Why The Mister Is Fired From Taking Pictures of Me.

This post is dedicated to the return of the crazy bitch who I love so dearly, Miss Hippy Jersey Devil.  As Marlin said to Nemo (it's been a long week) You think you can do these things but you just can't, Nemo.  You can't walk away from your loyal followers so get your little fishy butt back in the ocean.  Let's pretend that made sense and move on.

I had a request - no, really - for more recipes on the blog and I was trying to be accommodating and take pictures, but I just went through my pics and honestly they're not that good.  See?

This was something called "Lentil Butter" which, confusingly, contained no butter.  It was a mix of beans and lentils that were soaked overnight, then mixed with carmelized onion, tomato, red curry, fresh ground ginger and s&p.  Very tasty, but not very pretty

This was the bread I made to go with it.  I'm trying to get rid of as many funky materials as I can from my kitchen - plastic, teflon, etc.  and use my cast iron skillets exclusively.  This was a basic french bread recipe cooked in the skillet, and it was oh-my-god amazing

But again, picture is not great.  And yes my oven is honestly that in need of cleaning.
I was thinking it's time to switch up my profile picture so I looked through to see if there are any decent shots of me.  The problem is, the only one who takes pictures of me are the Mister, and this is what he comes up with :
Do you see me?

Now I'm all the way in the picture but unfortunately I also look pregnant.
No makeup on after staying up til midnight playing Santa
Everyone wants a picture of themself eating breakfast with no bra on, miright ladies?
Ok there was one.  I have to hand it to him.  I won't mention my shiny forehead.

Luckily he's got other things going for him.


  1. First of all, thanks for the shout out. Second of all, I think you are beautiful in all those pictures, but me being the asshole that I am I appreciate the sarcastic explanation of why each picture is unflattering to you.

  2. The lentil butter sounds oh so good and the french bread too! Do share. I laughed out loud at your post title. Love the pictures! My husband does the same shit. It's maddening! Have a good weekend!

  3. I suddenly have a lot of photos of me taken by grandchildren...that only a grandchild could love. I feel your pain.

  4. ugggh I get sooo annoyed at my mister for the same exact thing!! Drives me crazy that he can't take the time to take 2 extra seconds to make sure i'm at a half way decent angle!

  5. Yum on your lentil butter and fresh bread! I love the pictures and your hilarious comments. Honestly Lydia, you are so beautiful that I doubt you could even take a bad picture. And the photo with the Mister and the princesses...enchanting. Hugs sweetie!

    I tagged you but if you don't want to participate, just pretend you never got this part of my comment. ;-)

  6. Hilarious! And you're right... the lentil butter doesn't look so good but the ingredients sound delicious. Plus fresh iron-skillet bread? Heaven!

  7. This is such a funny post, I found you via Mina's blog, my hubby rarely takes a pic of me & unless I really do look like Godzilla never a flattering one either ;)

  8. This is very coincidental in that I have been bemoaning (in my head) the complete lack of descent pictures of me. MacGyver is a very good photographer, but it's like pulling teeth to get him behind the camera.

    Also, that picture of you where you say you look pregnant? I don't think you look pregnant at all. I think you look really beautiful (even though it's not a full face shot), and I love your boots.
