 Hello 2021 - I think.

Whether we like it or not isn't really an option, and whether things got better is all a matter of very strict personal opinion by many.  

But welcome back to my blog.   I have been busy  through December 2020 finishing up my photography degree at Sierra College.  I started with my first photography class in 2018 and pushed through graduation in two years with  my full time job and that included SUMMER classes.  And if you know about summer school, well you know what I am talking about.   Two classes - 6 units - 8 weeks.  And my Fall semester was two classes and independent study for 7 units.

When I was not studying or working in 2020, I was COOKing... boy oh boy was I ever. Over time I will share my food projects, dumplings, egg rolls, and homemade noodles.  I was already making sour dough bread 7 years pre pandemic so that was a no brainer for me.  But I did get interested in some fancier techniques etc. 

Well - I know I have always posted so many pictures of San Francisco, but I can not help it.  So here are a few captures from a quick visit, stroll and lunch last Sunday.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Photo Shoots from the Tiny Studio by Toni

In the late  part of stage two going toward stage 3 of Shelter in Place due to Covid19 - Almost June 2020.
We finally got to see the kiddos inside our home. It was a blissful almost three hours and slowly we trekked into the Tiny Studio, which had been closed up, so the white backing was all wrinkled and there was no prep for a photo shoot.   But it was better than No pictures.   We got to take end of School pictures for the girls and some fun family pictures.  Tiny Studio Lives on and is quite happy with good memories.

Delicious Monster omelette for two - Recipe

What I did:

One large potato - diced and seasoned and cooked in the air fryer at 400 for about 8 minutes.  (you could skillet fry them...and they's probably even yummier)

2 cups spinach chopped, one small red onion diced up.

I fried five slices of bacon and put to the side. Later chopped up.  I poured most of the grease out and then sautéed the onion and spinach and added chopped onion.  I set it to the side.

I whipped up 5-6 eggs and poured into the skillet and let cook.  I roll the pan around and  push the omelette to the side to get all the inside cooked.

I also roll it around high on the sides of the pan to give a nice crepe edge.  I added the spinach mixture and a layer of potatoes and about 1/4 cup cheese. I folded the omelette over and topped with a sprinkle of cheese and green onions.

I used onion powder, garlic powder and parsley on my potatoes in the air fryer with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

I use salt and pepper here and there.  It was a beautiful omelette for two. There was a little cup of left over potatoes for hubby and we didn't even finish it.

It is a great way to start the day with some spinach and onions...
