As Soon as I saw this I thought, this person is a chef and a photographer. I love the idea & photos. Yum, I will have to try a vegetarian version.

If you can eat seafood, scallops are great this way.  Smiley

If you have a Rosemary tree/bush you can use the branches as tasty kabob skewers.
You can also sometimes find Rosemary branches at the grocery store.







I also like using the branches to make herb basting brushes out of.







I have more pics of making kabobs and a recipe here.

this is tremendous!  Can you give us a ball park figure on cost to make this setup?  Where did you find the solar pump contraption?  Well done!

There is a link to the pump in the story link in the first post of this thread. It is from amazon and was under $50 bucks.

This whole project ended up costing a lot more than planed. The screened enclosure part really was not that bad, maybe $60. Which I think is the part everybody likes. Adding the stand I built it on, the box itself and the pump and your looking over $200.

I did spread the cost over three weekends, the first weekend making the box, the second screening it in and the third putting in the solar watering.

But I originally was not planning to spend this much. But hey, I got a great deal on the plants themselfs!
64  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Spiral cut hot dogs on: July 05, 2012 04:30:16 PM
In case you missed it, the Internet foodie community has been all a buzz this past week about spiral cut hot dogs.

It is not really a new idea, but the good folks at Chow posted a great how-to video on the subject that has gone foodie viral.

I gave it a try yesterday and they turned out pretty good. The spiral leaves nice slots that toppings can fit into and they fit the bun better.













More pics and a video here.

This is so awesome!

I didn't have any problems with birds with my garden since I had a net up, but unfortunately afids came to attack so the only thing left is my dill plant.

I think the solar powered watering system is pretty neat as well. What would happen if you forgot to put water in your bucket though?

The instructions that came with the pump said to not run it with no water, so I guess it would not be good for the pump (or plants) if I forgot to fill the bucket up. I have been filling it every morning before I go in to work, but I think the 5 gallon bucket would last 2 days if I did not fill it up at its current setting. I could probably double that if I turn the setting down a notch.

I guess if I plan to go out of town longer than that I will need to get a larger water container.

I was just saying, "this better be real!" and it IS. Looks yummy.

Yep, quite real Smiley

But a funny thing is I have actually made a not real 3D burger once for an illustration.
I am a graphic artist and work a lot in a 3D program called lightwave.

Here is an image of the 3D model I made



And how it turned out when I was done.


68  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / juicy burger tip on: July 03, 2012 03:49:39 PM
Went back to burger basics this weekend. Made the classic all-American burger to get into the mood of 4th of July.









My big tip for making juicy burgers is to add cold water to your meat.
The cold water binds with the cold hamburger meat to give you extra moisture and a juicy burger.
Usually it is a quarter to half cup of water per pound.

I have more burger photos and tips here.

It's terrific!  Does the water in the bucket get very hot? 

I don't think so, I refill it each morning. It is under the raised bed so it is not in direct sunlight. Of course it has been 100+ here in Fort Worth.  Cheesy

I wanted to read your 6 foot snake story, but your link is broken Sad It's just http. which isn't particularily useful.

Sorry, fixed the link.
