Lamb Meatballs

Pita, Greens, Tomatoes, Chermoula

After processing a huge amount of Lime basil into a puree with olive oil, dinner needed to be quick (preferably tasty also).

Homemade lamb meatballs from the freezer, into a pan, quick sear, turned the temp down low. Lid on, simmered for about 10 minutes, hot through.

Whipped up a quick chermoula paste, roasted cumin, parsley/cilantro, smoked paprika, lemon juice and olive oil, finished off with a hearty dollop of chili paste. Fiery and delicious, perfect with lamb.

Add some vegetables (not just because it's healthy) also delicious. Done.

Nice. I've been using lamb in my meatballs. Lamb, beef and pork with garlic and herbs. Your pesto sounds real good I'm going to try it.

Henry 'The Warrior Cat'

Tough little guy, I've been following his story, he's a survivor. They had to amputate his leg but he's recovering nicely.

Henry's Story:

This little warrior cat is Henry. One day this tiny grey kitten was found at the side of a highway, severely injured after being struck by a vehicle and left abandoned. Kind souls brought him to an emergency veterinary clinic, where he was bandaged and put on IV. Because he was a stray, he was transferred to Edmonton Humane Society.

When Operations Supervisor Mariah took a look at his injuries and held his quiet body in her hands, she wondered whether this kitten was going to pull through. There was a gaping wound and exposed tendons on one of his skinny hind legs. One front leg was badly dislocated, and there was obvious head trauma. It was love at first sight, and Mariah decided to name him Henry.

The EHS veterinary team checked Henry and made him as comfortable as possible as he faced his critical recovery period. There was a definite possibility that Henry's injuries were too much for his tiny body to overcome.

The monies raised are being used to treat Henry and other shelter animals:

IT'S DAY SEVEN of REVEALS
from the 2015 - 15TH ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What you are about to experience 
over the course of the next 10 days is pretty awesome.
We play a game - 500 photographers and myself - a photography scavenger hunt.

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "WAX* album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(ONLY ONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the WAX album,
1 item seen in 200 different ways.

Harissa Lamb Burger

Spicy Hummus, Greens, Tomatoes, Haloumi, Toasted Bread

Bingo! I'll be making this one again, I'd even make the Harissa Lamb burger for company. Truly would be amazing on the BBQ (I'll get there).

Personally I prefer my hummus on the spicy side, adding lots of Aleppo chili. Hummus is so very wonderful and versatile, make it how you enjoy!

Haloumi turned out to be the perfect cheese to go with the burger, salty, a lovely crust when seared, gently soft but not overly runny.

I can remember ladybirds swarming when I was around 9/10 years old. It was a dreadful year for greenfly/blackfly and then millions of ladybirds suddenly appeared. Fences were covered in them, for example, and i mean covered - you couldn't see the fence. The previous year I think there was a population explosion of caterpillars - they had completely covered a lot of trees.

Not seen anything as bizarre as that in the 40+ years since.

Veggie Manakeesh

Zatar Deluxe

Zatar, Cucumbers, Olives, Tomatoes, Mint

It's warm here, being a lazy cook is sometimes completely worth it. Sunbake Pita is a temptation I couldn't resist tonight.

Porter Pork Belly

Berkshire Pork Belly, New Baby Potatoes, Sauteed Sage Carrots, Porter Onion Sauce

Brined Berkshire pork belly (chamomile, fresh sage, thyme) cooked on a bed of red onions and Payback Porter, low and slow. I took the braising liquid with the onions, pureed and strained, a tiny bit of honey, reduced. Boiled baby new potatoes, sauteed some heritage carrots in butter/olive oil, the last minute added some fresh sage. Rich and delicious!

The cooking bug hit last night.

Pork crackling is still my bane, I follow all the correct procedures and still it's a hit and miss. This won't stop me from continuing to try, more Berkshire pork belly in the freezer.

Introduction

Food is my first passion.

If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with them...the people who give you their food give you their heart - Cesar Chavez

Food is a basic hedonistic pleasure, a sensual instinct we all share and revel in. - Yotam Ottolenghi, Sami Tamimi, Jerusalem

He who controls the spice controls the universe.- Frank Herbert, Dune

It's not fair!! - Sarah, Labyrinth.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.  - Dr. Seuss 

Numerical Palindromes - it's a thing!!!
