Check out @wineguyjames for wine & food! Reposted from @wineguyjames I was starting some #chicken for tonight & I realized I never finished my posting from the 13th! I had some samples of @sacredgin #Cardamom #Gin & #Coriander Gin left over from when I used to represent the brand a few years ago, and I used them as the base for a #marinade for some chicken thighs. Cooked them in the slow cooker all day, then pulled them out to crisp the skin at low temps in the oven and used the leftover juice to cook #saffronrice and #peas. Plated it up & poured a bottle of #Riesling I got from I don't even know where. Delish! For #dessert, I took some Mexican #cheese #poundcake slices, added some #coffeeliqueur, then some #Vanilla #icecream with a few spices, and some doctored up coffee (honestly don't remember what I put in it.) #bonapetit #chickenandrice #wineandfood #cooking
Stopped at the park by my house yesterday on the way home to hit the #pokemon gym there and saw this absolutely stunning #sunset between the trees. Always looking for more in game friends anywhere in the world to swap gifts, drop your trainer codes in the comments if you want to be buddies. #sky #nature #naturephotography #pokemongo
Haven't been getting a lot of photos shot during the p'demic but we've been taking the time to get a hell of a lot of yardwork done, including getting ride of dead trees and cutting up old wood for the #firepit. Got to give a shout out to @stihl @stihlusa this #chainsaw is GREAT. Yardwork's more fun with #powertools! To quote the great #tobehooper: The Saw is Family!
Follow up to yesterday's cocktail post. Check out @wineguyjames for wine, food, spirits, etc. Reposted from @wineguyjames As a follow up to yesterday's post about Sunday's rum & ice cream floats, I had leftover open #gingerbeer and decided to experiment, since I hadn't cooked for a bit. I used the ginger beer & #soysauce plus spices (feel free to ask if you want to know) to make a marinade for #porkchops, roasted them low & slow while doing yard work, and finished them under a broiler for crispy tops with some caramelization. Rendered the fat out beautifully, they were tender & juicy. We had the fire pit going to burn yard trash, and I banked the coals. Rubbed down 3 potatoes with butter (new trick I learned), rolled them in foil, and roasted them on the coals. Tossed in some French cut #greenbeans with butter & lemon, and finished the whole thing off with a beautiful bottle of @immortalis_wines #Albarino. Nice little meal! #food #foodandwine #spanishwine #bakedpotatoes #haricotvert #frenchcutgreenbeans #albariño #wineandfood
Cocktails with @ratravarman last night. Follow @wineguyjames for cool #wine & #spirits stuff, #craftbeer, recipes, etc. Cool food recipe with leftover ginger beer tomorrow. Reposted from @wineguyjames Haven't been posting Sunday #cocktails in a while due to quarantine, but since one of the folks who was a regular is now a roommate I'm still making them & thought I'd post last night's. I decided to make Dark 'n' Stormy floats. 1 shot @tikiloversrum Dark (it's over 100 proof so 1 oz if you want to take it easy) 2 scoops #vanillabean #icecream Fill with #gingerbeer Enjoy! They were DELICIOUS. #darknstormy #darkandstormy #cocktail #mixology #tikiloversrum #vanillaicecream #float
Surly #metalhead teenage me. @ratravarman & I are cleaning out the basement to reno it & I keep finding stuff like this in boxes. Circa 1986 or 87, age 16 or 17. #photographer #pictureofme #caughtsomewhereintime #ironmaiden
In today's digging thru the archives to find old sets to send models for their subscription sites we find a little #ropework in the #arbor with @queentriple6. Check her out, she's posting a lot of cool stuff. Models, if we've ever shot & you need content, give me.a shout! Sending out old stuff no charge to help out. @sydneyscreams @hennan.model and @thatchickfifi have all gotten pics that should be a up one of these days soon, and they have a lot of other great stuff on their OFs and P*reons. #shibari #snakebites #snakebitespiercing #rope #naturallight
A tease shot of @sydneyscreams from before she even had that name! First time we shot ages ago. Been taking advantage of quarantine time to go thru old sets and help out model friends with subscription sites by sending them content for throwback sets. Check them out & give them some support! In addition to Sydney I've sent content to @hennan.model, @queentriple6, and @thatchickfifi. Lots of great content! Models, if we've ever shot and you need pics give me a shout. #glamor #glamormodel #bikini #tattoo #tattoos #tattooedgirls #tattooedmodel #plussize #bbwlove #bbwmodel
Shot of @hennan.model (@hennamodel1 on Twitter) from a few years back. As I mentioned yesterday I've been taking more home time during the outbreak to go thru old stuff since I'm not shooting, AND to help out model friends who aren't working I'm sending unused images from old sets for them to use on their sub sites. This shot was done on #film with a vintage #yashicamat124g. The image wasn't deliberately #sepia toned. I was using old #mediumformatfilm stock and it discolored while developing. All #naturallight #windowlight. No editing except what was required to post here. #mediumformat #artmodeling #filmphotography Besides Henna, I've sent stuff to @sydneyscreams, @thatchickfifi, and @queentriple6. You should check them all out! Models, if we've shot & you need content, message me!
