Look, ma, a video blog!



So that was obviously a bit outtake-style, but I decided to post it anyway. I'll get better. Perhaps not have a disembodied head when I'm frying things. The tomatoes turned out tasty, but man are they a pain. Next time I have green tomatoes, I'm stir frying, or maybe trying Deborah Madison's lasagne, but this batter thing is very much not happening. It's just so messy, and the oil gets disgusting. I ended up just saving the zucchini to stir fry. I might still do the blooming onion in spite of myself, though, because I really really want one. So here's the finished product, the next day - it looked much better straight away but I was too busy eating to photograph. Pictured with tomato/cucumber/ranch "salad" to compensate for the expense of buying actual salad greens.

Cool Judith. Fun to see you cooking in your apartment. I'm growing tomatoes and zucchini. Too bad we aren't close enough for you to get some from your ma's garden when they are ready. Love, Ma

Headless body cooking? It could be the new theme the Food Network is going for! Very nicely done, really.

Actually this video keeps your identity a bit of a mystery. In the first part you are backlit so you can't really see your face and the second part you have most of your head cut off. Incognito!

Mom - I know! I'd love to pick some; at least I know your tomatoes don't have salmonella.

Kat - Haha, I know, it's ridiculous. I like showing the viewer the food, though, and that's the only way I've found to do it without a camerawoman.

Lisa - Ooh, yeah, I could start a new personality. I just need some sunglasses.

Holler - Hehe, thanks! I'm posting another tonight or tomorrow :-)
