30 Day Photo Challenge Part I

My husband and I both enjoy photography and we thought this would be something fun we could do together as a challenge.

I know most people play these challenges on Instagram, but neither of us have such accounts.

I looked over quite a few different lists for this kind of challenge. Beings we live in a limited community, I decided to choose a simple list first. We'll see how this goes and do more difficult ones later if we decide we like this!

We will both be doing our own sets of photographs. It will be interesting to see our different points of view.

This is the list we'll be working from. Starting July 1! His birthday. :)
Mine will have my watermark, his will have a "DS" monogram.

Raspberry Rays



Caught a glimpse of my raspberry plants this evening. The light was hitting them just right they were glowing!

Decided to take my camera (and a bowl) out.  I took a few shot of my pretty lil raspberries and a few other flowers around the yard.

Hope you enjoy!

Pineapple Coconut Chicken and Rice




This is a super simple, super easy recipe I've come up with.

I've been roasting whole chickens via my crockpot for the last month now. I'm always looking for yummy recipes to toss it in to.

My recipe was inspired by This one.  I read some of the comments and a few people said it was a lil lacking in flavor.  I tend to find a recipe and tweak it to my own liking anyways. This is what I came up with!

Ingredients:

1C Shredded Chkn
2C Cooked Rice
10oz Pineapple Chunks (I had 20 oz cans)
1/2 that cans juice
1/2C Milk
1 Green Onion
1/2 tsp Ginger
1 tsp Pink Salt (or whichever kind you prefer)
1 Cap-full Coconut Extract

Directions:

Since everything has already been cooked thoroughly, all you need to do is mix it all up in a sauce pan and heat till nice and hot! Simmering but not boiling.

Makes 2 big bowls full.


For the Pre Cooked Rice:  (there will be leftovers)

3-4 C Rice
1C Chkn Broth
1/2 Can of the Pineapple Juice

Simmer in a pot till all the liquid is absorbed.
Store extra in the fridge.

Enjoy!
