That’s what I need to tell myself sometimes. I get so stressed out and the process of cooking can be so soothing. It’s easy to let cooking slide into the category of all the other things I hate about being a housewife (laundry, straightening up, doing the dishes, more laundry.) But then I remember that I actually like to cook. And I especially love cooking something that will be appreciated. There is nothing I can cook that will be appreciated by my young children, who would be happy to subsist entirely on happy meals and goldfish. So I mistakenly let cooking drift into the category of things I hate about being a housewife.
After the stress of getting 3 little kids out the door with their Valentines day crap, I realized I had neglected to eat breakfast and I made this. Fried polenta with a tomato basil brunoise, and feta scrambled eggs. And darn it was good.

These are were all taken at Inner Harbor East, the newly developed area of Baltimore that stretches from Fell’s Point to the Inner Harbor. It was my first foray into night time photography, so I think I have (a lot of) room for improvement. Some were taken with the iPhone and some with the Nikon D90. More and more I seem to be turning to my iPhone to take interesting pictures, even when I have the Nikon with me. There’s something so satisfying with being able to edit your pictures right after you take them. I used the snapseed app to do some immediate cropping and added some tiltshift effects on the iPhone pics.
This is a rhododendron from my backyard. The thing I love about these flowers is that when in bloom, they appear to be lit from within.
