I Made Something Interesting

The other day, I was lamenting the fact that I'd missed posting for two days because nothing interesting had happened. Shannon, my oldest, said I should try to make something interesting happen.

She was right. The problem is, I couldn't think of an interesting thing to make happen.

Instead, I just made something interesting. In a Flickr interestingness kind of way. That is, an everyday thing I could photograph that would be cool because of the colors, and the angles, and the light (if I am lucky). Not to mention the fact, that not a lot of people would think to take pictures of...

... my lunch fixin's!

I was hungry. Short on time, too. So I decided to multi-task.

I am not mimicking the Pioneer Woman! Although I do enjoy her blog. And she does inspire me to take lots more pictures. I am not sharing my recipe, though. Just my ART.

The tomatoes were given to me by my Dad Tuesday night. They're home-grown. Store-bought tomatoes, even the vine-ripened ones, never look this red.

Seriously. Doesn't that look like a yummy tomato?

Nothing says "summer" like home-grown tomatoes. Except maybe corn on the cob. And steamed blue crabs. And snowballs. And frozen blue margaritas! And eating Dolle's caramel popcorn on the boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland...

Um, moving right along.

I realize letting you see the salt and pepper is dangerously close to divulging my recipe. But I think the close-up is cool. It is sooooo red and juicy. Can't you just taste it?

It was fabulous. Simple, but still fabulous. I forgot to mention I was having potato chips on the side, too. With a glass of ice-water to wash it all down.

Maybe something interesting will happen to me tomorrow...


  1. Thanks for making me hungry!! Now I have to pull myself away from work so I can go find something to eat. What a shame!!

  2. Who's that little kid lookin' at your lunch?

  3. Mike, I am truly at a loss for words. You always call me old. So certainly there must be SOMETHING you want. Hmmm. A new office chair perhaps?

  4. Sorry! I was wondering if that would happen to anyone.


Please say something...
