Hi there darling readers!
Today I have been testing my new camera and here are the first pictures out! At the moment I don’t have a macro lens, so I’m shooting with canons EF 24-105 mm f/4L but I’m carving for the 50mm /1.2 F or 85mm/1.2 F that will be perfect for lifestyle photos! However, the camera works like a dream and has a certain extraordinary feeling to it. It is much heavier than my older one, but this also means it is more stable to work with … and I guess I’ll be getting a free bicep workout at the same time! I have a lot to learn with this canon 5D mark iii, but I feel this is going to be a great journey!
Home Made basil Dressing with Vegetables
Today I went to this antique/second-hand store with my mother and I bought these darling crystal glasses. I love the rough texture on them and they will merge beautifully with my other kitchen wear. I will be using these for both drinks and food especially for cold soups and smoothies during the summer.
Today’s salad builds from grated yellow turnips and carrots with a delicious fresh basil dressing on it. It has a fresh clean flavour to it that works well for any salad! To make the dressing you need to grind some salt, black pepper and lots of basil in a mortal and pestle and mix it with some greek yogurt and a teaspoon of good quality pesto. I guess you could do this in a blender as well, but I love to use the mortal and pestle when ever I can. This salty and fresh dressing works well with the crunchy raw vegetables! Yum!
That sounds fantastic, and the pictures are great.
Thank you so much! The dressing is quick and easy to make and delicious on almost any salad <3
