    Yup :-)


    Only one complaint though.......... the pics are too close.

    Or is that the latest style/way of doing food shots now?

    If we are not meant to eat animals,
    why are they made of meat?

    Sounds good to me! Plain old meatballs and spaghetti for us today.

    > Is that noodles in the salad??


    Yes, I mix ramen, pine nuts and slivered almonds. Toss with sesame oil
    and seasoned salt and toast in the oven or in a pan on the stove.

    That's typical of the shots I've seen lately, and I've seen a lot, but
    I suppose that it comes down to personal taste. :-)

    OK, you taught an old dog a new trick.

    You put the noodles (soft I take it) nuts and almonds, oil and salt on a
    tray and roast/toast....... then throw onto the green stuff? No other
    dressing?

    I always have a container of roasted pine nuts in the fridge, looks like
    I'll have to get another of roasted slivered almonds as well :-)

    I'm not saying your shots are bad, and neither are Koko's..... because God
    knows between about 4 of us, we're the only ones that actually contribute
    anything (photograhic) that is food related to this ng.

    I just like to look at the whole dish.......... with all elements in focus
    :-)

    To me, and this is just my opinion, the close up food shots are like taking
    a family snap of a birthday party ........ where all you see is a close up
    of someones nose, and some blurry figures in the background.

    I like to *see* the food,and I like others to see it.........

    No, I leave the Ramen uncooked. Trust me, it works...lol. And
    dressing of your choice.

    As soon as I buy a packet, I roast them in a dry frypan, cool them off and
    keep them in a sealed container in the fridge.
