February 12, 2015


Last night it was such a treat to get out for a catch-up over drinks with my dear friend Sabine. We usually go to this crazy big sports bar with games, LOL, which is so wrong for us but it was easy and always had a booth available. Luckily, we've found a new spot that still has lots of seating but a cozier vibe and microbrewery beers. I think we'll be back!


I've been trying to take more Selfie's recently, and although I don't often like pictures where I'm wearing my glasses I loved that the reflection of them with this picture allowed for a bit of an optical illusion of a repeating image. Fun!


Shannon, you inspired me to try and experiment with freezing whipping cream! You had mentioned you can freeze milk and so I tried it with whipping cream a while ago, since it was going to go bad. It worked in my rosé pasta sauce perfectly!

What a lovely selfie, Shannon! It's such a nice thing to have pictures of yourself.

Suzie, that looks so beautiful. I thought it was a delicate dessert of some kind, which I guess it is! How great that it worked in your sauce.

Inspiration everywhere!

Suzie Ridler said...

Sounds like a great place to hangout Jamie as long as it isn't too loud. Better than a karaoke place! Glad you got out and hung out with Sabine for a night.

Shannon, I really love the selfies you have been sharing and love the artsy reflecto glasses ones.

Thanks Jamie! Yup, even a touch freezer-burned it worked like a charm.

Suzie Ridler said...

I have a question, is the "I'm not a robot" necessary? Can I delete it? Those things drive me crazy!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

I don't know why or when that suddenly appeared, Suzie. Just now I tried changing a setting but it didn't seem to have any impact.

Suzie Ridler said...

That is so annoying! I don't see where you can delete it in the dashboard. Hm...

Shannon said...

That's is awesome news you found a new place to enjoy drinks Jamie! Sports Bars aren't quite what I imagine as first option go-to's for catching with friends, glad to hear the new spot is working out.

Wow that is so exciting that freezing whipped cream worked Suzie! I agree with Jamie that it looks like a dessert...oh... dessert,... now I'm thinking of dessert! I did used to freeze milk, and we can thank on of the guys that lived in the first place I moved into for that as he was the one who would do it.

I'm glad you both like the Selfie! I am having fun doing them, it's nice to see what I'm up to...even though..I already see it... Oh. But....Hmm. Brain hurts now.

I'll take a boo around on the robot thing. I mean seriously...if a robot had something to contribute s/he/they should be able to...

Shannon said...

The only way I could figure out to remove the robot prompt, is to do embedded comments.

But..... I often have problems leaving comment that way, so I'm reluctant to switch.

Apparently they are working on it as it's a known issue, but that was on a forum in December.

Suzie Ridler said...

Oh I didn't realize that was a new place, that's awesome Jamie!

That's awesome that you found out about freezing milk from the first place you moved into, I had no idea Shannon.

When I had a dynamic blog I didn't have the whole robot thing but now that my blog is more "normal" (the personal one) it's there too. I don't mind clicking it but when it's asking for verification, it gets annoying, LOL. Oh well!
