A pretty fair amount of submissions this week. I hope the momentum continues next week with a subject matter many people are less familiar with than FOOD. There is also, not one, but TWO first time contributors in this week’s submissions! Hopefully they feel inspired to keep submitting, even though this week’s theme will be harder. Hooray!
This week’s submissions:
Time to reveal next week’s theme. My clue earlier was that it was something that many people aren’t as familiar with as they are food. Of course, that doesn’t include anybody with in the sound of these words.
Next week’s theme!
WORK – /werk/ noun – Activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result.
Hopefully the enthusiasm for this project carries over!
Time for a quick housekeeping note from Photography 139’s Shameless Self-Promotion Division. We are pleased to announce that a new email subscriber has been added: Laura Miller of Manhattan, Kansas. I believe her to be the third person that resides in Kansas to subscribe to this here blog. If you see her out and about, give her the knowing glance AND feel free to teacher her the super-secret Photography 139 handshake. Welcome aboard Laura!
22 thoughts on “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 9 – FOOD”
1. Now I’m hungry.
2. I feel like the “secret handshake” is becoming less secret by the day.
3. I want proof from Shannon that her photo is from a currently open Okoboji Grill. 😉
1. Hopefully next week’s set of photos will make you want to toil.
2. Well, the secret handshake has become an issue for some people. Somebody has actually volunteered to design a secret handshake, so don’t be surprised if there is a video post of the secret handshake sometime soon.
3. I’ve told Shannon that you’ve called her out. I had a similar thought, but there are still Boji Grills that are open. You don’t want to crush a butterfly in your hands when they are just learning to fly.
1 – If anything can inspire, it will definitely be this exercise!
2 – Interesting, I will practice with Alice once it is live. So, I guess I’d also better get her subscribed to the blog. Reading three-syllable words will be a trick, but we’ll make it happen.
3 – Excellent. I hope to provoke Shan into future submissions just to make me look foolish. But, alas, she doesn’t realize that she’s the fool if she ate at Okoboji Grill with their new menu. 😛
I doubt there will be anywhere near as many participants next week for WORK, but it would be pretty sweet if there were. At this point, I don’t even have a plan for this week yet. That is kind of rare for me.
Alice has an email account?
Shannon had a plan for this week based on an email exchange we had, but the picture never came to fruition. I’m thinking of doing a take on her idea. One of those things that would be easier to do if the sun wasn’t already down when I get home from work.
Going to Kansas this weekend, so it might have to wait until Thanksgiving or more realistically, until Black Friday.
I have absolutely no ideas for “work,” either, so it should be interesting. Oh, well.
Hmm. Once upon a time I had set Alice up an email account so that I could send messages to it as she grows. But, as I’m already writing in a journal for each of the kids, that seemed a bit overkill, and I think it might have deactivated when I didn’t open it in forever. I should see if the username is still reserved.
I’m intrigued by this idea from both of you. Although, depending on where in Kansas you’re going, perhaps you could get some photos of rock-star barbecue.
Oh.. I don’t lack for ideas. I just don’t have a plan. Although it is kind of 50/50 on whether or not my plans come together each week.
A picture of Layla with her birthday cake wasn’t my plan until about Friday when I realized I didn’t have the time to pull off my original plan.
Probably won’t be experiencing any barbecue on my trip to Kansas, but I will be going to hog roast. Potentially with hundreds of date rapists. I meant fraternity guys. Where did I put my White Out.
I was at Okoboji Grill on SE 14th St in Des Moines. Actually, I thought about texting Angie while I was there because I was eating dipables with ranchup.
Shan, you can’t say those words to me while I’m hungry! 😉
So the Okoboji Grills that weren’t in Ames didn’t change their menus to the horrible sham of a menu that the Ames Okoboji Grill tried to foist upon the minds of man, before they failed horribly and were forced to shutter their doors?
Since you seem to know what Shannon is talking about, what doesn’t constitute a dip(p)able? I feel there is nothing that I couldn’t dip. Given the proper motivation.
Also, is a ranchup a colloquialism? Or even regional?
I agree – a dippable/dipable is probably a fairly generic term. I’ve always used it to describe the most commonly dipped items – fries, chips, bread. My finger, if I’ve got leftover sauce/dip and no dippable item left. I have, in context, dipped many other products, however – chicken fingers, pizza, many sandwiches. Grilled cheese is actually amazing in ranchup.
“Ranchup” is an Angieism. One day I discovered how amazing Boji fries (once upon a time, when they were good) and other fatter fries are when dipped in a combination of ranch and ketchup mixed together. I got tired of saying the long version of the combination, and just called it “ranchup.” It seemed less unseemly-sounding than “kranch.”
Ranch and catsup mixed together…
I just threw up in my mouth. Not just a little bit. A lot. Kranch seems way more fitting of a name for this ghoulish concoction.
There is a shame that goes with Kranch. Not saying that you and Shannon should be ashamed for enjoying Kranch. The heart wants what it wants. Sometimes it wants shame.
I’m working on a documentary about why the Ames B-Bop’s doesn’t have sweet & sour sauce for their nugs and I told some of my colleagues about kranch. We are going to include kranch in a scene. Not physically, because that is gross. But it will be mentioned.
Such scathing comments about ranchup/kranch. Have you ever tried it, Sam-I-Am? It admittedly looks a little like barf, but it tastes amazing.
I’ve never tried kranch. I’d try it (one time) if it was prepared by a “master” kranch “chef”.
I’d need a vomit bag and a gallon of water on standby.
I never would have thought I could be called a “master chef” of anything, but I’d probably qualify as a premiere kranchup (I’m taking it a step further). Maybe Shannon and I will have to take you to Dublin Bay sometime, they’ve got good kranchup fries.
I would be up for such a field trip.
I sort of thought you might. 🙂
I could be enticed, if Black & Tan Onion Rings are on the docket.
Let’s make it happen!
As a Lone Wolf, I have most nights free.
Except for Tuesday nights and Friday nights. I also have a Sunday basketball league and we also sometimes have games on Wednesdays, but those are on hold over Thanksgiving week.
I’m also not available during Iowa State games.
This weekend I’m going to Manhattan. Next weekend I have house guests.
December 6, I’m having a Guys’ Night to watch the new ROCKY movie.
So basically Mondays and Thursdays frequently work.
At least that is what comes to mind.
I have photography classes on Monday nights – not next Monday, but the three following. So I’d be free next Monday, or almost every Thursday night. Probably not Thanksgiving. 🙂 Or tomorrow.
I also usually have lunchtime free, except on Thursdays. A certain Jon DeWaard could probably be convinced to attend a lunchtime event, too.
Next Monday is an Iowa State home game, but if we did it before the game, I could be game.
This Thursday we are having Network Engineering Night.
I’d be down for lunch, but I’m worried that after I try this concoction, I would be sick the rest of the day.
