Still Life/Good Food

Beebee Mod is hosting a Still life week on her blog and also on Flickr. I thought it would be a good opportunity to take even more pictures of food. I'm still smarting about the Lamb Mince in a Tin Tv show obviously.

I'm going away for a chill out holiday starting Friday so my Still Life week will only last four days. That still gives me a lot of scope for eating and talking photos. I'm starting with one of my favourite meals, as mentioned in the last rant/post. The recipe is very very simple.

Cheese and Biscuits

Biscuits - digestives or crackers are good. As a good Scot, I generally favour oatcakes.
Cheese - soft, cheddary, blue whatever floats your cheeseboat.

Add cheese to biscuits. You may also want to include some fruit, a pear or an apple maybe. Pickle can be a good thing. I've added some almonds too.

Tomorrow - leftover pasta. In order to follow this slightly tricker recipe you must already have boiled too much pasta while making macaroni cheese the night before.

Nice still life !
I like your style of recipe...and yes it definitely has to be oatcakes.
Have a good trip :-)

Now I want oatcakes. Oatcakes and smokies and everything in your photo (which made me drool the minute it appeared).

That's the plan - I aim to be the temptation girl of easy food. Or is that the easy girl of temptation food, I never can tell :)
