A random find


Double exposure


Found a random photo that was taken by D, and yes, that's his finger in the middle of the shot. He used a cool double exposure feature which I would love to fiddle around with but it's not available in any of my digi cam.

Some of my friends do not understand why I am so crazy over Grey's Anatomy. If you follow the series, you will understand why. I love it because of the many life lessons taught, everything that happens in each episode ties back to the main lesson. And many times, it makes me want to cry or cry. I think that everyone should watch it.

Plus, the music is great. I love this song that was played in the last part of the ep. (Season 6, episode 12 - Second Chance)

I often find myself reflecting and thinking about my life and things after watchin a GA episode. I wished I had written down all the quotes from each episode. I could have compiled a book of learnings to reflect on.

In surgery, the healing process begins with a cut, an incision, the tearing of flesh. We have to damage the healthy flesh, in order to expose the unhealthy. It feels cruel. And against common sense. But it works. You risk exposure, for the sake of healing.. And when it's over, once the incision has been closed, you wait. You wait, and you hope that your patient will heal, and that you haven't in fact, just made everything worse.

What to do with cheese?

I enjoy cooking. However, it needs to be fuss free and the type where you do not need to follow closely to the recipe. I like versatile ingredients.

There was a huge leftover of shredded mixed cheese. Other than using it for pizza, I have been trying to think of ways to use it up.

Here's some -

The mixed grains that I got was rather bland tasting. It's definitely hearty and wholesome but tad difficult to stomach down. Mix in some cheese into the warm rice or heat it until the cheese melts. Then add in salsa. The result? It tastes like Mexican rice. I'm not sure if this will work with quinoa, but I'll try it out tonight.

Sliced cheese is often used in sandwiches. B.T was simply going to dump the shredded cheese in between the bread slices but I stopped him. I took two slices of wholemeal bread, spread them from edge to edge with Miracle Whip. Slapped a slice of honey baked ham onto one slice and seasoned with black pepper and mixed herbs. I added a heap of shredded cheese onto the other slice then popped both slices into the oven toaster to bake. Bake it until the cheese melts - not too long such that it becomes crispy or hard. It was so good, he asked for seconds :) I have to say, I make darn good sandwiches :P

I am thinking the shredded cheese will go well in a French Onion soup recipe. I'll find some time to make that, hopefully soon. Of course, this shredded cheese goes well into the many salads that we have on a weekly basis.

Meanwhile, any ideas on what else I can do with this leftover cheese?
