I excuse myself because I'm a college student, and even if its a year later before I do, I will eventually post on here again. On the flipside, Thoughts has had many a post about various food ventures for this college undergrad, including breaded fish, grape pie, rice-noodle potstickers, pizza-dillas, and banana cinnamon buttermilk pancakes. I'm not saying they don't belong on that blog, but I do want to switch things up for a bit. WeberShots has been emptier not because I've given up photography altogether, but because it has taken a different role in my life as of late.
So I'm going to liven up my WeberShots blog a bit with another form of art: food photography. I'm not going for amazing here, I'm just indulging my tendency to be a foodie. Here are some food items I've failed to post for quite some time, even in my Thoughts. They won't include recipes at this point, but I wanted to share some photos.
Summer Desert: Blackberry, Peach, & Pecan Sweet-ToastI made this over the summer while I was staying with Sharon & Hugh. As the heading indicates, the recipe included blackberries, peaches, pecans, and, for a lack of better words, some sort of sweet toast they had in their freezer...

Saturday Breakfast: French Toast, Bacon, & MochaI believe I owe credit to Jesse for the Mocha. But the french toast and bacon? All me. I know its just french toast, but sometimes simplicity is satisfying!

Friends-Gathering Dessert: Egg-Nog Cheesecake, et. al.This year I made another Egg-Nog Cheesecake with Caramel Rum Sauce. I actually do have this recipe, and it is courtesy of Cast Sugar.

Best Dinner Ever: Homemade Pork PotstickersI can take NO credit for these whatsoever. I was invited to a friend's apartment on campus to join them in making and eating potstickers. How could I say no?

little pockets of heaven, kind of you to notice!
|Justin, the pan will not hurt you, I promise... oh, and thank you|
for doing the honors of cooking them up for us!
Last Night's Dinner: Make Your Own BurgersLast night I had Tony and Becca over for dinner. Paul was there, too, kind of like a welcome photo-bomber, but with dinner. I grilled burgers (ahem, thank you Clayton for letting me use your grill without asking...) and toasted some sourdough rolls, and you can see the results below.

thanks goes to Tony and Becca for eating with me!
