Big Photo entry

Last week's theme in the Big Photo Challenge was "old".
The Big Photo Challenge
I recognise that this isn't the most artistic photograph, but sometimes this challenge is all about the story behind the photo...
The story goes that for as long as I can remember I have hated cooking. In fact "hate" probably isn't a strong enough word for how much I hate this chore. My lack of passion for cooking is a huge part of the reason why I'm so overweight. A few years ago when I lost a lot of weight I got some good habits going and I've been trying to get those back. My OLD habit was to spent Saturday morning cooking some meals which could be frozen or refrigerated and the put in the oven when I got home from work. I decided to do this today and made a shepherd's pie, chicken and vegetable pie and some chili beef. You know what I discovered? I discovered that it isn't that I dislike cooking at all, in fact I kind of enjoyed myself making a mess in the kitchen LOL. What I discovered was that I dislike cooking when I'm tired and achy after work! So I think the plan for the future needs to be cooking at the weekend, just like the OLD days.

I'm not entirely happy with the way the photo turned out - see the funny effect above the cooker, where the light reflects off the wall? I don't know what that is all about...any ideas?


  1. It's just shine - it happens in most photos, but can be super annoying! You can fix it with most any photo editing software - but photoshop works best!

  2. Great story though behind the picture.
