    Since the old thread was locked and Steve now has his own thread to post his myriad dishes, I thought it would be nice to see if we couldn't get back to posting like we used to do, and maybe get back some of the folks who used to post in that thread. Let's keep it simple and limit to one meal per post so folks can comment and share ideas like we used to do. After all, most of us only cook one meal per day. icon_lol.gif

    I've been really busy with work lately so I haven't done much cooking outside of subsistence meals. But recently I found a good deal on large heads of cabbage, so I've started to make homemade sauerkraut. Since I've never done this before, I started with one head of cabbage at 4.5#, which yielded three pints (Yes, the lids are loose! icon_lol.gif ). A few days later I picked up two more heads, and this time I put them in a one-gallon glazed crock. This crock has 7-1/2# of shredded cabbage in it, and my salt is at 2-1/2% of total weight. Now the waiting game begins, and I have to check them periodically to remove any stuff that accumulates on top of the liquid.

    Well, that's a brave move, the sauerkraut making! Your sauerkraut looks most attractive. Will it change colour? All the sauerkraut I've seen is sort of pale yellowish. Yours is a fresh green!

    About your suggestion for a thread like the old one:

    Do you mind if I change your subject line somewhat, to include "chat"? Just so folks know they can also simply talk about stuff if they feel like it?

    I hope Deb agrees with me. And since Steve posts reams of photos it is best that he posts separately, as he does now -- as lovely as his photos are, they do take up quite a lot of space! icon_wink.gif

    I think it also discouraged more timid members who might want to post a photo as an experiment.

    In this thread we can therefore also post a photo not necessarily related to food ...

    Please feel free to change the title to whatever would be most appropriate. I just felt it was time to get back to day-to-day type meals like we had done before, and hopefully get back some of the old gang to post their foods. Thanks for your support! icon_biggrin.gif

    As for the kraut, yes, it will change color (colour for those on the "other" side of the pond icon_lol.gif ) to become darker as it ages in the fermenting process. It's very bright when it's first made.

    Joe am dying to know how that Sauerkraut turns out. Are you planning on serving with the sausages you made a while back? All you need now is some rye bread and stout and you would have a great German feast.

    Steve, you're at a level much beyond the rest of us here, and now you have your personal thread to post dozens of meals at a time. I wouldn't classify that as being naughty. I don't believe it's a surprise to anyone that you dominated the old thread with your vast number of meals, and your wonderful publishing abilities as well. That's all great stuff, but I believe your exceptional talent overwhelmed many of the everyday cooks, and they ceased to post their day-to-day food offerings...except for me, who is not intimidated by the exceptional talent of others. I admire talent and it helps me to be better at cooking and many other things in life.

    That being said, you're welcome to post wherever you choose without feelings of guilt, but I would appreciate that if you post in this thread that you do it one meal per day, so that the other posters can have their 15 minutes of fame with their presentations.

    I hope you don't feel that I'm being snotty about this, but I'm just trying to get the old gang to begin participating again without feeling like they're being "one-upped" when you post 6, 8 or 10 meals at one time. Can you see where I'm coming from?

    In closing, I'll again say I admire and respect your talents, but you're in a class above the everyday cook. I believe there's room for everyone to share their talents, regardless at whatever level they are at right now, and this thread was started to get back into the everyday spirit of food presentation. Folks can still see your mega-posts in your thread, and feel comfortable about posting here.

    Peace!

    Joe

    Steve, you are not in the "naughty corner" at all !

    You are uniquely privileged to have a thread where you can post your food photos. Do keep in mind that not a single one was made from a recipe on this site: before Deb and I became hosts, that would never have been permitted!! Only photos from recipes on site were allowed.

    We love your highly accomplished photos -- I personally have no idea how you do those multiple photos -- but Joe is right when he said it was somewhat intimidating to photographers less sure of their efforts.

    So, let's just keep things pleasant and civil, and let's all enjoy what is posted by everyone in his corner!

