Thick and thin

I liked the contrast between the thicker tree branch and the thin vine stems in this photo. Technically, the depth-of-field is a little off, but I don't think it's bad enough to ruin the shot.

I think the stems and the branch are dead. And there is some moss growing on the branch toward the bottom.

It's supposed to be a warm day today. Saturday was a bust. It stayed relatively chilly and I didn't grill hamburgers as planned. We cooked them on the stove instead. They were still delicious, though. Today we're planning "thingeritos," a friend's name for burritos made at home with whatever ingredients you have on hand. Ken slow-cooked some turkey legs, so that will be the meat. We also have some left-over lentils, so they will stand in for the beans. Millet will play the part of rice in today's production. And so on.

  1. I love the idea of "thingeritos". I assume there is no stand in for a tortilla though. I bet the meal will be good.

  3. "Thingeritos" is indeed a great name. It's a big improvement on some of my locutions, e.g. Garbage Soup. Somewhat better is "Refrigerator Soup" (same dish, but prepared for granddaughters), or, for the same soup but not blended smooth, "Thing-in-it Soup."

  6. In the end, we had thacos. I crisped up some corn tortillas as taco shells and we used the filling that way. Same concept, different execution, still tasty!
