I Am A Camera

I just recently availed myself of a new phone. It is lovely and inexpensive, a mere £20, yet it has a camera and MP3 player on it. So in addition to creating ringtones for it, I have been taking some pix. Today I made some lovely brownies, and a shepherd's pie that looked so good I took a picture of them before they were tucked into.
First, the brownies.

These are brownies made from an Alton Brown recipe. Yes, he of the Good Eats fame. I adapted it and added some touches of mine own, such as the addition of 2 tablespoons of espresso and both milk and white chocolate chips on top. Lovely, dark, dense and slightly fudgy with an espresso twist.

Now, the shepherd's pie. I suppose it's not really a shepherd's pie, more a cottage pie because it's made with beef, not lamb, but no matter. It looked awesome and tasted great.

I also took a picture of my plate, after polishing it off, alongside my beer (Brahma beer, a Brazilian brew, £2.49 for 4 at Tesco).

This morning I took a pic of my coffee. Why, I don't know, but I'm like a child with this thing. 44 years old and it's the first camera-phone I've ever had. It is too cool.

I also took a pic of the lovely Carol Kirkwood, who was forecasting the weather and looking mighty cute while doing it.

Then later, while in Waitrose, I noticed something I found slightly amusing. And of course, took a picture.

I am armed with a camera, and therefore dangerous, people. You have been warned.
