more clobber

I've been tossing this one around for a while.

Macro or no Macro??

Do I or don't I??

Hesitate more or say 'what the hell??'
'What the Hell?? Why not!!!'  I'm about to turn 40 (soonish) so Happy Birthday pressie to me from me.

Canon 100mm f2.8 USM Macro

now I can work on capturing shots like this..... with a lot of practise!!!

and a new camera backpack to fit it all in

Lowepro Flipside 400 AW Backpack
ps. that's not my bag and thats not my gear. I'm a Canon girl and that's Nikon hardware. Looks very full doesn't it!!

Cant wait for my happy mail.

Hi Tiff,here are a couple of slow cooker recipes that I use.
2kg steak diced
half cup plain flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 onions sliced or diced
2 capsicums sliced or diced
2 stalks of celery
2 carrots diced (if you want)
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
2 x 425 cans tomato soup
put flour in a plastic bag with 1 teaspoon salt & half teaspoon pepper put steak into bag and toss around once steak is coated tip the bags contents into slow cooker
add chopped vegetables,worcestershire sauce,remaining salt & pepper add tom soup cook on low 7-10 hours or high for 4 hours. I add a bit more pepper and worcestershire sauce cause I like a little bit of spice

Hi Tiff, it is me again.
Here is my recipe for corned beef
2 bay leaves
1 large onion sliced
3 strips of orange peel
4 whole cloves
2 litres of water
2-2.5kg corned beef
put bay leaves,onion,orange peel cloves,and water into slow cooker give it a stir add corned beef with the fat side facing up cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 5-6 hours.These times for both recipes are only an estimate.

By the way there isnt anything wrong with Nikon (wink,wink)
Good luck with your book. Alison
