Yah, there’s nothing like a bit of luscious bokeh to bring that dreamy feel to a photograph.
Bokeh is the term photographers use to refer to the out-of-focus area of a photograph that is created by one sweet lens. It’s a great technique in creating that peaceful, serene feel within a photograph. I’m always looking for opportunity to utilize this technique. So, to each of you ladies who responded on Thursday to my post in favor of the #2 photo: because you share an admiration of that dreamy look, and since I’m always looking for the opportunity to build my portfolio, I would be delighted to take some shots of you and your man, compliments of my adventuresome little heart. Just email me to set it up! Ü
To the rest of you I offer this simple, yet tasty dish. It’s a casserole so it’d be perfect to throw in the oven this weekend, in between doing all the things you want to cram into two short days!
Chicken Broccoli Casserole
4 large chicken bre*sts
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
2 – 3 cups lightly steamed broccoli
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup slivered or sliced almonds
Place chicken in a pot, fill with water to about an inch above chicken. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer until done. Cool chicken, bone, and cut into large chuncks. Steam the broccoli for only half of the time you normally would, then cool. Place the chicken in the bottom of a 9×13 dish; place broccoli on top. Combine all other ingredients, except almonds, and pour on top. Bake at 350º for approximately one hour. Sprinkle almonds on top. Spread over rice, or just serve it up all on it’s own.
