Dinner Tuesday 23rd of August

Beef stirfry with as many veggies as I can find! Maybe sweet and sour and plain rice.
I will attempt to post dinner pics tonight, wish me luck :(
Had some trouble downloading last night. Think I will have to change the image size.

Image size does seem to make a difference. I try to re-size them so that the largest measurement (length or width) is 600 pixels. That seems to work out. Also make sure the file size (MB) isn't too large. If it's a little over the limit the uploader/posting script seems to do fine in reducing it but if it's too far over I find I get an error. What image format are you using? Do you have an image conversion program that can change it from a large image format to a more compressed format? I find png's to be the best quality to file size ratio. Jpg isn't bad. Gif kinda sucks for anything more complex that clip art. Bmp is so extremely bloated, not compressed at all so definitely, if that's what you're using, try converting the image. I think most cameras use either jpg/jpeg or png format though so resizing the physical dimensions of the image will probably take care of it. If you need help shoot me a pm with as much info as you can about your images and I'll see if I can help figure something out.

Just because something has a duck bill doesn't mean it's a platypus. It might just be a duck.

Shopping later this morning, so dinner will depend on whatever I can find.

Chili con carne and corn bread. It's the kind of corn bread Uncle Bob calls corn cake or Northern corn bread but Iove the stuff.

Got pork chops thawing and will make either mac and cheese or au gratin potatoes depending on what else is going on. I have to go to the store since I'm out of milk and bread so will stop at the farmer's market and pick up some nice salad fixin's too.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

We are going out, and I don't have a clue where yet. I'll have to check in later.
