I have a weird hobby (seriously, I work at a comic book store, I know weird hobby when I see it). I photograph my food. Now I like to think I am not obsessive or freakish about my hobby but I am 99% sure it freaks my boyfriend out, especially now that I have new lights. Nothing special, just some ‘daylight’ fluorescent bulbs in these metal tin looking things but they sure do light up a room.
I’m not crazy, I swear, but the sun is setting way to early this time of year and getting lights was the only way I was going to be able to post any pictures that weren’t baked goods. So, now there are these two giant lights on our dining room table staring us down when I want to take pictures of food. Oh yeah, I know how to keep it classy. Someday, when I have an office this won’t go on at the kitchen table anymore and we can have company over again.
Luckily, I don’t photograph every meal ( haha, maybe someday I’ll be that good of a cook).
a la me
- 1 3lb venison round roast
- 1/2 teas salt
- 1/2 teas pepper
- 1 Cup liquid of your choice (I used a steakhouse marinade. Someone also suggested apple juice and had I thought it wouldn’t freak out the BF I would have used it)
- 1 Onion sliced
- 1 loaf of hearty bread
- Baby spinach
- Chipolte mayo, mayo, or steak sauce
Sprinkle roast evenly with salt and pepper. Place in a crock pot and add liquid. Cook on low 5 to 6 hours.
Remove roast from crockpot and let sit for at least 10 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat your sandwich press, grill pan or skillet and saute your onions (you can choose to leave the onions raw if you prefer).
Thinly slice the roast.
Slice bread in small sandwich sized portions and spread on your condiment of choice. Pile on spinach, onion, venison and cheese in which ever order strikes your fancy.
Place in your sandwich press and make sure to press and hold the lid down for at least 30 seconds.Let cook for 5 minutes until cheese is melted and bread is toasted. Serve and enjoy!
For any food bloggers / photographers who read this and think I’m calling you weird; please, don’t take it personally. I’m just poking a little fun at myself.
