very convenient for blogging, but not always flattering to the food…)

    Oh, and great workout! 😀

  10. Yay for getting picked!

    I also dream of a fabulous camera one of these days! I am afraid if I do get one that I will be so overwhelmed and am going to need someone to teach me to use it!

  11. I dream of a light box, dslr, and talent…

    What a great tip

  12. Mmmm…. bacon! 🙂

    My biggest tip, if your camera can have a custom white balance, learn how to use it. By far the best thing I learned.

  13. the lunch on the pita looks yummy

  14. Very cool. Good luck, and I really hope she picks your recipe to win so you can get that cookbook.

  15. Love your photo studio – thanks for sharing your trick! My co-worker just got a Canon SLR (Rebel maybe?) and it is freaking awesome. I want one, but not at the price.

  16. We can’t wait to make it!!! Most likely they will be on the menu for Monday night of this coming week!!! 🙂 I will definitely link up and let you know!

  17. I liked seeing your photography studio in action! LOL! I do the same thing, but so far I only use a white or black poster board to set my dish on (or just the plain table or tablecloth). I know some people use wrapping paper, which gives a nice background. And yes, I would love love love a DSLR! I just saw Sophia got one and it renewed my camera lust! Mine cost less than $100 and just doesn’t give the quality I crave in a photo.
