It is over. My family threw a party… I took a picture, and that was it. Done. Finished. The End.

Here is the cake that my wife made to celebrate the occasion. My daughter gave me 1 Smartie for every day and a note saying Dad, 365 days Smartier :)

Stick with me; I am pretty sure I’ll be back at it in a week :)

PS One confession I started this project on 2/15/2010 (Day 1) and finished on 2/21/2011 (Day 366). You do the math ;) because obviously I can’t.

I had very limited time on Valentines day for picture taking.  I had hoped to set something up with the V Chocolate that I had just bought.  My daughter was really excited about taking pictures of the candy she had gotten from school.  I didn’t really want to, but… well here’s her picture.

Did I mention I love bread and I LOOOOVE cheese. The two together how could that be any thing but awesome. Yeah, OK maybe I am overstating the value of simple cheesy bread, but I do love it. That explains the plumpness of my figure :D

I love the Superbowl, not for the game, not for the commercials, but for the food. This year I made baked chedderwaurst with sauerkraut. Holy yummy. I also made my favorite marinated shrimp salad. The battle today, while not the Packers vs. the Steelers is between my two pictures.

Which do you prefer.

Did you know that being a baker is one of the earliest known professions?  Probably, because making great bread is hard. While in Logan I was finally able to visit Crumb Brothers bakery. I have LOVED their bread since the first time I ever tried it.  Did you also know that bread and cheese we my favorite foods.  I don’t think that there is much better than a great piece of crusty bread, with something simple to go with it.

You would think after 39 years I would be used to disappointment. Nope, the Birthday was good, the food was excellent, and the Family was awesome, the pictures Meh. This was the burrito that I made it was incredible Honey-Lime Pulled pork for the filling and fresh-made pico-de-gallo etc. for toppings. I just was hoping for more with this picture. The pork is just too compacted and the focus I think was a little soft.

I love making food. Rarely do I use a recipe so every time is an adventure.  These are some of the things that I used on my last Chinese adventure Peanut Beef Ramen.

To be honest I struggle with this picture.  I hate it, then I will come back to it and the things I hate I kinda like and back and forth like this since I took the picture.  Some honest feedback on this picture would be greatly appreciated.  I would love to hear you suck and this is why.
