I love a gin and tonic.

I suspect it has a lot to do with my swing band days, but nevertheless…

I heard about this gin called Hendrick’s which had the aroma of cucumber. I had to try it.

In my search for it, I found an organic tonic water sweetened with agave syrup to compliment it.


burger daze

I’ve been photographing the burgers that Chef Traina’s been creating at the Liberty Market where I work. It’s been a great way to play with my new lens! I’ve been having a blast doing it, and I even was able to create my own burger which will be featured on August 26th. The original burger was supposed to be The Ostrich Burger, but apparently, it’s ostrich breeding season. Which means you can’t get ostrich meat. Weird, I know. Anyhow, mine will feature mushrooms, a demiglace, and a special cheese that’s a cross between a blue and a brie. Chef’s really excited.
