Still blue sky, white clouds, daytime temperature is around 70s, and… sunshine forever, this is our winter theme… down here in Florida. I absolutely love it, love it so much, I almost force all my friends (especially the ones who live in snow countries) to come to visit us, and enjoy our winter together.
This picture was taken at Lettuce Lake Park.
A few days before 2008 ended, Alan and I went to Disney Downtown again, there were lots of crowds… locals, visitors and shoppers, no sign of recession. Strangely, there were not many people in front of Plant Hollywood, an opportunity for picture taking!
Once upon a time, I was very much into TLC’s “Take home chef”, the blond, tall, young and good looking guy with cute Aussie accent attracted me sitting in front of TV for hours. This chef’s dishes were pretty, but some of them were quite complicated to make. The “Gourmet Burger” was one of those dishes requires some patience.
Then one day, I found a jar of black truffles in a store, I remembered it was one of the important ingredients in the blond guy’s dishes. So I got it and found the recipe and followed it step by step, made several burgers.
No surprises, the result was good. From then on, I made gourmet burgers quite a few times.
The recipe can be found on TLC’s site: America’s Greatest Gourmet Burger
It was extremely dark in the aquarium, two giant walrus were playing underwater under dim light. My camera couldn’t do auto focus at that low light, so I manually adjust the focus to a point near glass wall, and pop up my flash, waited patiently till one of the walrus got closer, I pressed the button, Peekaboo!.. I caught you!