    It would also be nice if people DID drop into this thread for a chat, to talk about their cameras, ask for advice, or whatever. At the moment the Zaar World Tour is on, and it's always a quiet time in the forums. ZWT takes up a lot of time although it is great fun taking part.

    So we're hoping to see more people posting their photos again, after ZWT. Some do -- Coogirl posted some great photos taken for "the tour".

    first of all...are we talking about the same Steve here ? icon_lol.gif

    secondly I did wink with my comment icon_smile.gif

    thirdly, thank you, you are all TOO kind....

    I know things have changed a lot on here, become more relaxed, more chatty, which is a good thing... but for a moment I'd like to hark back a few years... I was a new starter to food photography, my pictures were different from today. I looked at the pictures other people were posting and thought "I'm never going to be that good", but took in what people were doing, how they presented the food and asked a lot of questions about what they were doing. From this I knew it was time to upgrade my camera and think about how I was taking pictures, about lighting and even to how I put things on the plate when serving them. There is a joke making the rounds on facebook that I'm sure is meant to be me ! icon_lol.gif (see here - http://i.imgur.com/5RnU8eB.jpg )
    Now I know my photo's have improved, my setup works better and I have a better idea of what makes a good photo, but I don't think I'm in a league of my own, there are several people who post on here who take much better photos, some that do actually look proffesional, there are plenty of much better looking meals being shown and as people are buying new cameras and learning more, several of you are now stepping right up to the mark.

    I'm happy/honoured being in my own thread, just seems a bit like being elevated to king of the mountain when you were only a passing tourist... lol...

    ps... I'll let you into a little secret... I don't walk in, point the camera take a perfect picture and walk off again...

    this is pretty much standard for all my shots... take lots and lots... different angles, places, lighting etc.... and then look through them all on the pc to find the one/ones that I like the best..sometimes cropping edges off to make it a bit neater...

    Last evening I made a nice anniversary dinner for my bride of 41 years, and she was pleased with my offering. Pan seared pork chops, fried potatoes, steamed & buttered broccoli/zucchini medley and a nice salad. Not shown are her soft-center brownies from Sunday that we had for dessert.

    Great light on those photos, Joe. They're all so vivid -- great shots, appetizing food!! icon_biggrin.gif Congrats on the 41 years -- I'm ahead of you by a couple of years!

    I'm dropping in one of my flops. The sea was very rough after a gale force westerly, and I took about 20 photos, but in every single one the horizon was skew, and I just could not get that "wow" shot as the wave hit this rock. You have to be so quick on the trigger, and even setting it so it takes several shots at a time didn't work.

    (It was the wrong time of day -- midday -- but that is not my excuse!! I simply could not see properly on my camera screen in the sunlight! The fact that the top of the breaking wave was cut off was the fault of the operator ...)

    Steve did my family send this to you http://i.imgur.com/5RnU8eB.jpg ? No well they have often commented they felt that way icon_lol.gif

    Your array of pre post photos looks like mine as I have been known to take up to twenty photos before posting but then there are those days when I only take one or two and have to post the best of the not so good.



    Joe dinner looks good but that salad looks beyond yummy. I could make a whole meal just out of the salad yummy.gif

    Big congratulates to you and your wife on your anniversary! It takes a lot of work to make 41 years.



    Zurie beautiful photo!! I love when you all post photos of where you live icon_biggrin.gif

    Zurie, great shot of the roller slamming into the rocky shore. I live along the South shore of Lake Erie, one if the Great Lakes of the United States, and when we get storms from the North we get similar wave action with up to 10' seas (quite heavy for an inland lake). The big difference we have is you have beautiful blue seas, and with the mud bottom of our lake, the waves are a dirty brown as opposed to your white spray. While both are impressive for their power, yours has a special beauty with the white spray. I always enjoy the time I get to spend on the shores of any ocean I've visited around the world.
