I've Got Chutzpah

What the heck is chutzpah? you ask...

Well, it is posting a picture twice, but I have my reasons.

I decided that it was time for me to participate in another blogger event, and this time I chose DMBLGIT. What that translates into is : Does My Blog Look Good In This, which is being hosted over at SpittoonExtra.

I say chutzpah as well, because this is a food photo thing and well, the mystery creature above hasn't been styled or tinted or manipulated in any way, except if you call peeling a pomello manipulation. But personally, I thought it was a really sexy photo - au naturel, you could say, and looking exceptionally edible in a weird squidgy sort of way.

In the meantime, I haven't been remiss about blogging - for some reason I couldn't access BloggerB at all yesterday and so I threw up my hands in frustration and went to bed at a reasonable time for a change (that has happened less and less since I started blogging, and I have a feeling that I might not be alone in this).

Tonight I was mudding. I now have an almost completed casserole - it just lacks handles, a very funky bowl, and the bottom half of a half-sized casserole that I think will be perfect for making The Bread - taller and narrower. Also perfect for making small stews for 4, baked potatoes, or to use as a tureen for soup.

I love playing with mud,
it was always my favourite childhood pastime.

I guess I haven't yet grown up yet!

Kind of unrelated to this specific post, just wanted to let you know that I've been following your blog for the past week and it looks scrumptious! Beautiful food photos. :)

Hey Idan,
Wow - you are giving me "cavod"? Thank YOU!

I just peeked at your blog - your pics are amazing and I really like what I have read so far...

You've piqued my interest and I shall peek at my leisure (judging from what I have seen so far, you have not yet reached the peak of your performance and I have much to look forward to... 8^)

Hey BB,
I'm trying to decide what kind of paintjob I am going to do on the pot - plain glaze - matte cream again, or should I paint something (I'm not the worlds best drawer, so mainly I stick to stripes - but I might do circles or something completely uncookerylike) But that is next week, I have lots of time to contemplate... 8^)
