They called it “Fashetti” 🎊
Creamy, tinned ‘sauce’ (if you can call condensed soup that) pasta goodness 😋 this was a recipe my Gran kindly bestowed upon our family - in times of needing a quick fix that ticks all boxes including (but not limited to); tasty, homey, Italian - but not really - and so moreish you need to make a huuuge pot so there’s plenty left for lunch the next day 😁 sometimes the simplest of dishes bring the most happiness, for a variety of reasons ... but this one means family ❤️

Today was draining.
I came back in Glasgow last Wednesday but two days in the city and got one bad flu boi in my body.
As school started back yesterday, I can’t recover all day at home anymore and today was an all-day lectures. I decided that if I had the courage to go to those lectures today, then I could have the courage to go to a coffeeshop near home.
SO, first latte back in Glasgow, I name The Steamie! An old time favourite, always comforting and so so good. Missed my lattes. I didn’t stayed long cause my health was clearly not at its top yet. But hey, it felt good to be back in my natural element for a bit.
Salami spianata romana, mozzarella di bufala campana and sautéd portobello mushrooms. Simply irresistible 😋
hullo sexy, was just thinkin aboot ye 😍
Okay so this isn’t brunch... hey ho, what canya do?! I sometimes branch out from brunch, no big news to report here, all is well... move along, move along✌🏼These are the Buffalo Soldier Fries from @abandonchips
at the @dockyardsocial
😍Waffle fries, buffalo pulled pork chicken, blue cheese sauce and sliced celery. Chips have definitely upped their game lately. Between @breadmeatsbread
chips and all other chip places (lol maybe not Blue Lagoon and actual chippies 😂) but it seems chips are the new QUEEN BEE 🐝 Anyone else have any favourite places for gourmet chips?!

So I've been sharing ways to improve the lighting in your own photography. But I hear you say : "The restaurant owner will come after me with a butcher's knife, if I turn off the house lights to get a better shot!"... I know! In a restaurant things are really difficult. During the day you can choose the table right by the window and hope that the natural lighting is brighter than the house lights, but it's just not always possible to get that seat or to go there during the day. That's when photographers use their professional lighting systems. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There is a shortcut that sometimes works, but I'm a bit nervous to mention it - I'm calling it a last resort.
Finding the perfect natural light (like I did in this shot) is still first choice and please don't use any filters to make your images murky! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But if you have to, you can turn to an editing app. Just remember that an app can never fix what you did wrong originally. It can only make it look a little better. AND USE SPARINGLY!
There are quite a few apps available. Some are designed for photographers and some are simple and effective for everyone. I chose a free and simple one and I've turned to it to edit my shots more and more. It will never be Photoshop, but for small digital images and social media it's fine.
Snapseed is a straightforward FREE app with a White Balance Tool. When you place the white balance tool over an area that is meant to be white, it adjusts all the colour in the shot - changing a yellowy plate to a clear white plate. Your shadows might still be slightly bluey, but the overall effect is much better. If you want to know more about it you can go and have a look on my blog, where you'll find a full tutorial. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Let’s not ask if I poured a few spoonfuls of @johnny_dorannn
seafood chowder over this starter special from @mussel_inn
🙈 cause I’d deny it forever and ever and ever (but it made it pretty spectacular) ! However, it was a light, fresh dish regardless of creamy sauce adornment ... although I’m not sure I’d jump all over it if I met it in a dimly lit restaurant again, a girl gotta have some class 💁🏻♀️ the seafood chowder on the other hand, damn I wish I’d chosen it ! But then again, they do always say grass is greener eh 😋
Petit yogurt cakes w fromage fraise creme, brambles, dark chocolate, orange zest, almonds ... I was feeling inspired 🌿
