Quinoa Salad July 7, 2013

Filed under: cooking — unevenlyinspired @ 7:37 pm

Just made it up today Quinoa Salad

Measurements are approximate, as I never actually measured any of the ingredients.

1C. Quinoa rinsed and then cooked in 2C. water. Cooled
1/2C. peeled and diced cucumber
1/2C. diced onion
1/2C. diced tomato
1/2C. diced carrot
3 cloves garlic, minced
handful of chopped parsley
1/3C. good olive oil
juice of 2 lemons
Mix ingredients, add salt and pepper to taste. Chill for an hour or so, and YUM. This tastes so incredibly fresh.

Baby Quilt February 3, 2013

What? Two posts in one day?! YEP! This morning my little cousin Alex delivered her beautiful baby girl Liliana MacLachlan. So incredibly happy for her and her husband! I made a quilt for the little baby girl and sent it Friday, but since I’m the worlds biggest procrastinator, it didn’t get there in time. (I only had 9 months…) It will be there Monday. At any rate. I thought I would post pictures.

Self portrait #5 + #6

Filed under: Photography,Self Portrait — unevenlyinspired @ 3:46 am

I accidentally missed doing a self portrait last week. I obviously wasn’t paying attention. I decided to try for a duel personality type session. One how I may look just lounging around the house, and the other, how I may look all dressed up and ready to go. So, here we go.

I recently got a remote for my Digital SLR. In this photo I was playing around just trying to make it work.




Self portrait #3 January 16, 2013

So I was tired, and I didn’t have a camera handy at the time, so I used my iPod touch. But I am still determined to post a self portrait every week. this was done last Friday, but it took a while for me to post it.  3 down, 49 to go.

I like to call this “the amateur self portrait” Were you don’t try to be creative, and you don’t care.


Self portrait 2 January 5, 2013

Filed under: Darkroom,Photography,Self Portrait — unevenlyinspired @ 8:13 pm

As I may have posted in an earlier post, My Grandfather gave me a lot of his darkroom supplies. This morning I was processing some film in my basement darkroom. It’s not the nicest, or the cleanest darkroom out there, but it’s functional, and I have fun in it. I thought I would attempt a self portrait of me having fun in my darkroom. As I’ve also stated previously, I’m trying to do the 52 weeks of self portraits. This is #2.


Only 50 more to go.
