if a tree falls in the woods…

If a tree falls in the woods, and no one took a photo of it, did it really happen?  It’s been a thing on food forums for some time that if you talk about something you cooked but didn’t take photos, then it never really happened… Part of a bad attempt to get people to post photos of food.

Well, I’m one to take photos of almost anything I eat, any time, anywhere.  I try not to be obnoxious about it, but my wife has had to adjust to my constant photographing of food, just hoping dinner would still be warm by the time I gave the go-ahead.

Last night, though, I did something of which I’m proud… I made something new, and I took no photos of it!!!  Yea for me.  And, yes, it was very good: flat iron steak with a brown sugar/cayenne rub, seared in a cast iron skillet, with potato torte made of thinly sliced potatoes browned in layers in the oven, sliced and served.  It was really good, and I have no photos of it.  It was kind of nice to just have dinner and not worry about getting the right photo.

But to get my photo phix for the day, I did take a shot of my dessert.  I made my favorite chocolate chip cookies the day before, so I did what I call a deconstructed ice cream sandwich.  How do you deconstuct an ice cream sandwich?  Simple… Have a cookie with some ice cream.  That just doesn’t sound as glamorous, though.

About Curt McAdams

I guess I'm a bit of a foodie, learning to cook from my mom, then getting obsessed with outdoor cooking, competition barbecue, bread baking and just about all things food. Lately, I've been trying to upgrade my photography skills a bit, though I still have a long way to go.

  1. Ah, poo! I want to see a picture of the delicious steak and potatoes you described! But then again I just want everyone to be as hopelessly addicted as I am.

  2. Katie, I usually would have taken the photos, but I intentionally refrained.. I’m already obsessed enough! :)

    Very nice site, by the way.. and you’ve got some great photos on it!
