They say The way to a man’s heart is food. Well, it’s true! Been married 13 years and it still works. I’ll give you a recipe that’s so easy and so yummy, he’ll think you got it from a resturant. I love www.allrecipes.com.

1 (26oz.) can tomato soup
2 (14.5oz) cans Italian style tomatoes (blended up for smaller chunks, if you like)
1/2 cup water
1 cup milk
put in pot over medium heat.

stir in:
4 oz. crumbled blue cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbs. dried basil
1 tsp. onion powder

Simmer for 15-20 min., stir often.
Eat with bread. And enjoy.
I’d love to hear who tried it and what you think.

 

“Trash The Dress” / “Day After” / “Bridal” Portraits

December 2, 2011 | By | No Comments




“Trash The Dress” / “Day After” / “Bridal” Portraits. Whatever you call them, I think they’re a really good idea.

Often, when a bride or a couple want the very best portraits of themselves in their wedding finery, time is an issue. Finding two hours on the wedding day is difficult, and requires seeing one another before the ceremony. A good solution is a “Day After” portrait session – which is usually not done the day after, but several days or even a week or more after the actual wedding day. The obvious disadvantage is that you have to get all gussied up again. The advantages, though, are really big.

  • You can spend much more time on your wedding day being with family and friends
  • With less to worry about, you will be much less stressed on your wedding day
  • You don’t have to get ready so early
  • You can honor the tradition of not seeing one another before the ceremony, if that is important to you
  • You can be much more creative and flexible, visiting multiple locations and taking advantage of lighting equipment that is impractical on a wedding day. I’m referring to the studio-quality lighting that I used to create these photos out in the Nevada/California desert. I would never bring 3 powerful studio lights and their c-stands and batteries and softboxes etc on a wedding day. On a Day After portrait, I always bring such gear.
