What Did You Eat - Tuesday 30th Sept?

I tried out a recipe for Warm Fig Salad - it had lightly grilled figs (intensified the flavour), added to a plate of parma ham, torn up mozzarella, watercress, harissa dressing and toasted hazelnuts. It was a wonderful combination of complimentary flavours and textures. I ate it with a crusty baguette spread with boursin.

(My first attempt at a photo here....think I need to edit it on photobucket rather than vivitar image manager)

What's on Tuesday's table? Sept 30/14

I had some more spaghetti squash with the last of the putanesca. I am going to make that again. It was really tasty and is great for a meatless diet. Later I am going to have a wrap with black beans, avocado, lettuce, peppers and whatever else I can find.

TB had some squash with a meat sauce I made up for him, and raw veggies on the side.

What's everyone else having?

Sounds very nice

Look for a macro setting on your camera - the icon is a small flower. It sets the focus to make close-ups more sharp.

We have leftover Thai takeout from lunch. DH got Drunken Noodles with chicken, and I got Pineapple Fried Rice with shrimp. There's also a little bowl of Hot and Sour Soup. Good stuff.

Yes I have that symbol on photobucket images. Unfortunately it would not activate/edit and I assumed it was because I already edited the photo on the vivitar image maker, i.e. could not edit twice (once on vivitar and again on photobucket)? Will just edit it on photobucket next time since I have got good results that way.

You should be able to edit an image as many times as you want and, unless the file is set to read-only, you can do it with different editors. But there's only so much an editor can do if a photo was blurry to begin with. Btw, I've been doing graphic design/image editing for over 20 years and have taught it in the past, although I use image editing software on my PC.
