This week, the Smartphone Challenge is “Some habits are good, and some are bad. Your inspiration this week is either”.
To the best of my knowledge, I am entirely devoid of good habits, so that narrows it down a bit.
However, I have it on the very highest authority that, among a plethora of bad habits, my alleged inability to close cupboard doors properly ranks very highly in terms of irritation-generating capacity.
Dunno what all the fuss is about….

Week 23 of the Smartphone Challeneg is, frankly, a bit of an odd one. We are invited to use strong leading lines in food photography.

This week, Cee’s theme has come round again to anything that might be found in a kitchen. Strictly speaking, I suppose, this table setting in the restored refectory of the Abbaye de La Réau isn’t exactly kitchenware. There again, where else would the dishwasher be?

Frank has chosen ‘Kitchen’ as the theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge, so here is an image from the restored kitchens of the medieval Abbaye de La Réau.
Clearly, these are not the original pots and pans and jars – unless Bonne Maman has been making jam for a lot longer than anyone has ever suspected.

For this week’s edition of Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – and my 100th post on this site, to boot – here’s one of the most important appliances in my kitchen (and quite probably many of yours too).
